when i take the good morning photo
just before pushing the button on my phone
and in my mind as i look out at the view
i say a little blessing.
based on Metta meditation
but modified a bit:
may all beings who see this image
& live with ease
sometimes, i’ll add:
and may all people they know and love be safe, be happy, be healthy, & live with ease
someone once said to me
that one shouldn’t broadcast or tell people about the details of their spiritual practice.
i’m not sure why
i’ve always wondered about it since then
maybe it dilutes the power of it…?
maybe people will think i’m all “holier-than-thou”…?
i don’t honestly know why.
seeing the power of homeopathy, i don’t really believe in the dilution of power.
and i am no holier than thou
except for tailgaters.
I AM holier than tailgaters.
(except when i’m swearing at them, so i guess i’m not holier than tailgaters…)
if i share about this
perhaps other people will act from this place of blessing, too.
and my main teacher, she speaks about sharing…
and the benefit of it.
i’m going to be moving some time soon.
i don’t know if the view will be such that i’ll take a good morning photo each day.
i’m not sure yet.
and with appreciation for all those who’ve enjoyed this daily ritual
blessings on the day.
