Kuan Yin Shares Teachings on Maintaining a Merciful Heart amidst Duality.

Avalokitesvara's release of Light was delivered through David Christopher Lewis messenger for the Ascended Masters.

Kuan Yin known as the Mother of Mercy in the East, has been worshipped by Buddhists for thousands of years. She is the greatest of Bodhisattvas and embodies the totality of compassion for humanity. She removes obstacles, erases past offenses, dispenses mercy, healing and spiritual graces, while always meeting the true inner needs of the soul.

"Hearer of Sounds"

Her shortened Chinese name,  Kuan Yin, means “Hearer of Sounds.” Her full name, Kuan Shih Yin,  means “Hearer of the World’s Sounds.” According to Eastern tradition, when Kuan Yin was about to enter heaven, as she stood on the very threshold, she could hear the cries of humanity. She did not enter but returned to help all who suffer in the earth plane. The term “Hearer of Sounds" can also be translated as “perceiver” or “regarder” of the world’s sounds. She is known in much of Asia as a divine emanation that answers the prayers of those who faithfully call upon her name.

Bodhisattva of Compassion

One of her many titles is Bodhisattva of Compassion. Bodhisattva is a Sanskrit word—bodhi meaning "enlightenment"  and sattva translated as "reality" or "existence." A bodhisattva is an enlightened being who has vowed to forgo higher realms and full liberation in order to assist those still struggling in the physical world. A bodhisattva cultivates virtue and pursues his/her spiritual career while on a path of self-sacrifice for the welfare of others and gives compassionate, loving service to humanity and to all sentient life. A bodhisattva (P’u Sa in Chinese) can be a person still in embodiment or a celestial being like Kuan Yin. At this highest transcendent level, the title is mahasattva.

Kuan Yin Mercy Prayer

Kuan Yin is a cross-cultural, nondenominational figure revered by many spiritual and religious traditions around the world. She serves the aspirants of all spiritual heritages and paths.Those who espouse a concept of an impersonal, formless divinity see her as an expression of the essence of compassion, or as a symbol of it. Others who acknowledge a personal Godhead view her as a divine embodiment of this virtue. Some view her as both the impersonal and personal manifestations of divine compassion, with no contradiction. She nurtures the growth of this quality in us through our devotions and our interpersonal relationships with others.

Missives of Mercy from My Heart
#10


1.     Mercy provides even the most hardened of hearts with perfect excuses to show love and compassion.

2.     Mercy's day often revolves around observing the most uncaring and matching them with those who require the greatest care.

3.     You may only fully know God's heart after you have meditated upon the God Light within and shown unmitigated mercy toward your worst enemy.

4.     The fire within God's heart is the purest of mercy lights.

5.     O beautiful Mercy, how I love thee all through the day, all through the night!

6.     Mercy comes to sing nightly to enemies of love, though they often hear only in their dreams.

7.     Mercy is love in its most feminine expression.

8.     I envision a new police force of mercy, urging on TLC within every neighborhood, village and city.

9.     The primary components of mercy are purity of motive and unadulterated love.

10.  Your feeling world may become a paradise of mercy to Earth's children.

11.  The prerequisite to being an employee of Mercy is largesse of heart through givingness.

12.  I am the victory of compassionate mercy in all my affairs and challenges.

David:  Today Kuan Yin invites you to share what comes to you when you hear these Missives of Mercy. So I will repeat them twice and then you can comment.

Commentary:

                                                                Compassionate Mercy

                                    The Karmic Board and the Wise and Judicious Use of Mercy


1.  Mercy provides even the most hardened of hearts with perfect excuses to show love and compassion.

Response:  It reminds me of the concept that mercy endures forever, because Mercy never gives up trying to reach those hearts.

Response:  I've watched the hardness of my own heart soften through these missives and through all that the Buddhas have introduced through this Hearts Center, this ongoingness of release of tenderness and caring and unconditional grace and love. So I know, as I've seen it happen in myself, and I can witness to it and imagine it happening in others all over the globe.

2.  Mercy's day often revolves around observing the most uncaring and matching them with those who require the greatest care.

Response:  Something that came to me with this one is that sometimes you see situations where perhaps a child is born with a certain problem to parents who need to expand their hearts with greater love. I think this is God's mercy to help that soul to grow and to be able to love more and that sometimes it's the volunteering of that soul to come to help those individuals to love more and have more compassion.

Response:  It reminds me of my mother in situations that were most, most difficult. She always, always found something beautiful to say to bring someone up no matter how bad things were, or in the worst of the worst scenarios. She always could pour out something to bring someone or something up higher.

Response:  I would like to say that it takes a lot of consciousness and awareness to be in one's heart or to be centered, because it's so easy to be caught up in the vortex of others, of their caring or uncaring. So it takes that beingness of presence to introduce the higher law of love.

Response:  In this one, mercy really is opportunity, and mercy and justice, to me, become one, because it's giving the soul the opportunity to balance karma by bringing out that mercy. And it's also the faith, the faith of the masters in us, that there is the kernel of God in each of us that can be expanded.

David:  She says that this matching, this observing and matching, is not just between two separate people, but it occurs within you. So the most uncaring parts of yourself are matched, in a sense, with that within you that needs the greatest care. This is an interesting concept to meditate upon and to realize how God has provided you with a way to resolve all.

3.  You may only fully know God's heart after you have meditated upon the God Light within and shown unmitigated mercy toward your worst enemy.

