Via Sri Prem Baba – Awaken Love / Flower of the Day: 02/16/17

“You can only give that which you already have. When you are afraid of losing love, you force yourself to give that which you don’t have. This false giving creates a series of psycho-emotional and physical illnesses. True charity or selfless service is putting love in movement that is not manufactured  and has already been illuminated by awareness and comprehension. You can try to pretend to be charitable and in service, but the only one you fool is yourself.”
Sri Prem Baba

Via Daily Dharma / The Achievement of Altruism:

According to the scriptures, the mere inclination to generate bodhicitta thus shows a certain degree of spiritual evolution and maturity.
