Via Sri Prem Baba: Flor do Dia- Flor del Día- Flower of the day 09/06/2015

“A criança nasce amando, mas logo aprende a odiar, porque entra em contato com a inconsciência coletiva. Muito cedo ela aprende a sentir ciúme e a usar máscaras para receber o que deseja. Isso aciona um círculo vicioso que faz com que o fluxo natural do amor seja interrompido.”

“El niño nace amando, pero luego aprende a odiar, porque entra en contacto con la inconsciencia colectiva. Muy temprano aprende a sentir celos y a usar máscaras para recibir lo que desea. Esto acciona un círculo vicioso que hace que el flujo natural del amor sea interrumpido.”

"When children are born, they are loving. But soon after they learn to hate, because they come into contact with the collective unconscious. From very early on they learn to feel jealousy and to use masks to get what they want. This sets off a vicious circle that interrupts the natural flow of love.”

Today's Daily Dharma: Less Ambition, Less Disturbance

Less Ambition, Less Disturbance
The beautiful thing about having less obsessions and ambitions, and just sitting straight and watching the breathing, is that nothing will disturb us. Things only disturb us when we have an aim. When we have an aim, we become obsessed. Say our aim is to go somewhere, but somebody parks right in front of our car, blocking us. If something gets in the way of our aim, it becomes a terrible thing. If we don?t have an aim, though, it doesn't matter.

- Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche, "Do Nothing"
