Good Things Come to Those Who Wake~Buddhist Thought for the Day


"Let your love flow outward through the universe, To its height, its depth, its broad extent, A limitless love, without hatred or enmity. Then as you stand or walk, Sit or lie down, As long as you are awake, Strive for this with a one-pointed mind; Your life will bring heaven to earth."
~Sutta Nipata

I was sitting in a meditation group recently and when the sitting session was over,a woman pointed to the billboard outside the window
(for a popular food chain store) which read:

"Good Things Come To Those Who Wake".

Ah....to bring HEAVEN TO EARTH....if we all did that, there would be no need to send troops anywhere. I guess it's up to each individual. What a lovely thought Kirsten. Enjoy a PEACEFUL and WAKEFUL weekend dear. Anita

Kirsten dear,

Yes, all I can do this morning as 50 kids walk into my room is to literally take one moment at a time. I had such a lovely summer, that I want to just bring in the sunshine in my memory and let joy take me on the ride. That usually helps me cope!!!

You have yourself a wonderful week!!! THANKS FOR VISITING! Anita
