I want to take a few moments to offer some advice at this difficult time in our human history. Some of my friends here have asked me questions about how to fight evil and the answer is simple: the love that is within you. When you die the one question is: How loving were you? What loving choices did you make? The most important moments in our lives are those actions done from sheer love. We often get confused about meaning in our lives and the system makes us feel meaningless and worthless. Love in the media is not accurate. We don’t need another to have love; love is inside us and comes from within. We have love because we are loving and we love. Pure moments of love can be found in simple moments where we pause and appreciate the transcendent beauty of a flower or a sunset; the moment we pet our cat or dog and pause to enjoy sheer love. Don’t underestimate the healing power of animals, nature and relationships born from a true love within yourself. If you are feeling oppressed I suggest putting on some Chanting monk music (Christian, Buddhist, Bible or Quran depending on your preference). Imagine the light of love welling up from your stomach and filling your entire body. Think of an animal/person or thing in nature which is beautiful and you love; enjoy a sheer moment of love. These moments have ripples in the universe. Practice kindness in little deeds, like an unsolicited compliment to the checker at the grocery store. See their happy response and try to feel sheer love. Love yourself, even your imperfections and know you are perfect right now as you are created in sheer love and love is your meaning. No one can steal the love within. Even our greatest heroes realize moments of love during persecution. Love snuffs and obliterates evil. We are not worthless. Love is better than riches and is true power.
