“May their negative actions ripen upon me
And may all my virtues ripen upon them.”
A great (Buddhist) reminder to see the negative, bitter, unpleasant…actions of others and situations as an opportunity to learn, grow, strengthen our own wisdom and virtues, develop deeper compassion and patience.
And to always react positively, compassionately, lovingly, patiently…and hope that it inspires others.
Even if we don’t always act or react in a positive way, any occasion that we do is great.
Any situation that is unpleasant can teach and remind us. Every moment we act in love even if it’s just holding our tongues instead of lashing out, is planting seeds so in the future we will be more patient and loving.
And we never know who we are inspiring with our love!
Instead of letting unpleasant circumstances drag us down, allow them to inspire us, teach us, remind us, help us build and strengthen our virtues while inspiring others. ❤
I hope you are having a beautiful day or night wherever in the world you are! It's a beautiful, cool, Spring night here in Philadelphia – USA! 😀
Much love & light to you, always,
