Meditations for January 2022

Jan. 1-8th:For the heart is the root of one’s being and exists in every plane of one’s being. In each plane the heart is the center, and the health, the power, beauty, wisdom and success of life all depend upon the condition of the heart.” (Tasawwuf by POM Hazrat Inayat Khan). Let us meditate on the power, beauty, health, wisdom and success flowing from our hearts.

Jan. 9-15th: “He who blames others has a long way to go on his or her journey. The one who blames himself/herself is halfway there. The one who blames no one has arrived.” (Chinese Proverb). Let us meditate on releasing all blame and arriving at the door of the open heart.

Jan. 16-22nd: “Every wonderful sight will vanish, every sweet word will fade, but do not be disheartened, the source they come from is eternal, growing, branching out, giving new life and new joy. Why do you weep? The source is within you, and this whole world is springing up from it.” (Maulana Jelaluddin Rumi) Let us meditate on the Source of All.

Jan. 23-29th:Not one of you is a believer until one loves for their sister and brother what one loves for themselves.” (Fourth Hadith of an-Nawawi 13). Let us meditate on the greatness and expansion of love pouring from our hearts to all beings.

Nov. 1-9: “Now, no matter what behavior you are seeking to change, no matter what particular goal or action you are directing your efforts towards, you need to start developing a strong willingness or wish to do it.” (H.H. the Dalai Lama) Let us meditate on directing our action toward the fulfillment of our wishes.

Nov. 10-16: “As far as my own spiritual practice goes, if I encounter some obstacles or problems, I find it helpful to stand back and take a long-term view rather than the short-term view.” (H.H. the Dalai Lama) Let us meditate on taking the long-term view.

Nov. 19-23: “In our daily life experiences, tolerance and patience have great benefits. For instance, developing them will allow us to sustain and maintain our presence of mind. So if an individual possesses this capacity of tolerance and patience, then, even in spite of living in a very tense environment, which is very frantic and stressful, so long as the person has tolerance and patience, the person’s calmness and peace of mind will not be disturbed.” (H.H. the Dalai Lama) Let us meditate on our calmness and peace of mind.

Nov. 24-30: “By faith the flood is crossed, By wakefulness the sea; By vigor ill is passed; By wisdom cleansed is he. “ (Samyutta Nikaya). Let us meditate on faith, wakefulness, vigor and wisdom.

May this Sacred Season bring you all insight, joy and peace.
