Via Sri Prem Baba – Awaken Love / Flower of the Day: 03/10/17

“The work that I have named the ‘ABC of Spirituality’ is also a phase of the evolutionary journey that is divided into two parts. The first part involves breaking down the barriers that separate us from ourselves which involves becoming aware of denied feelings and healing the scars of the past that prevent the flow of energy in our lives. The second part concerns breaking down the barriers that separate us from others and involves bringing light to the unconscious content that manifests in our relationships, sabotaging our happiness. It is a healing and transformation of the lower self that carries fundamental importance because it serves as a basis for the most important phase yet, the awakening of greater consciousness.”
Sri Prem Baba

Via Daily Dharma / The Value of Routine

If we are to close the gap between ideal and actuality—between the envisaged aim of striving and the lived experience of our everyday lives—it is necessary for us to pay greater heed to the task of repetition.

—Bhikkhu Bodhi, "Vision and Routine"
