JMG HomoQuotable - Jim Parsons

"I never had a coming out piece, I just didn't mention it. I took [my partner] Todd with me to events and then finally one day while working on Harvey I did a piece with Patrick Healy for The New York Times and he just point-blank asked, 'Was working on The Normal Heart meaningful to you as a gay man?' And I was like, 'Well, yeah. Yeah.'  I can't tell you what a wonderful thing that was, what a gift he gave me with one question. It was suddenly out there and official." - Jim Parsons, speaking on Inside The Actors Studio.

“No atual estágio da nossa jornada evolutiva a principal prática espiritual é se relacionar com o outro de forma pacífica. Todas as demais práticas devem estar a serviço disso. Muitos buscadores estão preocupados em abrir os chakras, despertar a kundalini, adquirir poderes... Mas nada disso adianta se não pudermos amar. É tempo de sustentar o seu coração aberto enquanto se relaciona com o outro. Enquanto não pudermos manifestar essa consciência amorosa, seguiremos destruindo a natureza, matando os animais e machucado os outros e a nós mesmos.”

“En el estadio actual de nuestro camino evolutivo, la principal práctica espiritual es relacionarse con el otro de forma pacífica. Todas las demás prácticas deben estar al servicio de eso. Muchos buscadores están preocupados por abrir los chakras, despertar la kundalini, adquirir poderes... Pero nada de eso sirve si no podemos amar. Es tiempo de sustentar tu corazón abierto mientras te relacionas con el otro. Mientras no podamos manifestar esa consciencia amorosa, seguiremos destruyendo la naturaleza, matando los animales y lastimando a los otros y a nosotros mismos.”

“At the current stage of our evolutionary journey, our main spiritual practice is to relate to others peacefully. All other practices should be working towards this. Many seekers are preoccupied with opening chakras, awakening kundalini, and acquiring powers. However, none of this is worth it if we are not able to love. It is time to sustain an open heart while relating to others. As long as we are not able to embody loving awareness, we will continue to destroy nature, kill animals and hurt others as well as ourselves.”

Today's Daily Dharma: Into the Valley

Into the Valley
Religious awakening does not depend initially on who we are or what we do; rather, it is becoming attuned to the working of great compassion at the heart of existence.
