Right intention, Right effort
Also referred to as Conscious Intention and Concious Effort which are the second and sixth parts of the eight-fold path of the Dharma.
By posting here K-dog you are exploring ways to replace Ingnorance with Knowledge. This evaporates fear and prejudice. By doing so within you start a seed of ending violence of oppression in those around you. This touches others in a chain. By growing peace within and focussing so as to cultivate compassion you start a colony.
I also sense that you sre exploring the compassion that you learned more of your own realization than from the precepts taught by spiritual leaders. This must be an exploration full of wonder and discovery.
Right awareness (Seventh part of the Dharma) is the sesnsing of how your intention and effort benefit you spiritually. Both pradigms refer to this as enlightenment.
Without even realizing it you are following the Dharma by following wisdom behind the lettering of the accounts of Christ's teachings.
May you be free of fear and pain. May you be safe from inner and outer danger.......is the begining of the lovingkindness meditation
You are making the world around you a kinder place.
Love and affirmation,

When you come to know that your entitlement to joy is a given, All that remains is the exploration of the many different ways to let it in
