Via Sri Prem Baba – Awaken Love / Flower of the Day: 04/27/17

“Where there is fear, there is hatred. Where there is hatred, there is fear. This is a vicious circle that perpetuates when we indiscriminately put new human beings in the world. The human species has been driven by unconscious impulses that are rooted in religious and social conditionings. This type of ignorance has breed even more ignorance. As long as we are unaware of the purpose of bringing a being here to this planet, we have no way to break this vicious circle.”
Sri Prem Baba

Via Daily Dharma / How to Meditate Anywhere

Anytime you can go out and keep all of your visual and auditory senses alive—looking above eye level, hearing behind you as well as in front of you—you’re performing meditation in the natural world. You’re poised for any stimulus coming from anywhere. It’s as down-to-earth as you can get and still be up in the sky.

—James H. Austin, quoted in Zenshin Michael Haederle’s, "This Is Your Brain on Zen"
