The Garden of Love and Compassion
Our hearts are like a garden. Whatever seeds we sow, will grow and blossom. We can decide to grow seeds of compassion, embracing not only our foibles, but those of others whom we may perceive as hurting or bothering us, or we can choose to harvest the blossoms of fear and resentment. We can decide to see through the eyes of love and kindness, or we can notice poverty or greed. We may select to bring joy and understanding to whatever we are doing, or we can complain and blame others for our life situation. We can see ourselves and others as Buddhas, or we can put on the goggles of enmity and embrace wars near and far.
Enter the Garden of Love and Compassion and choose Joy!
