Now I want to talk about Ahimsa. I like Ahimsa.
I want to share with everybody that my current thought is that it is in Ahimsa that one develops love. It is not in willing your mind to love someone – more often that not we are lying to ourselves. And for love to be pure it has to come from the heart.
It is Ahimsa that works. That’s why I like Ahimsa.
So what is Ahimsa about? It is translated to non-violence. It must be applied to one’s thought, word and deed. The magic is in applying Ahimsa to one’s words. The trick is to replace negative thoughts with thoughts of love and forgiveness. From this, then I think, we would see our transformation to ‘love of all’.
