We think that happiness is possible when we have the power to consume, but by consuming we bring into us a lot of toxins and poisons. The way we eat, the way we watch television and the way we entertain ourselves brings us a lot of destruction. Because we consume so much, the environment suffers.
Learning to consume only the things that can bring peace and health into our body and into our consciousness is a very important practice. Mindful consumption is the practice that can bring us out of much of our unhappiness.
By consuming unmindfully, we continue to bring the elements of craving, fear and violence into ourselves. There is so much suffering in people. They consume because they do not know how to handle their suffering. Something should be done to help people go home to themselves and take care of their suffering.
Thich Nhat Hanh
“There is no path to peace. The path is peace.”
There is no need to suffer. There is every need to come Home to ourselves, where everything can be found.
This is exactly what I do: assist people to return “home to themselves and take care of their suffering”.
It’s not about me, it’s about introducing them to all the power and greatness, the beauty and magic already in there, so that they can take excellent care of themselves….so that they know who they really are, which goes way beyond believing in themselves…although it may start there.
It’s wonderful for humans to be there for each other, to give and receive love, to be part of a mutually supportive community that can do good for each other and the world.
It is phenomenal, however, to be able to turn inward and meet an entire Universe and all of Heaven, including one’s Soul within oneself, and to experience being Consciousness itself.
It is a magical world within ourselves, where we are complete and whole, powerful and wise beyond measure. Imagine being Invincible Love itself, the energy that created not only this Universe but EVERYTHING in existence.
When we really KNOW this, from every cell of our body, from every part of our entire Being, we will want for nothing. Ever again. No matter what’s happening in our external life. Meanwhile, enjoy the human experience, as we move towards this magnificent end.
LOVE TO ALL. ABUNDANCE FOR ALL.
