Trusting The Universe.

Trusting The Universe.

Kwan Yin, Goddess of Mercy and Compassion.

Channeled by Adele Arini.

March 15th, 2020.

 
.

 

 
Beloved brothers and sisters,
 
This is, Kwan Yin, your Sister in Love.
 
Adele is channeling for & communicating with me for the very first time in this particular lifetime and we are in the middle of getting wonderfully reconnected once more.
 
For those of you here who do not know who I am, I am known by many in the spiritual circle as an Ascended Master who represents the Divine Feminine; a soul who represents the following benevolent, loving, God-virtues of: Mercy and Compassion.
 
With the last powerful message from Sananda (titled: ‘How to create miracles – Part 1’), there is a need to balance His Divine Masculine energies, with my own – so that Harmony is achieved once more.

 
Members of Adele’s previous groups had learnt that I am a member of the Karmic Board; in charge of overseeing the evolutionary developments of ALL embodied souls currently on Earth. And as such, there are many things that I would like to share with all of you here today.
 
Now that Earth has recently crossed the threshold of the 5th Dimension, it is important for all of you to learn, right now, how to operate in the new ‘operating system’ your planet has adopted. Complete adherence to Divine Cosmic Laws is therefore a must, for chelas who are serious and committed to successfully Ascending in this lifetime.
 
Much of what is currently happening on planet Earth right now, is caused by a greater movement that we, your higher-dimensional friends, would classify as the ‘Re-balancing of Karma’. The world is in for many big surprises, loved ones.
 
Shocking revelations will soon be the norm, and, there will be many breakdowns of long-established organizations, groups, beliefs/programmings, power structures, that may potentially create chaos, confusion, fear or unease.
 
It is time for all of you to ‘hold on to your seats’ and prepare yourselves even more thoroughly, as things are going to get ‘interesting’.
 
You need to look at these future events, never from the perspective of fear, instead, simply adopt the naturally Harmonious/Calm/Peaceful attitude that is your Higher Self.
 
There is a magnificent, God-Spark within your Higher Heart chakra, that is (secretly perhaps, *laughed) completely enjoying & loving every single minute of this thrilling journey you are on!
 
Your I AM Presence perfectly knows, that you are in for a very fun roller-coaster ride!
 
Is there anyone here who has never been on a real roller-coaster ride before?
When you have chosen to go on this ride (perhaps to tag along with your friends/loved ones) to experience how it feels, how the ride will go, will completely depend on your attitude going into it.
 
If you go into it filled with excitement and anticipation – fully knowing the course that lies ahead will be full of ups and downs, sometimes you will be veering to the left, sometimes the right; all done in frighteningly high speed – the ride will truly become a very thrilling, amazing ride of your life! You will know without a doubt, although at times it can be a bit scary, it is also a completely safe experience that will be over soon enough, and there is nothing left to do except for you to focus on simply: enjoying the experience!
 
However loved ones, if you were to go into the ride, filled with overwhelming fear or dread – trust me when I say that every single moment of that ride will feel excruciating to you. Whilst you are riding the roller coaster, the entire journey will feel as though it is never-ending.
Your senses will be giving you all sorts of alarms (physical, mental and emotional), coming from the adrenaline rush secreted by your stress hormones – when you are in the middle of this nerve-racking ride. The people around you who had chosen to go on the same ride will often be screaming loudly; adding to your stress and elevating your blood pressure to potentially dangerous levels.
During the ride, you may even question your sanity, for having chosen to go on this ride in the first place, and you may even come to regret having made this decision.
 
And when the ride is over, we often observed that this second group of people would usually feel extremely ill from the entire experience. They would usually suffer from adverse physical side effects that no one ever wished to have. These people were not ready to have a roller-coaster life experience, and yet, they had forced themselves to do so, completely ignoring their initial instincts.
 
