Sis & I, got ready for our morning walk.
To our surprise, our lovely cat, Little White was waiting at the front gate. He wanted to follow us too.
Whenever we move forward, he followed. To care for his safety, we detour to our little garden at backyard instead of continue our morning walk.
How do you feel if you can’t follow your schedule? Are you angry? Are your emotional being disturbed?
This is a great moment to check on our practice.
I am totally fine, still in peace, not being disturbed by change plan.
It’s great to contemplate:
Everything changes, nothing remains without change.
I took a walk in our little garden while my sister was playing with Little White.
Look at the happy cat…he is truly loving! What an intelligent being!
Besides that, When I walked around our little garden, Check out some other beings…
A great day to start to practice Loving Kindness to all beings.
I would like to share with you the sutra on loving kindness, the Buddha says:
” As a mother would risk her life
to protect her child, her only child,
Even so should one cultivate a limitless heart,
with regard to all beings.
With good will for the entire cosmos,
cultivate a limitless heart:
Above, below or all around,
unobstructed, without enmity or hate,
whether standing or walking,
sitting, or lying down,
As long as one is alert,
One should be resolved on this mindfulness.
(METTA SUTTA, from the SUTTA NIPATA 1:8)
May all beings be Well and Happy!
