Circle of Support
Getting situated in my chair, I became aware of my heart center. Breathing in and out from my heart, I gave myself loving awareness. Beginning to reminisce on where I find myself in this moment, people from my past and present began to appear in front of me. As I continued to listen, more people that I hadn’t thought of in years began to appear. As we all began to congregate, I was reminded of their words of encouragement, words of kindness and words of wisdom they had all given me. As I bowed to them in appreciation, I felt an immense sense of gratitude, love, joy and happiness fill my heart.
As we held hands, I began to recite a metta, or loving kindness mantra to them. As I said these words to them, I saw their eyes light up and I could feel my eyes light up as well. After I recited these words, I bowed to them in appreciation once again. To my surprise, they bowed back to me in appreciation, raising my sense of gratitude, love, joy and happiness that I felt in my heart. It was in that moment that I realized that these people didn’t just help to shape me, but I had helped to shape them as well. Because we had helped to shape each other, I now realized that this circle of support wasn’t just created for me or for them, but in fact, it was created for the B.O.M.! Having this newfound realization wash over me, I felt an immense connection with all of life! With a big smile on my face, I bowed in appreciation one last time to recognize the circle of support for all of life. Namaste 🙏🏻⭕️☮️❤️