You have to realize dear friends, that people do not (normally) choose to ride on roller coasters all the time, every day, 365 days a year. Most adults may go on it, on average, maybe just once in a lifetime (from our observation coming from the entire human collective). They would go on a roller coaster ride just for the thrill; the rush, and once it was experienced, most would choose not to go on it again.
 
And in much the same way, living on an Ascending planet will soon feel similar to going on this roller coaster ride.
 
You are already here. That means pre-birth you had chosen to be here, precisely because you wished to go on this amazing ride.
 
Your attitude and perspective when the ride is about to start, will determine whether or not this adventure will be a thrilling, enjoyable ride that you will always treasure the memory of, or, a scary, completely terrifying ride that will leave you feeling so misaligned with your Higher Self, during the entire experience.
 
Younger souls now embodied on planet, who are ascending (from lower to higher dimensions) for the very first time, make up approximately 50% of the ascending Human Collective. The other 50% are highly-evolved souls who have gone through the process of descending and ascending for too many times to count, as part of their loving service to Source; to ALL in existence.
 
However, in general, once a soul has successfully experienced Ascension, this soul will usually proceed to choose higher dimensional existences, more often than not – evolving even higher up the dimensional ladder.
This means loved ones, the majority of members of higher dimensional civilizations out there in this Universe, had gone through the thrill; the rush of Ascension process (from lower to higher dimensions) only once. And once they did, most would not choose to do it again, as once was challenging enough.
 
All of you here reading this message today, came from the group of souls who had felt highly excited and completely ready about participating in this thrilling Ascension ride.
 
You came into your physical body, with great anticipation of everything that you are about to experience from this rare opportunity that had been granted to you! You are all here to bring about greater soul expansion and growth for Self, and many came equipped with individual missions to help a great number of embodied souls so they can successfully ascend.
 
This means beloved friends, whenever things are getting too challenging and the world may even feel like it is going completely out of control, you need to simply tune in to the ever-peaceful, ever-serene, all confident, all powerful God-Self that lives within you to successfully ‘tune out’ all the fears; all the stress and anxiety engulfing the entire planet.
 
This is a simple matter of energetic frequency, beloved hearts.
 
Tuning in to the energy of Peace vs. tuning in to the energy of Fear/Chaos, is as simple as grabbing a remote control, and changing the channel on your TV, or on your radio.
 
Do you wish to tune in to the super-loud, broadcast of Fear on the 3D ‘TV’ channel, or, the super peaceful, amazing, enjoyable, fun, memorable broadcast of Love, Magic, Miracles and Mastery on the 5D ‘TV’ channel?
 
For when you are watching the Fear-based TV channel, you cannot be simultaneously watching the Love-based TV channel as well, in your ways of Be-ing.
 
In much the same way, when you choose to adopt a higher consciousness of Love, Light, Harmony, Mastery, Magic & Miracles, you are perfectly blocking out your ‘TV channel ‘to everything that is of the polar opposite energetic frequencies.
 
All that is lower vibrational will be naturally, automatically repelled off of you as you only attract people, circumstances, events, that mirror your attained, higher vibrational nature.
 
Adele and many members of her previous groups had done very fun exercises together.
Back then, she was teaching her members how to channel.
Adele provided them with 10 exercises where they needed to access their intuition and open up their communication channels with their Higher Selves/spirit teams. As most of her members were, at that moment, still in the process of mastering their natural channeling abilities, all of them got most of their answers wrong.
 
However, there was a powerful realization to be had, from this very much successful experience!
 
The members had personally felt and experienced (remember, that true learning can only come about through firsthand, real-life experiences) how powerful the thoughts, the emotions, and the actions were, coming from the groups’ collective!
 
Within the small setting of Adele’s groups, everyone observed that most of the time, the answers they got were wrong, however, the key to remember here is: the majority actually got the same wrong answers. This means that everyone in the groups participating in these exercises, was energetically tuning into each other’s vibrations, subconsciously influencing each other’s choices, that then resulted in them choosing mostly the same wrong answers.
 
