One of Buddha’s legacies was the perfect definition of what true love in action means. It is not love as we have known it, the one that worries about the future, the one that imprisons, which purpose is to change our loved ones into what we want them to be. He doesn’t refers to the kind of love that we give exclusively to those around our close circle but the one we give freely to anyone and anything in our path. It has been hundreds of years since he spoke about pure love. It has taken us too long to understand his teachings. In the meantime we have been grounded in the old vision of the ME point of view; the one that focuses exclusively on the needs of our personal ego. Fortunately, the Me is changing. The Buddha has been heard!
More and more we are witnessing a shift. We are realizing that the Me stand do not serves us anymore. On the contrary, it has only directed us to the point of individualism and alienation that has caused so many problems leading to injustice, inequity, and spiritual starvation we suffer these days. Finally, our souls have been shouting a collective intent to get out of our isolation, willing to get rid of useless patterns and willing to embrace the We consciousness that will ultimately save us as a human race.
It has taken us too long, too many wars, and too many tears, mental, physical, and emotional stress. It has taken a lifetime of experiences. But, at the end of the tunnel, the light is shining bright. The way I see it, we still need to work hard. Many more souls are still to join the “reclaiming our hearts nature” movement. In the meantime, in a world that has been plagued by fear, the words of ancient wise men are paving their way back to us to remind us that we all belong and because we belong, it is our duty to work together as one. Will you be the next one to join?
“True love extends to all people and all beings. There’s no discrimination. There’s no attachment. It brings only happiness and eases suffering. It is kind and compassionate and through it life is filled with peace, joy, and contentment.” ~Buddha~
