Blog Your Blessings Sunday
Many tropical birds fly, live, and visit our property on Maui, and we are blessed by their visitations. Yesterday this beautiful white egret walked around our yard blessing us with it's presence. I've seen egrets before, and they favor the Eastern side of our property.
Birds are often symbols of the Holy Spirit--and especially white birds with the white dove being the most famous.
Later in the day we visited the Heart Shrine Relic Tour and were blessed by the relics and Lama Gyalsten of the Maui Dharma Center. If you'd like to view photos of these precious relics, I will be placing a slide show on another of my blogs, Who's Yo Mama.
The Four Immeasurables Prayer
"May all sentient beings enjoy happiness and the causes of happiness;
May they be free from suffering and the causes of suffering;
May they never be separated from the great happiness devoid of suffering;
And may they dwell in the great equanimity that is free from attachment and aversion."
