I was in Montana last week at the Feathered Pipe Ranch for a yoga retreat with my aunt Judith Hanson Lasater. She taught the very first retreat there exactly 40 years ago. It was 6 full days of learning and wisdom, friendship and connection. One of the (MANY) life altering ideas discussed throughout the week was "Treat Everyone like the Buddha."
What would happen if we showed the same love, kindness, and respect to everyone as we would to the Buddha, God, or other chosen Deity? We are all One, all connected by the same life force within, your breath is the same as my breath. Allow this idea to settle into your deepest Self and observe the changes that occur. Live from your highest values and you will create a world you want to live in. Be KIND to everyone.
