Ahimsa isn’t simply the practice of refraining from harmful words or actions, it’s also about abstaining from harmful thoughts. For violence can manifest not just in our words and actions but also manifest in our inner thoughts.
Ahimsa is to love and respect all living beings.
For isn’t Enlightenment our capacity to love? To be kind to all People? Not just in words, for that is the easy part. When we can do so in our thoughts, what a great service we will have done, not just for ourselves, but for the whole World!
Let’s look at the world through the eyes of Love
Ahimsa is to be aware of our own thoughts. When we feel angry, resentful or any other non-loving emotions we are creating a subtle violence. Instead of reacting and judging people we start to recognise their own pain.
We observe our thoughts instead of reacting to them, detachment starts to arise from within. It is not a coldness, it is a deeper knowing, a wiser perception. Our reactions change. We become more accepting of others as well as ourselves.
Compassion opens the heart
Compassion emerges from our own hearts. And our vibration changes, it becomes more subtle, purer. Wherever you move, a grace moves with you, wherever you go, you share the fragrance of your own heart.
And our Inner Peace is not dependent on outside circumstances anymore, in the way people interact with us. It emerges from within: This is true FREEDOM. This is enlightenment!
Everything we do is filled with a different awareness, we develop presence in each moment and we enjoy all that we do. Life has gained new colours, new flavours. And even in the silence, the inner note of your own heart is known.
The power of Forgiveness
When we forgive others we set them free. And we set ourselves FREE also. Forgive, forgive freely. Don’t hold any grudges. Free yourself! Be brave! Be powerful!!! This is true Ahimsa.
And self-love grows in you, you become more accepting. More knowing. You acquire so much love to give, come forward and the World becomes a richer place, a more loving place, far more fulfilling.
And the note of your own Soul shall be heard across Humanity!
