Via Sri Prem Baba – Awaken Love / Flower of the Day: 03/09/17

“How can we rise above fear and isolation? How do we go beyond our mental patterns that interfere with our ability to communicate and cause our relationships to become so destructive and sick? How do we illuminate the knowledge that allows us to use sexual energy to ascend? When we enter into this sphere of our journey of self-knowledge, we begin to explore the mystery of sexuality and the role it plays in the process of evolution and the awakening of consciousness. We use the teachings of tantra to help us move the vital energy upwards towards the heart. We move the sexual energy in the direction of love. Through love, we move towards freedom.”
Sri Prem Baba

Via Daily Dharma / Buddha Wisdom

When a distraught mother asked [the Buddha] to heal the dead child she carried in her arms, he did not perform a miracle, but instead instructed her to bring him a mustard seed from a house where no one had ever died. She returned from her search without the seed, but with the knowledge that death is universal.

—The Buddha, "Who is the Buddha?"
