Being yourself. Being yourself in an unaware manner is what meditating like Christ means to me. When you continue to be aware of yourself and be unafraid of what you might find, you sustain an unchanging love. There is no one time I can think of where I lost myself in love. When I read about the Dalai Lama, Gandhi, or St. Francis of Assisi, I notice people who are often lost in love. One's being the change one wishes to make is often loving. As St. Francis said: "Seek not so much to be consoled as to console, to be understood, as to understand, to be loved, as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born." it seems that Christ and the Buddha, being highly aware each moment, allowed themselves to die and be reborn each moment. Dying and being born in each moment in the matter of the Buddha and Christ is like being one with everyone and everything, and it is like not dying because one is so connected to everyone and everything that there is no separate one to die. Thanks for the opportunity to respond. Warm and kind regards to everyone. After reading Kristin's beautiful statement, Hugs to Kristin and all readers.
