Morning mediation - The most valuable gift we can give.
Steven Gaskin said that in the last analysis the only thing we have to give another human being is our own state of being.
In our materialistic world we forget that fact if we every realized it.
Back in the 60s we used to describe people has having good vibs or bad vibs.
How does one develop oneself so that one exudes good vibes?
I had a client one time who had been through two terrible marriages and I asked him if he would ever get married again. He said he would if could find the right woman. I asked him who the right woman would be and he said something that stunned me. He said simply, "She would have to be woman who is happy with herself." My cynical thought which I didn't utter was, "Are there any?"
And then to be fair and not sexist, I think a woman could have said the same thing to me, "Yes, I would get married again, if I could find a man who is happy with himself."
And so at this season of gift giving and peace on earth and well wishing it does come down to the basic fact that the most precious and valuable thing we have to give others is our own state of being.
What condition is your condition in?
