“Everything that happens externally is part of a process that is also happening internally. Any separation is but an illusion. The external is a reflection of the internal – all is one. When a challenge needs to be conquered or turbulences overcome, we may choose to remain in our comfort zones, but that prevents us from receiving these experiences. If there were no fire to extinguish, we would never see the fire from up close. Everything is school material.”
Sri Prem Baba
Compassion and Wisdom | November 10, 2014
The one thing I always come back to is that compassion and wisdom are at the heart of the Buddha’s teaching. If you cannot find either wisdom or compassion in something, then I don’t feel that it can really be the Buddha’s teaching.
