E-Vichara (November 12, 2018) — — Large Heart, small conflict

  • The human brain has ~ 90,000,000,000 neurons directing how we act, directing how we react — what science is unable to measure is how the complexity of this wiring becomes exponentially more due to the volatility of the ego
  • The highest expression of responsible living is harmonious living — loving oneself, one never harms others
  • The 1st step to being large hearted with people is Pray — prayer quietens the mind creating space to understand oneself and others
  • The 2nd step to being large hearted with people is Lead — we learn more through our eyes than our ears and by remembering one’s blessings being energetic/enthusiastic is easier
  • The 3rd step to being large hearted with people is Engage — every person is different and by communing we strive to be more interesting, to be less irritating
  • The 4th step to being large hearted with people is Accept — living is hard hence our mistakes, accepting which we forgive ourselves an others
