If a notion arises to do something for your community and this is not normal for you, consider the following:
Thoughts will arise one after the other as to why you shouldn’t or can’t.
This is how all our lives are ordered.
Notions of the heart arising out of pure unadulterated compassion arise.
Think of them as gentle friendly souls arriving on your door step.
Think of the thoughts as thieves and thugs stepping in front of these gentle souls and evening pushing them to the back of the line.
Throughout your life if you really look deeply this pattern recurs with frightening frequency. Yet we rarely recognize the pattern.
If you are completely aware from moment to moment, you will begin to recognize notions of compassion and the thugs who soon arise thereafter to steal away special joys of life that were especially gifted to you.
Be extraordinary, sharpen your awareness, recognize, reach out and embrace your friendly souls who come to visit from time to time and keep the thugs away from your front door.
