Sometimes it is difficult to accept things as they are, to come to a patient acceptance. I have looked at the role of the 'bodhisattva', one who postpones their own enlightenment and happiness, to compassionately help liberate others. I am convinced that providing unconditional love and compassion heals much. It is the opening to the door of liberation from distress and deluded minds. Pain and turmoil can only cease by knowing unconditional love, of feeling that someone understands, that no matter how bad things are or have been, we can overcome. I think of the term 'namaste', that we are all inter-connected, and we can join our hearts together, and that there exists within all beings the potential, the seed of goodness and light. It is this unconditional love and compassion that waters this seed and helps it to grow. I think of the lotus, a beautiful flower blossoming from the muck, such a symbol of our world, that from despair, hopelessness, and sufferings, can blossom forth goodness and inner peace.
