Here are your fresh Love & Inspirations for the week ahead:
“ I think it is essential sometimes to go into retreat, to stop everything that you have been doing, to stop your beliefs and experiences completely and look at them anew, not keep on repeating like machines whether you believe or don’t believe. You would let fresh air into your minds.” — Jiddu Krishnamurti
2) Bodhisattva Prayer for All Humanity
- Bodhisattva Prayer for All Humanity – Shantideva, Indian Buddhist sage 700 A.D.
I love this prayer because it reminds me that we all carry within us the capacity to awaken, if we so choose, and that this awakening process is an ongoing, personal, continual and life-long journey. It also reminds me that what matters is how we show up in the world, how we respond to life and its challenges, and in the face of challenges, its reminds me that we can help each other and approach the challenge with love and compassion rather than fear and anger.
“May I be a guard for those who need protection,
a guide for those on the path,
a boat, a raft, a bridge for those who wish to cross the flood.
May I be a lamp in the darkness,
a resting place for the weary,
a healing medicine for all who are sick,
a vase of plenty, a tree of miracles.
And for the boundless multitudes of living beings,
may I bring sustenance and awakening,
enduring like the earth and sky
until all beings are freed from sorrow
and all are awakened.
3) 5 Love Languages Quiz
- Quiz – Discover your Love Language – Gary Chapman
Understanding our own love language, and those of our loved ones, has for many, including myself, been a game changer.
I have a friend for example, whose husband came home every day from work, cooked her dinner, gave her a foot massage and yet they fought all the time because all she wanted was for him to ask her how she was, and about her day. They were simply speaking different love language.
The premise of Gary Chapman’s 5 Love Languages is simple. Each person gives and receives love in a certain language, and learning how to be more fluent in the love languages of yourself and your loved ones, can help you to better understand and express your needs thereby strengthening and enhancing your relationships.
The 5 Love Language are: Acts of Service,Physical Touch, Receiving Gifts, Quality time, and words of affirmation.
What are your primary love languages?
