Flower of the Day: 08/07/14

“Surrender is only possible if there is trust, and trust is a blossoming. One can remain cowering at the edge of the abyss of love for months, years, or many lives, too afraid to jump. One may be hearing love’s call asking one to jump, but it’s not possible to determine when one will be ready for this to happen.”

Sri Prem Baba

The Long Road to Sitting Still | August 7, 2014

The Buddha, perhaps, taking the Middle Way and always reminding us that even our destination is unfixed and perhaps illusory, is every walker’s special friend. Those who journey with him know that they may not come to knowledge so much as a deepened sense of their own ignorance.
- Pico Iyer, “The Long Road to Sitting Still”
