Via Ram Dass

I began to see that my work was purification. It was getting my theme straight, it was lightening up my attachments, getting out of living such a complicated life, simplifying my life, relating to other human beings, so that when I met another person, I found the place in them where we are, and I didn’t get caught and lost in the melodrama of our relationships.

Via Sri Prem Baba – Awaken Love / Flower of the Day: 06/28/17

A child is born with the need for exclusive love. It wants the father’s or mother’s love only for itself. To love exclusively is impossible and so even if the child had loving and conscious parents, inevitably it would feel frustration at not having been loved. As such, this frustration is part of the design on this plane. It is due to this need that we develop the false idea that we have enemies. Unavoidably, our first enemies are our parents because they were unable to love us exclusively. From this point on, we begin to construct projects of our pacts of revenge.”
Sri Prem Baba

Via Daily Dharma: The Awakened Heart

There’s nothing as impoverished as the deeply unawakened heart; and nothing enriches us more, and brings more life and meaningfulness, than the awakened heart.
