This energy helps us enjoy what is happening</p><p>right now. Mindful energy can bring us a lot of joy. It helps us suffer</p><p>less and learn from our suffering. A good way to get some mindful</p><p>energy is to close your eyes and breathe easily. Just pay attention to</p><p>your breath. If you can enjoy your in-breath and out-breath, you are</p><p>creating mindful energy.</p><p>Yes. Nothing is something. You have an </p><p>idea in your head of nothing. You have an idea in</p><p>your head of something. Both are things that can</p><p>create either suffering or happiness.</p><p>SHAMBHALA SUN SepteMBer 2014 SHAMBHALA SUN SepteMBer 2014 3938</p></li><li><p>Sometimes the people around you are distracted and may </p><p>forget to express their love. But if you feel like no one loves you,</p><p>you can always look outside at the natural world. Do you see a </p><p>tree out there? That tree loves you. It offers its beauty and</p><p>freshness to you and gives you oxygen so you can breathe. The</p><p>Earth loves you, offering you fresh water and delicious fruit for </p><p>you to eat. The world expresses</p><p>its love in many ways, not</p><p>just with words.</p><p>To love is to discover. If you keep on </p><p>loving another person, you will keep</p><p>discovering wonderful things about that</p><p>person. You can enjoy the differences</p><p>because it would be boring if everyone </p><p>were the same. Even if the other person</p><p>has a quality that doesnt seem lovable,</p><p>you can practice loving that person </p><p>anyway, just as they are, and not how</p><p>you wish they were.</p><p>SHAMBHALA SUN SepteMBer 2014 41</p></li><li><p>Were pleased to offer you this article from the new issue of Shambhala Sun magazine. </p><p>Like what you see?
