Daily Meditation:

It is important to recognize the power of our emotions--and to take responsibility for them by creating a light and positive atmosphere around ourselves. This attitude of joy that we create helps alleviate states of hopelessness, loneliness, and despair. Our relationships with others thus naturally improve, and little by little the whole of society becomes more positive and balanced. - Tarthang Tulku
The effort involved in making ourselves into the positive and joyous people that spread love and light is not an easy task. With the pain and suffering we inflict our negative increases and the move and more it builds that negative becomes more destructive. It continues to feed and grow. Negative pulls more toward it just as positive also attracts positive. When focus is upon the negative and the destructive it is troublesome and hurtful and yet no way is seen out. The walls just continue to grown and the deeper the well becomes. One brick at a time. One movement one dismantling at a time. Tear down the walls of the negative and begin to build the positive. Happiness, growth, joy, peace. Foster these things that help us to be who it is we want to be today. It is a process and setbacks occur. Forgiveness and understanding.
We create the joy that takes us out of despair. Talking and relating and being with others helps to eliminate the loneliness and helplessness we feel. Just a bit at a time. Little by little.
