All we need is enough.
For as long as I breathe, I hope.
I never understood the teaching that giving is receiving. But maybe it’s just as simple as giving a high five. You don’t just give something, you get something, the same thing, a thing that exists between you, created by you both, expressing an emotion, and a sense of unity. Like a high five, Love is created between two people, but belongs to neither. It is not deserved or purposeful. It is neither conservative or liberal.
To give Love is to enjoy the duet of affection that would never have existed without you.
Life is small if you only live for yourself. Live large. Love all.
The spiritual journey does not need your help at all. It never has. It’s doing it’s job just fine without you. It does, however, need you to stop sabotaging it. So in that one way we may participate in our own salvation.
It is the height of arrogance not to be grateful for everything you have.
It isn’t our minds only that makes humanity great, it is mostly our ability to love divinely that makes the universe blush.
It’s not so much that we don’t have the right to feel angry, we just don’t have the right to stay angry.
Self-loss is just the pessimistic way of saying self-giving.
Two sides of the same coin really.
For peace to break free from its bonds we, as a whole, have to learn how to give up winning. That means each of us, in turn, has to learn how to give up our winning. Because when we win, by default someone we love loses. The ego loves winning; it is the way of the world. So, blessed are those who do not win in the ways of the world for theirs is the kingdom of God.
Is it possible to let others win over you all the time? That is what it means to give up winning. Is it possible to accept only loss out of deference to others? All the time? Is that even desirable? Jesus answered yes to this question.