Response:  I think of “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”1

David:  In that moment Jesus entered the very heart of the Father.

Response:  I thought of Jesus' words “Turn the other cheek.” And I saw it as not only just physically turning your cheek in the conventional sense or physical sense, but the ability to turn toward the sense of the immaculate concept that you hold for everyone in the way that we're all encouraged to do. So turning the cheek is perhaps turning away from your first reaction or that unconscious programming and turning or dialing up to the conscious sense of the admonition to love your enemy.

Response:  For me, if you have someone that's always there and you always perceive this person as your enemy, like an ex-spouse—that's what I was thinking—until you go deep within and love so intensely, you can't get out of it. It won't go away until you really go in and do everything you can. This is my experience, to love no matter what. And most likely it's karmic, something you did a long time ago. You may have chopped someone's head off or caused something really bad, and that person is going to be there until you get it resolved. I mean, that's what I went through. You can't get away from it. You can't. You just have to keep going into it and loving that person who seems like your enemy, but that person may be a greater being than you.

Response:  I think for me, the word in this is unmitigated. That's the key, because we may feel that we really have forgiven someone or have felt mercy toward them and then something comes up again. You just have to keep giving that mercy and keep letting it flow and not hanging onto the blocks. That's how it works for me.

4.  The fire within God's heart is the purest of mercy lights.

Response:  And that very fire is at the purest core of him in our hearts, so we can access it.

5.  O beautiful Mercy, how I love thee all through the day, all through the night!

David:  This is a prayer we can give. Because of time constraints, we're going to have to have just one comment per missive from now through number twelve.

6.  Mercy comes to sing nightly to enemies of love, though they often hear only in their dreams.

Response:  It would be good if more of us could remember those dreams, those dreams where we receive those intimations from those who love us and can teach us best.

7.  Mercy is love in its most feminine expression.

Response:  I defer to the women.

Response:  I felt this one as Mercy continuously giving and also giving birth to greater love by doing that.

8.  I envision a new police force of mercy, urging on TLC within every neighborhood, village and city.

Response:  This made me think about how we have to really use conscious application and have that fire of mercy so that wherever we are interacting with others, we realize this is our job, to be a police force of mercy and compassion for life.

9.  The primary components of mercy are purity of motive and unadulterated love.

Response:  Unadulterated is unmitigated, to me. And the purity of motive is just the spontaneous springing without any mitigation, without any adulteration.

10.  Your feeling world may become a paradise of mercy to Earth's children.

Response:  When I heard this, I said the prayer in my heart that my feeling world become a paradise of mercy to Earth's children. I think it's a wonderful prayer.

11.  The prerequisite to being an employee of Mercy is largesse of heart through givingness.

Response:  That ties right in with what Omraam's been teaching us through our observance and ritual of seeing the sun and seeing the willingness of the sun to always be generous with warmth and light. And this, of course, Kuan Yin's missive reminds us, that we have that capacity to let that sun shine in our hearts on the wavelength of mercy.

12.  I am the victory of compassionate mercy in all my affairs and challenges.

David:  So what is compassionate mercy as opposed to just simply mercy or compassion?

Response:  I think compassionate mercy is the willingness to forgive yourself even though you see that you might not have the greatest momentums on mercy in given situations. But with compassion, you can even forgive yourself for being less than perfectly merciful in situations that are very trying.

David:  What she's also conveying is that Mercy must be judicious also in her decision making. She can't just extend what some people think is mercy as pity or sympathy without the certain aspect of the law of mercy, which is compassion. What some think would be mercy in a given situation may not truly be the divine framing of mercy as God would have it be in that moment.
            So you cannot demand mercy to be outpictured in the way that you think it needs to be manifest. God, through the great wisdom of his being through his sisters of mercy—through Kuan Yin and all of the bodhisattvas—can extend that mercy in the most appropriate and perfect way for the greatest benefit of your soul, given the law of karma and the opportunities that present themselves to you as you receive back the energies that you have sent out to the universe, the actions that you have performed, the words that you have said.
            Mercy is a very, very wise steward. And that is why Kuan Yin is on the Karmic Board, because she is very wise and judicious. That word judicious has at its core the word judge. Yet in this sense it is not judgment or oppression, but discernment, discrimination of what is required at a given point to help the soul to grow.
            Karma, in the sense of the law of being, is not a bad thing, although we think of karma as negative. But the Karmic Board also gives the good karma to those who do good. Some people tremble before the Karmic Board, but truly they are simply the epitome of the law of our own being manifest as cosmic mirrors before us to whom we can look for that reflection of God-justice and -judgment and -mercy within us.
            We know that when we appear before those who place the screen before us to have our life review after we pass on, we are our own judge, and this is as it should be. There is no more rancor toward God of being an unjust God, because the law of our own being is what God set in motion through his individuality within us, his beingness within us when he created us.
            That point of God-identity within us is the point of reference from which and through which all cosmic justice is outplayed in the world of form. Isn't that an amazing concept, to think that because we have God within us we cannot blame God for what is transpiring upon the Earth? We cannot blame something outside of us because we are God. Therefore we have the authority to act and to co-create this world as we would see it. We've kind of made a mess of it to date. And so it's our option and our opportunity to clean up that mess and to bring it into the perfect state that God within us has always envisioned it, as beautiful and whole with all the divine creature comforts that we need to manifest our own beingness. For God is a giving God, and we must be giving gods and goddesses to all life upon this Earth.
            Thank you, beloved Kuan Yin, for your great wisdom, your great heart.