Everyone learned through direct experience how powerful the vibrations coming from the Collective truly are, in influencing their own decision-making processes.
 
If a group of approximately only 10 people could powerfully affect each other that much, imagine how a massive group of approximately 7 bilions people on Planet Earth are constantly influencing your vibrations, every day.
 
And if the entire Human Collective were to undergo massive, even shocking, life-changing experiences that will change the life of ALL in existence, (such as the current pandemic), how are you going to successfully handle that with grace and ease?
 
What are your plans, so that you don’t get swept up in the ‘craze’; in the possible chaos, panic or disorder, that the Ascension process may soon bring?
 
We are not trying to scare you here, loved ones.
 
We (your higher dimensional friends) will of course be doing our very best to ensure that the future timeline the Human Collective will end up choosing will be the safest, the least rocky, the most peaceful, and the brightest path filled wit ease and grace.
 
However, our well-meaning and caring intentions alone are definitely not enough.
 
We need your active collaboration, since we are not the ones in physicality, going through this ascension process right now. We need you to choose this most favorable future timeline, and thus, we need you to actively, and consistently act as our powerful Light-Love, Love-Light agents on the ground.
 
Thus effectively creating and manifesting this most favorable timeline for yourselves!
 
We need you, our Light-workers – leaders of the Ascension movement – to powerfully, and continuously broadcast Love, Peace, Light, Miracles, Magic, Mastery & Oneness on your own individual 5D Channel, 24/7!
So that more and more ascending souls, within the Human Collective, can easily tune in to your powerful 5D Channel, instead of the other one!
 
For there is nothing more powerful than the energies of Love, Peace, Harmony & Oneness combined.
 
Beloved Adele had just created and manifested her first two miracles today. She had successfully gone over from just thinking and believing with all her heart that she is God, to actually: be-ing the God I AM. This breakthrough came after walking past a certain invisible threshold where all the hard work she had done thus far, had borne a set of two fruits, in her Cornucopia basket! And with this proof of real-life success, her confidence levels in being able to easily create miracles had now shot through the roof!
 
She had come to a profound realization that everything Sananda had taught all of you here, in that last message about creating miracles, was nothing but the highest Truth – perfect, golden information; Light-coded only for those who are ready to devotedly apply the 5 Fundamental Rules consistently in their lives!
 
Nothing will hold her back now. Just like nothing will be holding you back after you also arrive at the state of realisation/higher consciousness required, to successfully create and manifest your own miracles!
 
We have said often recently that the very air you are breathing in right now, is currently magnificently ‘charged’ with the energy of miracles, and, with the overflowing abundance of every good thing physical life on Earth has to offer.
 
The question now becomes, ‘are you now tuned in to this Abundance Channel, loved ones, or, its polar-opposite Channel?’
 
Full comprehension, thorough understanding and, easy practical application of the 5 rules Sananda had mentioned, will soon come easily enough for all of you here.
Practice makes perfect.
 
Adele’s miraculous manifestation experiences, can be likened to the following parable:
 
There once lived a blind man. He had been blind since birth and had never lived to see the sky, sun, trees, ocean or flowers. He was always surrounded by people who tried their best to describe to him, all the glorious beauty of Mother Earth that he had never gotten to see.
 
And then, one day, he encountered a wise guru. This guru, with his overflowing love and compassion, decided to grant the blind man’s request and helped to perfectly heal his eyes.
 
Now that this blind man could finally see for himself all the majestic splendor of Nature, he came to a powerful realization that everything that people had previously told him about Gaia’s bounty was true!
 
Now that the heavy frustration of not being able to see was permanently gone, he realized that his blindness i.e. his lack of sight, and, his lack of real-life experiences of being able to see the beauty himself, had rendered him completely unable to fully trust, nor fully comprehend, the words and descriptions of Gaia’s splendor those people had kindly shared with him in their stories.
 
