Via Ram Dass / Words of Wisdom:

February 14, 2016

There is a being on another plane that guides, protects, and helps you. That loves you so incredibly. Does your sense of unworthiness prevent you from being loved as much as this being loves you? Unworthiness has to go. You have to be able to say, "Christ, God, Baba, let me feel your love. Let me fill up with your love, let me be absorbed into your love." Breathe in and out of your heart; with each in breath, you take in that love a little more. With each out breath, you get rid of that which keeps you from acknowledging that you are love.

Via Sri Prem Baba: Flor do dia -Flor del día - Flower of the day 14/02/2016

“Costumo chamar os comandos do coração de ‘sim’ e tudo o que vem da mente condicionada de ‘não’. O sim é a ação que nasce da presença; é o amor em movimento. O não nasce do passado, da agitação interna. Ele é uma forma de se defender e se proteger das possíveis ameaças da vida. O não é, portanto, uma reação. E sempre que estamos reagindo criamos um sintoma muito fácil de ser identificado: as situações negativas e destrutivas que se repetem nas nossas vidas.”

“Acostumbro nombrar a los comandos del corazón 'sí' y todo lo que viene de la mente condicionada 'no'. El sí es la acción que nace de la presencia; es el amor en movimiento. El no nace del pasado, de la agitación interna. Es una manera de defenderse y protegerse de las posibles amenazas de la vida. El no es, por lo tanto, una reacción. Y siempre que estamos reaccionando creamos un síntoma muy fácil de ser identificado: las situaciones negativas y destructivas que se repiten en nuestras vidas.”

"I refer to the commands of the heart as a 'yes' and everything that comes from the conditioned mind as a 'no.' The yes is an action that is born of presence; it is love in motion. The no is born from the past, from inner agitation. The no is a reaction, a way to defend and protect ourselves from life’s potential threats. Whenever we are reacting, we generate easily identifiable symptoms, which are all the negative and destructive situations that repeat in our lives.”

Via Daily Dharma: How to Notice Love

Our society provides no curriculum or schooling on how to notice love or to recognize the many people who have transmitted its life-giving power. Most of us haven’t been taught that to receive love deeply and transmit it wholeheartedly is a real human possibility, that it can be learned, and that to do so is the key to our deepest well-being, our spiritual life, and our capacity to bring more goodness into this world.

—John Makransky, "Love Is All Around"
