~ Dalai Lama
Many people walk through life unhappy. Because of this, their inner dialogue is critical, they project their unhappiness on the events around them and have difficulty seeing the good that is available to them. When dealing with these people, one may think that gentle words will go unheard; however, the awakened soul understands the infinite potential to be realized in the seeds of kindness.
Never underestimate the power of compassion. When you can slow down a busy moment in order to grace someone with a smile or share positive words, it changes them. It changes you and creates a spark of energy that has a life of it’s own.
Remember that every thought, word and action sends ripples of infinite energy throughout the Universe. Each of us is affecting the world around us, whether we are aware of it or not, and those who are awakened have the responsibility to share light that illuminates the darkness.
Your unique and loving energy is a gift to those around you.
Today my intention is to be a compassionate listener.
