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

“The moment arrives in the evolutionary journey when your heart is full of joy and love. You feel so filled that you naturally desire to share this with others. However, this phenomenon can’t be pre-meditated or controlled because it is a flowering. When you are in this state, no effort is needed to share because you are simply overflowing with these qualities.”
Sri Prem Baba

Like a forest fire, anger tends to burn up its own support. If we jump down into the middle of such a fire, we will have little chance of putting it out, but if we create a clearing around the edges, the fire can burn itself out. This is the role of meditation: creating a clearing around the margins of anger.

—Mark Epstein, "I’ve Been Meditating for Ten Years, and I’m Still Angry. What’s the Matter with Me?"
