Via Sri Prem Baba – Awaken Love / Flower of the Day: 03/30/17

“Purpose is love in action. Love expresses itself in different ways through each of us. A eucalyptus tree can only express itself as a eucalyptus tree. A shrub can only express itself as a shrub. Neither is better. Problems come when we are not aware of who we are and we try to act like the other. It’s like a shrub trying to be a eucalyptus tree or vice-versa. Like this, we betray our own essence and are unable to manifest love.”
Sri Prem Baba

Via Daily Dharma / Managing Your Corner of the Universe

Zen practice, however, teaches you to completely be yourself—if you don’t, who will? Someone’s got to hold down your corner of the universe, and no one else is qualified.
