In the recent San Bernardino shootings, the swift action of law enforcement officers and personnel is a text book heroic act. Our Salutes to these Brave women and men. Innocent lives were lost (our Prayers to their families) but the law enforcement prevented further damage and saved lives. It is the pinnacle of giving…giving themselves, putting their chests on the frontline to save the innocent, and, at the same time under such dire circumstances, fearlessly consoling the affected people in distress and fear. Such act of selfless giving showers immense blessings from the Universe.
During our Yoga practice, my teacher once said these beautiful words about blessings, “Anything with weight, you can’t take it with you to the other world. That means money can’t be taken since it has weight. Blessings have no weight and you can carry that with you forever.” Blessings happen when you give.
Saints of the past, from all parts of the world, advised us to give: give a drop and get the shower of blessings from the Divine. The more we give something, the more we receive that — magnified several times. Such is the compassion of the Divine.
Let’s express our Gratitude to our Brave Hearts on duty — military, law enforcement, fire, paramedics, emergency — making us feel secure and protecting us day in, day out, 24 hours a day, everyday, all year, all the time!!
