About Love and Compassion

We all seek Love and Understanding.

But, what does Love towards another being exactly mean?

montagna%203It means being one with the other, feeling like one only enegy flow. Like a river flowing into the ocean without asking itself where it goes and why…. It means being open to the Unknown.

A loving person should be understanding and unconditionally loving. Why? Because we are humans, therefore we mentally need to understand the other, but spiritually we love that person for what he/she is, and not for what we want him/her to be.

As Love and Compassion are within us, we need to nurture them. How? By walking in the park and breathing the air and listening to the twittering birds, or on the shore, watching the sea waves and hearing their sound.

Every day it happens that my heart connects to another heart by giving out my compassion…. for example, when I listen to the world news, or when I am told of stories that make me want to be near the persons who are suffering…..

It happened last week, while I was listening to the story of a mother who had her son killed and still can’t have peace, because justice was not given to her yet. Or, when I was thinking of my colleague who has problems in being alone and is of course suffering because of this. Or, when I think of all the people in Europe who are losing their jobs, or have already lost their jobs and have lost hope too. Or when I think of the people of Syria who are suffering since years now because of the war, and the children that are killed there – and in other parts of the world – for no reason……

Letting Love flow without restriction feels like I am nearer those I am giving love to. What a beautiful experience it is to give out one’s love unconditionally!





A small thought on…. Meditation and Awareness

Meditation can help us come into touch with some of our inborn enlightened qualities like Unconditional Love, Faith, Strength to endure hardships, Peace of Mind and Forgiveness….

When we get to have – through meditation – a glimpse of our True Being, we feel a deep Peace of Mind. We become more aware of the twittering birds around us, as well as of the smell of the flowers that we cannot see because they are not near us…. all our senses seem to be awakened, and the Nature around us speaks a language we are able to understand – and yet we have never learned… a language of true Happiness, of Gratitude for the blessings all around us, a language of True Love.

Unfortunately, many times life brings us apart from our natural unity with the Universal Consciousness. Trying to always be present in the moment and remembering that we are not alone, is a way to tap into this Universal Awareness. How lovely it is to go walking in the park… seeing the green and listening to the twittering birds… or how lovely it is to walk along the seashore, only listening to the sound of Nature…. Let us be grateful for the Beauty of Nature that surrounds us: the plants, the animals, the flowers….

Peace of Mind, Joy and Feeling satisfied of what we have all give us a glimpse of Enlightenment or Fulfillment in life. Everyday life makes us forget who we truly are. Always remember that we are also Light and Pure Awareness. We need to experience this joy and peace through our True Selves, just like we need to breathe….. Being the Light we are is all that matters, because this is our unique Self.