After all, seeing is believing isn’t it?
 
Or more accurately, personally experiencing such splendor himself, is believing.
 
Such is the case for all of you here reading this today. You need to personally experience a ‘breakthrough’ in your understanding. You are now fully equipped & ready for such a breakthrough yourself – if you had read Sananda’s last message – to then truly be the God I AM that you already are, experientially.
 
Ask your Higher Self to guide and help you in understanding what pieces of your jigsaw puzzles are still missing. Sometimes the Truth can be staring right at you, in full view of someone else and you maybe completely missing it, due to any existing blinders still set in place; ultimately blocking you from ever seeing the Truth.
 
Loved ones, it is time for you to trust your Higher Self – the God I AM within – all the more fully.
 
Trusting your Higher Self is equivalent to trusting the Universe to always provide you with all that you need.
 
As the Universe is simply a vast playground, within the Kingdom of Heaven, that your own I AM knows inside out.
 
Earth has always been in Heaven, and Heaven has always been on Earth, but the majority of Human Collective had been blind to this Higher Truth that has always been staring at them in the face.
 
The very first step to mastering the Art of Creating Miracles is: to learn how to relax and be constantly at peace, and, in constant harmony with ALL in existence.
 
You must be able to feel the Cosmic Peace that passeth the understanding of the human mind – the Peace that can only be felt in your heart and in every part of your body. Even, or, most especially when life (i.e. the people/world around you) is very determined to bring you down to a lower-vibrational state of being, on a daily basis.
 
Isn’t now the perfect, literally Heaven-sent, opportunity for all of you to display your mastery, dear ones?
 
Only in times of great chaos/adversity, the heroes in many of your fictional/real-life stories, were then ‘forced’ by circumstances to display their great strength, valour and wisdom -> to ‘win the game’ and, come out victorious over all of the limiting conditions they had found themselves in.
 
When the energies of Cosmic Peace & Harmony are permanently attained within you; when complete trust and acceptance of your Divine Birthright become second nature to you; when Love has become your Way of Life, that is when your Cornucopia will be overflowing with God’s miraculous gifts that are perfect just for you.
 
Remain calm, loving, joyful, patient, and always be compassionate, beloved Masters.
For most of you here reading this, maintaining this higher-vibrational state of being has now become so easy and effortless; so second-nature.
 
You, loved ones, are the ones currently holding the space; allowing for humanity’s great Awakening & Purification phase to occur with greater ease and grace.
 
You are our living & breathing 5D portals – vibrationally guiding ALL ascending souls on Earth so that they can successfully complete their own journeys back Home.
 
Home to the God-Self, and, the Heaven within.
 
With all our love & devotion,
 
Kwan Yin
Adele Arini.

How Can We Strengthen Love And Relationships In Tough Planetary Times?

By Guest Writer Issy Lovett.

prepareforchange.net/.

Posted January 11, 2020 by Edward Morgan.

 
.

 

 
Life-changing world events that occurred in 2019, including natural disasters (think the Alabama Tornado), shootings in schools, and terrorist attacks across the globe, have placed many people across the globe in ‘fight or flight’ mode. Indeed, according to a Gallup poll, in a country like the U.S., around 55% of people say they experience stress frequently throughout the day, and one of the top sources of stress is worry about the political situation/the state of the nation. At the same time, the millennial generation, which will soon be the largest population group in many parts of the world, is counteracting tension, segregation and hatred with love. As found by Harvard scientists Professors Casper ter Kuille and Angie Thurston, millennials may be turning away from organized religions, but they are keener than ever on feeling like part of something larger than themselves. Spirituality, for them, is the bridge that leads to planetary union, but it is just one of many means to reach a place of love and unity, despite the disparate and violent forces that threaten their health and happiness.
 

