The most exquisite paradox…as soon as you give it all up, you can have it all. As long as you want power, you can’t have it. The minute you don’t want power, you’ll have more than you ever dreamed possible.

“O sol te ilumina, independentemente do que você pensa sobre ele. A água sacia a sua sede, independentemente do que você pensa sobre ela. Sempre digo que a última prova da universidade dos relacionamentos é amar mesmo que o outro não te ame. Em algum momento o ser humano desenvolve essa qualidade e se torna o amor, pois esse é o seu destino. Tornar-se o amor significa ter essa qualidade do sol e da água - significa amar desinteressadamente.”

“El sol te ilumina, independientemente de lo que piensasacerca de él. El agua calmatu sed, independientemente de lo que piensasde ella. Siempre digo que el últimoexamen de la universidad de las relaciones es amaraunque el otro no te ame. En algún momento el ser humano desarrolla esta cualidad y se convierte en amor, porque ese es su destino. Convertirse en amor significa tener esta cualidad del sol y del agua, significa amar desinteresadamente.”

“The sun shines on us, regardless of what we think about it. Water quenches our thirst, regardless of what we think about it. The ultimate test in the university of relationships is to remain loving even if the other doesn’t love us in return. At one point, the human being develops this quality and becomes love itself because this is the being’s destiny. To become love means to have the same quality as the sun and water. It means to love selflessly.”

There is a difference between ordinary beings and those who are on the path. The latter can simultaneously know suffering and the emptiness of suffering that is the state of wisdom.
