In my meditations this morning, I came across a Blessing Chant, I’d kike to share it with you. It is a chant adapted from the Pattanumodana (Teachings of Buddha >edited by Jack Kornnfield)
Just as water flowing in the streams and rivers fills the ocean, thus may all your moments of goodness touch and benefit all beings, those here now and those gone before.
May all your wishes be soon fulfilled as completely as the moon on a full moon night, as successfully as from the Wish-Fulfilling Gem. May all dangers be averted; may all disease leave you.
May no obstacles come across your way and may you enjoy happiness and long life.
May those who are always respectful,honoring the way of the elders, prosper in the four blessings of old age, beauty, happiness, and strength.
PL’s lesson of the day is about being pro-active, in an ever changing society. a reminder to keep our minds and eyes in tune with the changes and to learn to deal with them in a proactive manner. This busy picture taken in Amsterdam, Nederlands (found on Pinterest) while peaceful in it’s own way, is not the tranquility captured by the photographer of the top picture.
Where would you like to be today? Which destination captures your imagination, if you could close your eyes and with a snap of the fingers be right there, in what direction would you go? Choices, ahhhh isn’t life grand! Have a blissful day everyone!
