My mother has always said ‘It doesn’t cost anything to be kind’ and in that I would have to say she is one of the kindest people that I know. So I’m very lucky to have had this influence all my life. The loving-kindness she shows me as her daughter is the same that she shows everyone. Ok I might be a tiny bit more special in her eyes being her daughter but essentially she treats everyone with the same loving-kindness as that’s the way she would like to be treated.
What happens when this same loving-kindness isn’t reciprocated? It certainly cuts straight to the core of our hearts. Deep down no-one wants to be cruel however at some point being vulnerable that someone has been hurt and instead of showing loving-kindness, that person has lashed out in attack or withdrawn from the situation, whichever fight or flight response has won out in the moment of uncertainty.
The fight/flight response is a physiological reaction that occurs in response to a perceived harmful event, attack, or threat to survival. However, it’s not as required in this century as it was thousands of years for fear of dinosaurs or equivalent. More so now, we need to meet our interactions as moments to grow. So rather than going on the attack or thinking about withdrawing from the situation how can we stay present, acknowledge that hurt, remain open and resolve the situation?
We need to come from a place of positivity. We need to acknowledge our shadow side and look to the light side of ourselves asking ‘how can I turn this situation around?’ How can I make this a win/win/win? Remind yourself – Be kind, be friendly, be compassionate. To quote the Dalai Lama XIV, from his book The Art of Happiness, “Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.” To evolve as a collective, we must practice this perfection all of time. We need to show love and compassion to ourselves so that we can show others the same love and compassion.
Imagine if everyone lived their lives from a space of loving-kindness. Well, it starts with us an individual. If we can remain in our hearts regarding all our brothers and sisters, we can be one with all. We need to transform adversity into detachment or non-attachment. We can do this by showing loving-kindness and compassion. Lady Nada is the quintessential Ascended Master who can be invoked to assist in learning this perfection. She can help us with self-acceptance, self responsibility and unconditional love. Invoke Lady Nada x 3 and ask her to show you how you can create win/win/win situations.
Aura-Soma tip – Use the pink pomander for unconditional love, self acceptance, self care, self responsibility, loving-kindness and compassion. Or use the green pomander as a means to connect to the emerald green of the heart so that you create the space to connect with yourself and others. The Lady Nada quintessence ritual is also a wonderful way to start or finish the day.
