Via Sri Prem Baba – Awaken Love / Flower of the Day: 05/24/17

We need to be the change we want to see in the world."

This means that the work starts here, inside of us. But how can we promote internal change without self-knowledge? How can we transform the world if we still cannot understand the mechanics of the mind and the ego? In the first place, we need to understand that we are where we have put ourselves - that the external is a reflection of the internal. Whether it’s happening in our own homes or elsewhere on the planet, everything that happens in our lives is a manifestation - a materialization - of our thoughts and feelings.
Sri Prem Baba

Via Daily Dharma: We're All in the Same Boat

We’re all in the same boat. I don’t know how to save the world, yet I must save the world. I don’t know how to save myself, yet I must save myself. I don’t know where my soul resides, yet I must discover my soul because I live within it.

—Josh Fox, “What Makes Humanity Worth Saving

Via Ram Dass

When you look at another person, what do you see? Body? That’s desire. What do you see? Personality? …That’s attachment.

Beyond body, beyond personality, way back in here, way back behind all the things you think you are, here we are. That’s the being you serve.

- Ram Dass -
