Via Ram Dass


You get to be at home with change. You get to be at home with uncertainty. You get to be at home with not knowing how it all comes out. and you make a plan knowing full well that it may be totally irrelevant a moment later, and you’re at peace with that.

I find that when I’m at a choice point, the best thing to do is to quiet and empty and go back to square one. But I try to stay at the choice point as long as I can, because that’s as interesting a place as any other place, to stay with not knowing what to do. But if you listen, it all becomes apparent in time. Patience is good. The tolerance for not knowing what’s what is quite an art form.

Via Sri Prem Baba – Awaken Love / Flower of the Day: 04/12/17

“The process of expanding consciousness requires firmness and a constant renewal of our vows. The price of spiritual awakening is high. In the material world, if we want a house or a nice car, we pay the price. But, in the spiritual world, we want a palace for the price of a hut. We want to awaken the potentialities of the spirit without paying the price of removing the layers of self-deceit. This is not possible.”
Sri Prem Baba

Via Daily Dharma / The Sustenance of Life:

We humans have a way of touching each other’s lives deeply even despite ourselves. In finding our way to each other, we find what is, after all, already there, waiting to be found, wanting to be found.

—Andrew Cooper, "Life’s Hidden Support"
