You are Lovingkindness. So just let it be!
LovingKindness is not something that religious
and spiritual traditions have created or generated!
It is the original essence of our green planet,
eternal and interstellar. And we humans have
evolved exactly to activate it with our thoughts,
actions and deeds. That is the unique talent of
LovingKindness is the fragrance of the flame
of divinity which we can each kindle with our
wisdom, especially at this time of disintegration
and division of our societies. Each flame is
different and essential to the completed glow
of full harmony and happiness.
LovingKindness is our human right both to give
and receive. So, during the day ahead, let these
words stay with you in all your encounters.
Extend LovingKindness to yourself as well
as others, the planet beneath your feet and
the air above your head.
You are LovingKindness. So be it.

We are born from the body of our mother,
we grow steadily, get old and then we die.
This is the natural way for all things in the
material world. This is the nature of all materials
– they appear and they disappear.
Death is a terrifying thought for most of us
because we become so attached to the material
world. We spend all our energy identifying with
everything that is visible,
holding on to it literally for dear life!
We know we are going to age and die
but we desperately struggle against losing
such a precious thing as human life.
This is the modern materialistic life,
addicted to everything visible,
obsessed with status, reputation and wealth.
We have turned our backs on the universe,
plundering and raping the planet without a care.
We have stopped listening because our eyes have

True nature? I hope you are curious about this phrase. Does it mean that you are doing something that offends others but you cannot control it? That something etched into your character is unchangeable but others wished you would change it? Is it a kind of get-out clause when the going gets rough….’Ah well, it’s in my nature, etc?’
The word nature has many connotations:
something natural and therefore wholesome?
being at ease in any situation, staying calm and always being in control?
showing your shortcomings in public and feeling overwhelming disapproval?
Good natured? Bad natured?
Mother Nature and the Universe?
And so on……
But here I’m talking about something quite magical. So let me start off by telling you a little story. Stories always help because you become a child when you listen and the story magic works on your

Let “day” go by today without measuring or judging,
without trying to pin down your feelings in
the cement of desperation,
without creating a foreground and
background to your thoughts.
Enjoy being vague and smiling
quietly among the flowers.
Let this interval illuminated by the sunlight
and fluff of clouds flow around you like a
wide turquoise river as you listen with all
your swimming being to the voiceless
voices of the universe; opinions and assertions,
evidence and acknowledgements are consigned,
dead in their tracks,
to the dry banks.
Let the interval illuminated by the moonlight
flow around you like a silver ocean pathway
warming and turning you,
the deep baritone of the planet merging and
moving goodness and the divine in and out
on your privileged breath, and through the
countless pores of your skin.
Let us immerse ourselves in unconditional
acceptance like joking dolphins
always one with…

‘Understanding’ in its original sense was not something
we did visually but rather by listening. Sadly, we have
mostly stopped listening except to cyber-babble and
the sound of our own voices.
To be able to listen unconditionally, without reacting,
without judging or objecting…….to listen to everything
from our hearts like the flickering of a light………
and to become that sound we are listening to.…….
is the greatest skill of all.
The visual is always bounded by frames, by screens,
by edges……but the auditory truly has no bounds.
So, lightly close your eyes and listen out into
the infinity of the field of all awareness.
Sound has no beginning and no end.
We cannot interfere with it, conceptualize it or
Like light, it is concrete, complete, a constituent
of the heart.
Listen to the voices of those you encounter today

just be, fully, here and now, eternal.
Spend moments during the day ahead
remembering that you are a
in the masterpiece of all life.
Only you can do what you do, be as you be,
smile as you smile,
breathe borrowed breath in the way that
your unique body breathes it.
Only you can embody the pure unconditional
energy of love the way you do.
So, be fully, now and here, eternally.
