Pure, Peaceful, Kind

Pure. Peaceful. Kind. I have lately been using these three words as a type of mantra or parikamma to remind myself how I want the mind and heart to be disposed throughout the course of the day. In a way it is almost as if I am working backwards from the result and into the perceptions and practices that I can do in the present that will bring about the peace, purity and loving acceptance that I wish to embody.

What is perhaps most interesting about this is that I had begun doing something very similar already but was further encouraged to continue in this direction by the impromptu Dhamma talk govern by the Venerable Saddhasara last Saturday. So, may I do my best to keep my mind pure,  peaceful and full of love today by using whatever skillful means ate necessary.
