Day 19: Every time you smile it is an action of love ~ Mother Theresa

Day 19: Every smile is an action of love(Mother Theresa)

Music from Journey through the Matrix by Harry Massey & David Gibson

Become a Smiler to spread joy and love in the world!

Touched by the sadness or suffering of others makes us want to do something, we want to take action, to help. But with so many global problems needing immediate attention, where do we begin? How can we make a difference in a world so plagued by chaos or calamity?

It begins with bringing more love to our immediate surroundings. The greater the presence of love in the world, the greater the chances that those who perpetuate wrong action will switch sides.

Some research shows that when a small percentage of a population focuses on peace and harmony the violence and crime rates drop. By getting into the vibration of love and compassion we can influence the energy of our communities and maybe even our nation.

In addition to practicing this compassion meditation with people around the world, you can take small measures yourself to bring more love to the world.

So, become a Smiler and spread the love.  😆

Every time you smile at someone it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. ~ Mother Theresa



Begin today’s meditation by taking five deep, slow breaths. Breathe in through your nose slowly to the count of 6, hold your breath for 2 counts, and exhale slowly to the count of 6. Do this for a total of 5 breaths.

With your hands resting on your lap, or on your heart if you wish, recite the loving kindness phrases and really try to generate the feelings of kindness, friendliness and compassion. Starting with yourself, say:

 May I be free from suffering. May I be peaceful and truly happy. May I be well in body, mind and heart. May I live with ease.

As you feel the warmth coming from your heart, a sincere desire that you not suffer, see if you can extend that feeling to someone you care about. Imagine a dear friend or loved one and repeat the phrases:

May you be free from suffering. May you be peaceful and truly happy. May you be well in body, mind and heart. May you live with ease.

Finally, as you bask in these wonderful feelings of kindness and compassion, extend the wish to all beings on the planet.

Spend a few minutes allowing this wave of loving kindness to swirl around you and radiate out from you.

Take this feeling of connectedness  with you throughout your day. Always remembering that you, too, are worthy of a life free from suffering, full of peace and true happiness.

May you be free from suffering. May you be peaceful and truly happy. May you be well in body, mind and heart. May you live with ease.

With love,
