Yoga Wisdom of The Day ~ equanimityasana = align with your true essence
“My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.” – Dalai Lama
Kindness takes practice because we’re used to focusing upon and worrying about our own little life. But one of the wonders of kindness is that it can put your own worries into perspective and may even momentarily dissolve them.
Kindness is the medicine we all urgently need. So don’t hesitate for a moment, get out there and spread kindness as much as you can.
You’ll have no need for POSSESSIONS or FAME as your body dissolves at the end of your life. All the experiences you’ve collected will also fade away.
What really matters at that defining moment will be how you’ve led your life and the state of your mind. Fill it now with kindness and you’ll have no regrets.
I know you’re already a very good person, but sometimes kindness gets lost in the hustle of a busy life.
So this is just a reminder of the many enjoyable ways you can manifest kindness:
- Show appreciation
- Pay attention
- Express love
- Gift giving
- Offer a compliment
- Roll up your sleeves and help
- Being tolerant
- Instead of judging, seek to understand
- Encourage peace and harmony
- Donate to a charity
- Praise another person/rejoicing in their success
The joy is you’ll feel good too. Relaxed, open and spacious with a deep sense of well-being.
