Via Sri Prem Baba – Awaken Love / Flower of the Day: 06/01/17

“Relationship is an instrument that allows us to see our enchantment and dream. What allows us to awaken from this sleep is self-knowledge. When we find ourselves skating on the thin ice of neediness, feeling sad or irritated due to our needs or expectations not being met by the other, this is the alarm that tells us we have fallen asleep and are dreaming. We have lost presence and have been taken over by unconscious impulses. We are projecting our misery on the other. It is our past that is busy reacting while our present self has actually left the scene. The other is just there interacting with characters of our past that manifest in the forms of jealousy, insecurity, fear and many other consequences of this past.”
Sri Prem Baba
