all-inclusive love

I tried to stop the mind from thinking.

What a joke!

As if I could stop the sun from shining.

These two are powerful forces of nature.

Neither good nor bad,

And often quite helpful.

When the mind is not,

The best I can do

Is to find some shade

Under the branches of mindful presence

And all-inclusive Love.

How do you move 7 billion people to Love?

You put them on a blue marble in the center of your heart, and rotate the marble so that everyone gets a turn.

At least, that is how the Divine does it.
