We Are All Relatives!

“We are born and reborn countless number of times, and it is possible that each being has been our parent at one time or another.  Therefore, it is likely that all beings in this universe have familial connections.”

~ H. H. Dalai Lama, from ‘The Path to Tranquility: Daily Wisdom”
In this world of relativity, we are all relatives.
~ Ron Rattner, Sutra Sayings
“For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven
 is my brother and sister and mother.”

~ Matthew 12:50

In this wonderful world of relativity,

We are all relatives.

We are all connected and kin,

With our precious planet,
and all Life therein.

We all belong here,
as we all long here –

For everlasting LOVE.

So as ONE earth-life family,
let us live our lives with LOVE

As the Kin-dom of Heaven,
Blessed on Earth, as it is Above.

One Response to We Are All Relatives!

    Here’s a fun synchronicity…
    Last night I decided to start reading “An Open Heart: Practicing Compassion in Everyday Life – The Dalai Lama” Edited by Nicholas Vreeland

    I opened to a random page about Bodhicitta or the aspiration to attain a state where our sense of compassion is at a level where we feel responsible for all beings and we are motivated to perfect our ability to serve them.

    The Dalai Lama said here: “According to the Buddhist view, we have been going through the cycle of life and death for far longer than our planet has existed. OUr past lives are therefore infinite, as are the beings who have given birth to us. Thus, the first cause bringing about bodhicitta is the recognition that all beings have been our mother.”

    I found this so fascinating that I read it out loud to Shannon… Yay Synchronicity!