Self-Love Is Guilt-Free In The New Millennium

When Whitney Houston sang that “learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all,” she pointed to what were only the beginnings of the movement of self-compassion that is so important if we are to give our best selves to others and survive the sometimes-hostile world. A Duke University study, published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, found that your ability to survive tough events (think hostile world, and local and personal events) depends directly on how kindly you treat yourself. “Self-compassion helps to eliminate a lot of the anger, depression and pain we experience when things go badly,” said Mark R Leary, lead researcher. 
 

What Does Self-Compassion Involve?

Self-compassion rests on three main pillars: understanding instead of criticizing yourself, common humanity (understanding that you are part of this great planet) and mindful acceptance (recognizing and accepting difficult feelings and ‘riding through them’, knowing they are not permanent and they do not define you. Self-compassion helps you react less strongly to hostility, to accept responsibility where it is due, and to buffer yourself against negative events. When you are self-compassionate, your happiness does not depend on specific outcomes or achievements.
 

Unexpected Connections

Once you feel happy within your own skin and you have mastered the art of self-acceptance, it is time to bring your most loving, supportive self to others. The Harvard scientists mentioned above report that millennials are finding rich, meaningful connections in very different places than their parents or grandparents used to. Professor ter Kuille has conducted extensive research into millennial spirituality, finding that “Two-thirds believe in God or a universal spirit, and one in five even pray every day.” What has changed isn’t necessarily belief. Rather, it is where people congregate. Today, millennials are consistently “creating new forms of community that fulfil the role that traditional churches used to.” His findings indicate that one vital way to counteract planetary division, negativity and violence, is to create communities based on support, union and love. There are many ways that you can do this; one way is by starting up a group centered around your hobby. Whether stress-busting nature walks, intense hot yoga sessions, or upbeat spin classes are your thing, take time to stop and talk to the people you see regularly in class. Find out who they are and why they are there; see what you have in common and support and encourage them to do their best. Little by little, your little spin class can turn into a friendship group in which each member supports, cares for, and looks forward to seeing, their little ‘family’.
 

Kindness And Those You Already Love

It is, of course, important to share love with those who have always been there for your – your work colleagues, family and old friends. In order to make your gestures truly count, try to speak to them in their chosen ‘love language’. According to best-selling author Gary Chapman, there are five languages in total: acts of service, words of affirmation or appreciation, quality time, touch, and gift-giving. If your loved ones enjoy giving gifts, this does not make them materialistic, since gifts can be small but symbolic. Whatever you do gift others, make sure it is meaningful. If you have an upcoming anniversary, for instance, show your spouse or partner you care by looking up the list of wedding gifts by year. These indicate that the first year is paper, the third is leather, the sixth is iron, and so forth. For an iron anniversary present, definitely forego a kitchen pan! Go for something symbolic like a wrought iron heart, a carved flower figure, or a decorative piece that represents the strength of your love.
 

Paying It Forward

Once you are strong within yourself and you have built a loving social circle, you are ready to counter-balance world hostility by making positive changes. The ‘pay it forward’ movement involves doing one kind act to someone you may not necessarily know. The key is that you should give it without return, only asking the recipient to ‘pay it forward’ and exert an act of kindness on somebody else. The ripple effect can be powerful; in fact, it can cause a tidal wave of positive thought and belief systems that inspire the kind of change the world so desperately needs.
 
The world can be a tough and unforgiving place, but while you are alive, why not make the world better and celebrate yourself and others? It all begins with loving yourself and being non-judgmental. Once you realize that the human condition is common to everyone, you can build and strengthen ties with others. Finally, paying it forward to someone you don’t know but are inexorably united with is the ultimate act of positive change.

Bringing Compassion to Justice: How Would Our World Look if there Was More Compassion and Less Punishment? ~ Thich Nhat Hanh.

Bringing Compassion to Justice:

How Would Our World Look if there Was More Compassion and Less Punishment?

