“Nirvana may be the final object of attainment, but at this moment it’s difficult to reach; thus, the practical and realistic aim is compassion, a warm heart serving other people, helping others, respecting others, and being a little less selfish.”
I like this quotation from the Dalai Lama. It is typical of his brilliant expression in which he simplifies everything because he knows most people can’t relate to holistic philosophical principles. The quotation is about inclusion made practical.
Forget about the abstract philosophical principles of the one and the many, and rather walk where your feet are in a very tangible practical way. Be compassionate of the experience of other human beings and of the suffering in this world, and keep your heart warm and loving. Help, serve and respect other people. Recognize their experience is as valid as yours and, in truth, isn’t everybody doing the best they can?
Through inclusion, it’s easy to respect and honor others. It’s easy to serve others and be compassionate and kind whenever the opportunity presents itself. In these ways we’re a little less selfish, a little less totally completely focused on our own experience, and a little more inclusive of the world around us.
In this quotation, the Dalai Lama reveals himself to be a very wise man. He gets us to be real, to be where our feet are -- based on this principle of inclusion -- which is the very abstract Divine Feminine archetype. He assists us to actualize it and to unify our consciousness and, in the process, we evolve our wholeness and our bliss.
So, as you reflect on the Mother archetype in your experience, keep it simple. Be kind to yourself and kind to everyone and everything that you encounter. Through this actualization of the principle of inclusion, you will indeed be celebrating the Mother archetype and continuing the evolution of your consciousness.
Take a few moments and focus on the truth of who you are and what life is, and love yourself as the embodiment of life. Compassionately love all and everything as embodiments of the same life. In this way actualize and truly celebrate the Mother archetype as inclusion that leads to the experience of oneness — the one in the many.
