Bringing It All Back Home | November 6, 2014

While an attitude of nonattachment is essential, it would be sadly misguided to imagine we need to give up love and affection for our children or other family members in order to follow the Bodhisattva Way.

- Lama Jampa Thaye, "Bringing It All Back Home"

Flower of the Day: 11/06/14

“The great saboteur of peace in relationships is pride, and this pride is serving fear. We must have humility in order to say ‘no’ to the conditioning that makes us point the finger at others through blame. This doesn’t mean looking away from their faults, but rather developing an objective view of reality. In this objective view, there is no room for the blaming game. There’s only space for what is true. This objective viewpoint is only possible to attain through loving consciousness.”

Sri Prem Baba
