And so a question:
Am I a human manifestation who is conscious
consciousness manifested as a human?
Me thinks the later.
From a single consciousness we humans spring,
and all are one.
With this awakening
I see that the suffering of one is the suffering of many
and that the joy of another is also my joy.
This insight suggests
a slight twist to the Golden Rule may be in order:
“As I treat others, I also treat myself.”
As I practice loving kindness, compassion and joy
the same will be manifest in others
and be returned to me many times over.
Our practice changes our consciousness
AND the consciousness of our world.
Maybe changing the world really isn’t so complicated.
Who? Me? Change the World?
Me thinks so……
