Via Ram Dass

Love doesn’t know boundaries. The mind creates the boundary of separation between me and you. The heart just keeps embracing and opening out, so that things that open your heart open you out into the universe and allow you to experience preciousness, the grace, the sweetness, and the thick interconnectedness of it all.

It’s even more than interconnected. It’s all one thing, and it just keeps changing its flow and patterns, and you’re just a part of it.

Via Sri Prem Baba – Awaken Love / Flower of the Day: 06/07/17

“When you become aware of negative aspects of your personality, do not despair, just try to let the feelings pass. Become the passive observer creating distance between you and the false self. See that it is not you because if it were, you would not be able to observe it. Just perform this practice and soon you will be guided on how to reverse the situation and redirect the vectors of the will. Until now, your will - the major power of the soul - was used by negative impulses and the only way to redirect this energy into something positive is through a form of intelligent austerity.”
Sri Prem Baba
