Cultivate Loving Kindness
In the spiritual tradition through which I developed, we learned a spiritual practice that I believe can have particular importance to spiritual aspirants at this time. This practice is called lojong in Tibetan. Simply stated, lojong is the practice of cultivating loving kindness. When it comes to rolling skills and talents achieved in one lifetime into another, none is as important as the ability to cultivate loving kindness.
While the cultivation of love and compassion is an incredibly important skill, I believe it to be particularly important in times of unrelenting chaos. Many people have discovered over the millennia that to learn to love at progressively vaster and vaster levels, one needs a teacher who has mastered the art of expanding love. In truth, most folks have many teachers from whom they learn something about love. Lessons in love are often learned from people who demonstrate great softness and a loving nature. However, it is important to remember that other significant lessons in love can also arise when learning to adapt to people who do not treat you very well.
What is the practical value of love or the force of love operating in your life? Clearly love should help you move through the day. It should support your center as you take your place in a world that is now notably lacking in equanimity. Love should bring you more self-acceptance, as well as a greater capacity to accept all the things in the world you cannot change. Now here I must clarify that this acceptance is a highly engaged mental state that is categorically different from the mental condition of resignation. Many well-intentioned spiritual aspirants tend to confuse these two mental states, even though their energetic imprints are radically different. Resignation is reluctantly conforming to circumstances but really wishing things could be another way. Acceptance is simply a natural, open response to things as they are. The first step to mastering acceptance is learning how to cultivate neutrality or impartiality.
In Tibetan tradition, all people are taught that every human or animal they have met in the continuum of their lifestream should be treated as if it had been their own mother in a previous incarnation. The power in this teaching lies less in the literal tones it may seem to convey and more in the fact that it teaches a relational continuum among all beings. Further it indicates that something positive, some goodness, came to you through your prior relationships with all beings.
Aside from whether or not your mind believes that all beings were your previous mothers, thinking in this way is - at the very least - helpful for remembering that goodness has always been a part of your physical journey. All sentient beings came into manifestation on a flow of goodness and wisdom; this is the only way that consciousness can find and adopt physical form.
Call yourself to progressively higher mental states of cultivated neutrality. In so doing, you will discover that your serenity level will manifest in fortresslike protection for your precious mind. Look for goodness arising in virtually every experience that greets you, no matter how fleeting or transient. Then, and most importantly, step into a field of gratitude that transcends the ego's narcissistic realm. To the degree that you can see all people, all experiences, and all arising situations through the eyes of neutrality. Look for the goodness arising in each to meet your awareness, and then appreciate it.
