Have you heard of a thing called an atom? It is a very, very tiny little
particle, that is the building block for everything.
Do you think you could guess how many atoms there are in one grain of salt?
How about 1,800,000,000,000,000,000?
Or 1.8 million trillion atoms in one
tiny grain of salt. Do you know what is even weirder?
That inside one of those atoms, just
one, there is enough energy to power a city for years and years (nuclear
power) or kill hundred of thousands (nuclear bomb).
We have trillions and trillions and
trillions of atoms within each of us.
Each of us is filled with so much
power, why do we get tired?
Some people say it is just because we
haven't learned how to use the power that is within each of us. Great
meditation masters from the past have done all sorts of things that we might
think of as being extraordinary, like moving mountains, or healing sick
people, or even travelling to other places thousands of kilometres away in
When we learn to meditate, we learn to
use the power of the heart. Would you believe it is much more powerful than
the power of the atom? Inside our hearts there is so much love we can't even
begin to count it. Much more than 1.8 million trillion, our hearts are
actually filled with the love that is inside us all.
Would you believe it if i said, that
the love that is inside me, is the same love that is inside you.
When we meditate, we look into our
hearts and see everyone's hearts.
