Via Ram Dass / Words of Wisdom - October 30, 2019 šŸ’Œ

"The final awakening is the embracing of the darkness into the light. That means embracing our humanity as well as our divinity. What we go from is being born into our humanity, sleep walking for a long time, until we awaken and start to taste our divinity. And then we want to finally get free, but we see as long as we grab at our divinity and push away our humanity we aren’t free. If you want to be free, you can’t push away anything. You have to embrace it all. It’s all God."

Via Daily Dharma: Wisdom Leads to Compassion

Compassion is the natural functioning of wisdom. The clearer one sees, the more readily one uses loving words.
