“In the practice of tolerance, one’s enemy is the best teacher.” ~ Dalai Lama
It’s February already! I always think of Valentine’s Day wishes for you at this time; I have so many I could send your way. I deeply believe that if you love yourself you can effortlessly extend that love. This can help heal the world.
The practice by the Dalai Lama is an empowering exercise. Try it, you’ll like it! Call or email me to let me know how it works for you. If you have trouble with this practice, I can help you get better results.
1. Spend 5 minutes at the beginning of each day remembering we all want the same things (to be happy and be loved) and we are all connected to one another.
2. Spend 5 minutes breathing in, cherishing yourself; and, breathing out cherishing others. If you think about people you have difficulty cherishing, extend your cherishing to them anyway.
3. During the day extend that attitude to everyone you meet. Practice cherishing the ‘simplest’ person (clerks, attendants, etc) or people you dislike.
4. Continue this practice no matter what happens or what anyone does to you. These thoughts are very simple, inspiring and helpful. The practice of cherishing can be taken very deeply if done wordlessly, allowing yourself to feel the love and appreciation that already exists in your heart.”
