In order to be a great husband, wife, parent, friend, daughter, assistant or being in any relationship for that matter one has to be able to be completely selfless. What I have learned in working with Herb and thru this period of my life (much of which has switched to contemplative) is selflessness and surrendering one’s desires and wants is the first step to happiness. Giving yourself up for others allows one to see this world from another person’s side. Being able to look, see, hear, feel, and taste what others do is an amazing feat. Helps us keep ourselves in check and is humbling. What a precious gift so easily overlooked. It makes you understand just how blessed we are. We need these reality checks often.
When you understand what other’s views are you are able to relate on other levels to humanity as a whole, you can connect other’s with similar standpoints, make more connections between subject matter, and connect with other’s better. For one who has issues to commitments and has issues with putting other’s first before their own want’s–It’s a matter of need vs. want. Peace comes from with in the deep core of one’s soul. Peace comes from balance and if one is out of balance it will never come to be.
Thought to leave you all with: If we are not balanced and peaceful, then how can we ever expect there to be world peace? What can we do to find that peace and pass it along in our own world? Do we need love? What can you do today to find peace and obtain love?
Begin with you and radiate with great light!
