Via Sri Prem Baba – Awaken Love / Flower of the Day: 04/01/17

“Just as people can get addicted to sugar or any other substance, they can also get addicted to something much subtler such as the negative feelings generated by life’s tragedies. These feelings produce a chemical in the body, certain neurotransmitters, that humans are addicted to. Since we become conditioned to feel pleasure in suffering, when we try to abstain from this ‘drug’, we suffer from a withdrawal crisis.”
Sri Prem Baba

Via Daily Dharma / Do Less, Live More:

It has been said, and with good reason, that dying people never wish they had spent more time in the office. Doing matters little to the dying. As death draws near, it is relationships—with family, with friends, with God—that hold the greatest appeal.

—Dr. William Thomas, as quoted in C. W. Huntington, Jr.'s "The Miracle of the Ordinary"
