Day 40 of #100daysofmaking
I was flipping through the book A Path With a Heart by Jack Kornfield this morning This meditation had been bookmarked by a past guest at the house we are renting for the week. It felt in perfect alignment with the story of the pearl.
.
The creation of a pearl begins with an irritation — a piece of grit, which serves as an irritating parasite to the tender flesh of the oyster. In response, the oyster builds up layers of calcium carbonate around the alien element, gradually growing a beautiful pearl.

‘Meditation: Seeing All Beings as Enlightened
“A traditional skillful (and at times humorous) reflection can be used to change our relationship to difficulties. The image of this meditation can be easily developed and brought to our daily life. Picture or imagine that this earth is filled with Buddhas, that every single being you and counter is enlightened, except one—yourself! Imagine that they are all here to teach you. Whoever you encounter is acting as they do solely for your benefit, to provide just the teachings and difficulties you need in order to awaken.
Sense what lessons they offer you. Inwardly think them for this. Throughout a day or a week continue to develop the image of enlightened teachers all around you. Notice how it changes your whole perceptive on life.”

Earrings: White pearls suspended from and suspending brass heart coins. With gold fill ear wires.
