1. Bringing Love to Yourself:
The ego tries to Love, but it cannot do it. It knows only how to demand. Love does not come from the ego. But it must come to the ego, from you. Your Love for the fearful part of yourself creates safety. This kind of self-nurturing is the primary activity of spiritual life. When you bring Love to yourself, ego is not a problem. It’s only a problem when you are not bringing Love. ~ Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini
2. Love cannot give you anything. Love only knows an extension of Love.
3. “Make no mistake about it — enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It is seeing through the facade of pretense. It is the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true.” ~ Adyashanti
4. The best things in life are not things — they are the inner states of our consciousness and Life. We can learn how to cultivate certain qualities in ourselves, such as Genuineness, Authenticity, Joy, Peace, Faith, and Creativity.
