Maitri for all

Will to live…

Our ancestors had a strong will to live and that will continued to live through us. When we look deeply into our bodies and minds, we see how much they wanted to live on this planet. We don’t have to be a god to be eternal or produce progeny to continue our will to live. As long as we are supporting any being’s will to live, as long as we make our younger generation feel that life is worth living and that this planet is habitable and there is harmony and peace, we continue to live in others. When we truly understand our own will to live, we see how much Mother Earth, way before our ancestors, wanted to live through us. She doesn’t want us to fight and kill each other.

When we truly understand our own will to live and our own aversion towards pain and suffering, we will not deprive any being — its will to live. We will do everything to alleviate the pain of all beings and this awakening is enlightenment itself~