By Thich Nhat Hanh.

Posted May 20, 2019 by Edward Morgan. 

 
.

 

 

I believe that true justice should have compassion in it. When someone does something harmful or destructive, the destruction is done not only to the person who is the victim, but it is also done to the person who has committed the destruction. We all know that every time we say something unskillful, that can damage our relationship to the other person, making him or her suffer, we know that we have also done harm to ourselves, and created suffering for ourselves. That comes from our lack of skillfulness, our lack of mindfulness, and our lack of compassion, and we suffer as the other person suffers. Maybe not right now, but a little bit later we will suffer. The real cause of the action is our ignorance; our lack of skillfulness.
In any kind of relationship there is always a willingness not to make the other person suffer: “Darling, I don’t want to make you suffer.” That is true, but because we are not mindful enough, we do not have the right perception of what things are, and because of the negative habit energy in us, we may do things that cause others to suffer. That is not out of my willingness, because I may have made a vow to make you happy, to make you suffer less. That is why we should try to look into the nature of interbeing to see that we ourselves may be the victims of a collective consciousness, of the transmission of negative seeds by our ancestors or by our parents. If we make others suffer, that is because we are also victims.
Doing harm to others does harm to ourselves
Doing harm to others does harm to ourselves, whether we realise it or not.
So if we know how to look at the so-called criminals, we will have compassion. Society has created them like that; they have not been lucky, they have been born into a situation where social conditions, and their parents and other influences, have created that kind of behavior, and that person is very much the victim of the situation. If we see that, we see the nature of interbeing in that kind of act, we will be able to be compassionate, and the punishment that we propose in that case will be lighter because we want justice. That’s not only understanding; that’s not only compassion — although there is understanding that has brought compassion — but that’s also justice.

The Sea Pirate

Consider a sea pirate who rapes a young girl belonging to the boat people. If you have a gun you can kill him, but you cannot help him. He may have been born to a very poor fisherman along the coast, his father and his grandfather living a very hard life. In order to forget that kind of hardship, it may be that they used to drink in the evening, and they came home late at night. Perhaps the mother of the young man did not know how to read and to write and to give him a good education, and the young boy played with delinquents. When he reached the age of fourteen or fifteen he had to go to sea and help his father in the fishing business. Then when his father passed away he had to continue the business, and his life was very hard. And suddenly someone said, “You only have to make it once. The refugees might bring a little bit of gold with them, so if we stop just one refugee boat and take the gold and their valuables, then we can get out of this situation of chronic poverty. Just one!” The young fisherman agreed, and there on the high sea they caught the boat people, and he saw another person violating a lady. He looked around, and he didn’t see any policemen. So he just said, “I have never tried this. I want to try it once.” And then he became a molester, a rapist.
We are all products of our environments
We are all products of our environments. Often we haven’t learned another way of acting.
If you were on the boat and you had a gun, and you shot him in order to save the girl, you could kill him, but you could not help him. Of course, you would try to do anything in order to save the girl, but if you cannot, you will shoot him. You want the girl to be alive, not to be raped, and the sea pirate not to be shot, but if there is no other way, you might choose to kill him. But he was born into that life, and he has been a victim since he has come to life. Nobody has helped him. Educators, legislators, politicians, businessmen, humanitarians, humanists, no one has helped him, and that is why he is what he is there — he is a victim. If you kill him, you can call it justice, but I think that is less than justice because he has not been helped at all.

