“The river that flows in you also flows in me”Kabir
Compassion is akin to the “Maitru-Prem” or the unconditional Motherly love towards her children.
However, when it comes to us, our inner critic is always active. Telling us always
“You got late today. You’re lazy.”
“The client was unhappy. You don’t know your job.”
“Your child smoked pot today. You’re been a bad parent.”
We internalise these chides.
However, if we gave ourselves some “Maitru -prem”; understood our own selves, our circumstances better. Life would be happier.
We definitely need to know that inside us, as inside everyone else, flows that infinite oneness. The super-consciousness.
As we commence our life of being kind and compassionate to ourselves, mystically we begin to touch that inner power.
Try it out. Stop criticising yourself. Let mistakes be forgiven.
Don’t we ever get ready to start a fresh relationship with people?
Start a fresh relationship with yourself. Today.
One based on compassion, understanding. Non-judgmental.
Forgiving your own failings.
Try it out for a week. Tell me in my blog if nothing changes in your life.
I say with conviction that something will. Definitely.
