Default Compassion
I'm not sure that this is the right place for this topic, but it seems that Karuna, the Universal Compassion is needed for all 6 Lokas, 6 realms of existence (our human is just one of them).
Holy Mantra: OM MA NI PAD ME HUM is consisted of 5 segments, 6 rays of compassion to cover all sentient beings.

Hello MEL Knighthood,

Imagine in one nano second that you are not blessed as you are, forget your name, your shape your gender, your position in society, just be…
Imagine how many people do not have your life opportunities, material and spiritual, but live far beyond your minimal standards of life.
Imagine how many children in this very moment are dying in agony of thirst, hunger, illnesses and the despair and grief of their mothers that cannot protect them.
Imagine how many sick people write now are suffering in all hospitals in the world and those who are not lucky enough to have minimal medical care.
Imagine how many victims of violence are becoming in this very moment and those who suffered from memories of that, committed or experienced on their “skin”, economic, physical, sexual, psychological…..
Imagine how many animals are killed in this very moment to become food, dying in pain and sufferings/.
Imagine countless wandering souls waiting for incarnation in Samsara, suffering from karmic illusions that shine on them, due to their deeds from previous life.
Imagine other sentient beings in Samsara suffering from various mental poisons of greed, attachment, anger, fury jealousy, pride, egotism…
IMAGINE AND FEEL that dark cloud of sufferings.
Compassion will touch your heart, wishing them to be lucky as you are, bright karma, on the way to the enlightenment.

Imagine that you are made of colorless white light and in the middle of your chests is shining sparkling radiant blue light.
Inhale the dark cloud, direct it to the heart, convert it into light, and exhale your rays of light to every sentient being in Samsara.
Do not be afraid, because in that moment, you are Avalokitesvara/Quan Yin, Lord of Compassion, The Boddhisattva Mahasattva, the compassion of all Buddhas.
Look around, countless bodhisattvas are fighting the darkness.

You may say, I’m a dreamer,
But I’m not the only one….

Let the light shine until the end of Samsara.

Love and Light You are,

Vladimir
