The true source of joy is love — love of God, love of beauty, love of wisdom, love of another human being, it does not matter which. It is all one love: a joyful awareness of dissolving boundaries of our ordinary narrow self, of being one with the reality beyond, of being made whole.
there are no emotions that make us “feel” any better, any more clear or any more alive……we must allow what is…….what is not contrived……
Eventually the feeling that others are much like us eliminates the sense of separation and isolation. That development allows us to bond to others, as well as to the deep part of the self. The growing sense that one is part of everyone can be expressed in many ways; as a poignant caring for other, as feelings that another’s joy and pain is much like one’s own, as self-acceptance., as nonjudgment. By accepting our potential for shortcomings we more humbly take our place among other human beings. ~Marsha Sinetar
Be thirsty Heart, seek forever without rest.
Let this soundless longing hidden deep inside you
be the source of every word you say.
