Miracle of Love

Perhaps between now and the last day, something wonderful will happen, a miracle, a miracle of coherence and release.

True Self

Wanting to reform the world without discovering one’s true self is like trying to cover the world with leather to avoid the pain of walking on stones and thorns. It is much simpler to wear shoes. ~Ramana Maharshi (1879 to 1950 Advaita Vedanta Mystic)

Love Much

The important thing is not to think much, but to love much; and so do that which best stirs you to love. ~St. Teresa Of Ávila (1515-1582, Spanish Mystic)

We have no present. Our consciousness is almost completely preoccupied with memory and expectation. We do not realize … Continue reading Present Experience

Kindness

An important point is to meet yourself with kindness, be present with your human self, just like you would be patient and kind with a small child you care about. Criticizing yourself simply adds to the difficulty. ~Lama Palden Drolma (1952 to pres., founder and spiritual director of Sukhasiddhi Foundation, cofounder of the Feminine Wisdom … Continue reading Kindness
