"When understood, the Buddha’s universe..is anything but alien and inhibiting. It is a world full of hope, where everything we need to do can be done and everything that matters is within human reach. It is a world where kindness, unselfishness, non-violence, and compassion achieve what self-interest and arrogance cannot. It is a world where any human can be happy in goodness and the fullness of giving." ❦ Eknath Easwara

When We Love, We Too Hold Hands with Krishnamurti
He spoke in his accustomed softness and care for a few minutes before calling on a fellow who had raised his hand with a question. Krishnamurti answered slowly, then stopped and began again, then stopped again. He said his aging had caused him to not always be so very sharp and would the fellow just come down and hold his hand.
It was a teaching for us all that some day all that might be left of us is our love.”
Stephen Levine - Turning Toward the Mystery