We are a Product of Our Circumstances

When I heard news of events such as this, I could not eat. It’s difficult to eat your breakfast when you hear this kind of news, and I had to do walking meditation in the woods in order to digest that kind of hardship. During sitting meditation one night, I saw that if I had been born like that pirate, in the coastal area of Thailand, and I had such a father, such a mother, I would now be a sea pirate. We are products of our society, of our environment, to a very large extent. That’s why looking deeply helps us to understand and to have compassion. With compassion, you can always offer a kind of justice that will contain more patience, understanding, and tolerance.
Suppose someone has killed ten children. Why should he be allowed to live on? Ten people are dead; now you want another one, you want eleven. A person who has killed ten children is a sick person. Of course, we want to lock him up to prevent him from killing more, but that is a sick person, and we have to find ways to help that person. Killing him does not help him, and does not help us. There are others like him in society, and looking at him deeply we know that something is wrong with our society; our society has created people like that. Therefore, looking at him, we can see in the light of interbeing the other elements that have produced him. That is how your understanding arises in yourself, and then you see that that person is there for you to help, and not to punish. Of course, you have to lock him up for the safety of other children, but locking him up is not the only thing you can do. We can do other things to help him. Punishing is not the only thing, we can do much better.
Meditation in prisons has had a positive effect
Some prisons offer meditation and this has had very positive effects.
Recently Buddhist books on meditation, Buddhist magazines, and even Dharma talks have been offered in prisons, and many inmates have been practising accordingly. Several of them have gotten relief, and have been able to live peacefully in prison. I myself get a number of letters from prisoners, and many of them come from prisons in North America — who have read my books. One person said:
Thay, when I stand above the staircase and look down, and see other inmates running up and down, I can see their suffering, their agitation. I hope they can do as I do, walking down and up the staircase in mindfulness, following my breathing. When I do that, I feel peace within myself, and when I feel peace within myself I can see very clearly the suffering of other inmates.
That person has been able to create, to give rise to the compassion within him. You know, when we have compassion in our hearts, we don’t suffer too much. When compassion is there in our hearts, we are not the person who suffers the most.

Making a Difference

There is another prisoner who received a copy of Being Peace, a photocopy, and later on, he got the real book Being Peace, so he had two copies. He had stopped smoking, but he still kept some tobacco. One day, the fellow next to his cell banged on the wall and shouted to ask for some tobacco. Although he did not smoke anymore, he wanted to offer him this tobacco. And he took the first page of Being Peace, and he wrapped some tobacco in it, and sneaked it to the other side, with the hope that the other person might enjoy Being Peace. He himself had enjoyed Being Peace, and had started practicing sitting meditation in his cell. He just gave a small amount of that tobacco, and the next time he used page two, then page three…He was on death row.
Finally, he had transferred the whole set of copied pages to the other prisoner. It was wonderful — the other prisoner began to practice in his cell and became very quiet. In the beginning, he had banged, and shouted, and cursed. But finally he became very subdued and very calm, and he was released. In order to thank the other person, he passed in front of the cell, and they looked at each other, and together they recited one sentence from the book, which they both knew by heart. That prisoner on death row was able to write a whole book on his practice, within his cell, and the book has been published by a publisher outside.
Given the opportunity, everyone has the potential for change
Given the opportunity, everyone has the potential for change.
So it is clear that punishment is not the only thing we can do. There is much more we can do in order to help. Transformation and healing are possible in these difficult situations. Another prisoner wrote to me, saying:
Thay, I am very surprised to find that I can still retain my humanness in prison and that I have not gone mad. That is thanks to the practice. My only hope is that one day when I am released, and someone comes to see me and looks at my face, and says, ‘With the amount of suffering he endured in prison, yet he can look like that…’, that would be wonderful, the greatest reward that I could get.
He said that the conditions in which he lived, the suffering he endured in jail, you could not imagine. But he has managed, in order to survive, to keep his humanness alive through all these difficulties.
If we suffer less outside here and have a little bit of time, of course we can do something to help those inside. That is why killing that person only reveals our weakness. We surrender. We don’t know what to do anymore, and we give up. That is a cry of despair when you have to kill people. I hope that together we can practice looking deeply in order to find better means than to approve of capital punishment. My answer to the question is that not only can we reconcile justice and compassion, but we can also demonstrate that true justice must have compassion and understanding in it.
