Daily Motivation 238
For most the week is split into two:
1) Monday to Friday, and whatever that entails for you (children, work etc)
2) Friday to Sunday, and your ‘release’ from the above
Friday nights, Saturday lunches, Saturday night, Sunday lunches and Sunday evening can all be trigger times so getting prepared NOW on Friday morning is key.
So what is YOUR intention for the weekend?
I’d like to share with you what I have put on the wall in place of my vision board in front of my desk, at eye level, as promised yesterday. It has become my daily focus and I read it out loud each morning to set the energy of the day; the following is a short section of the whole vow:
The Bodhisattva Vow
Just as the earth and the other three elements, together with space, eternally nourish and sustain all beings
So may I become that source of nourishment and sustenance which maintains all beings situated through space, as long as all have not attained peace
When the Sugatas of former times committed themselves to the Bodhicitta, they gradually established themselves in the practice of a Bodhisattva
So I too commit myself to the Bodhicitta for the welfare of beings and will gradually establish myself in the practice of a Bodhisattva
Taking the Bodhicitta
May the great jewel, the Bodhicitta
not yet born, be born
Born, may it not decrease,
But increase from height to height
I hope these words lift you as they do me, even though you may not be a Buddhist
It is about being our own unique best
Realising our potential
And then once we have witnessed what is in our hearts, helping others along the path too
We then understand that it was all meant to be like this
We were supposed to struggle SO THAT we could assist others on their journey
None of it was wrong
It’s ok, you were meant to experience all of that you have
For now that becomes the ashes for your beautiful future to grow
So what are YOU building on the foundation of your past?
What is in place TODAY to ensure a happy, sober weekend?
