Love

Love is the absence of judgment.


The XIV Dalai Lama

Bitterness

Hatred does not cease by hatred,
but only by love; this is the eternal rule.


Gautama Buddha

Love

Sometimes love means letting go,
when you want to hold on tighter.

Where our life flows

Wisdom says we are nothing.
Love says we are everything.

Between these two our life flows.

Memory and Fantasy

When we let go of our battles and open our heart to things as they are,
then we come to rest in the present moment.
This is the beginning and the end of spiritual practice.
Only in this moment can we discover that which is timeless.
Only here can we find the love that we seek.

Love in the past is simply memory,
and love in the future is fantasy.

Only in the reality of the present can we love,
can we awaken, can we find peace and understanding and connection with ourselves and the world.


Jack Kornfield

Marrying for love

Everybody talks about marrying for love,
but isn’t it really just marrying for sex?

In the end isn’t it really only about a penis and a vagina?
Why doesn’t anybody simply say that he’s fallen in love with a vagina?
