Well then, love your suffering. Do not resist it, do not flee from it. It is only your aversion to it that hurts, nothing else. ~Herman Hesse In order to develop love–universal love, cosmic love, whatever you would like to call it–one must accept the whole situation of life as it is, both the light and the dark, the good and the bad. One must open oneself to life, communicate with it. ~Chogyam Trungpa It is our true nature, our vast heart that is always open, always in truth, and always touching with compassion the moment exactly as it is, that transforms our experience. This transformation occurs not by changing our experience, but by fully embracing and accepting it, seeing it with the eyes of truth rather than illusion. Whatever is here, whatever is arising is coming up to be met, to be seen, to be loved. ~Dorothy Hunt Love and compassion are like the weak spots in the walls of ego. They are like a naturally occurring opening. And they are the opening we take. If we connect with even one moment of good heart or compassion and cherish it, our ability to open will gradually expand. Beginning to tune into even the minutest feelings of compassion or appreciation or gratitude softens us. It allows us to touch in with the noble heart of bodhicitta on the spot. ~Pema Chodron When we stop judging others and ourselves, our heart begins to open. The way to healing is to learn to love and accept ourselves unconditionally. It means to embrace both our positive and negative sides with love… Healing happens when we bring everything that we find inside ourselves out into the light. ~Swami Dhyan Giten Through Love all pain will turn to medicine. ~Rumi Opening to whatever is present can be a heartbreaking business.

Do it! ~Rumi Love means tearing down the veils and exposing the secrets. ~Nuri Light up the fire of love inside, and blaze the thoughts away. ~Rumi Only love can penetrate all your karmas and resistances and set your heart on fire with the awareness of its true nature. ~Gurumayi Chidvilasananda The true lover finds the light only if, like the candle, he is his own fuel, consuming himself. ~Attar Love is a flame that burns everything other than itself. It is the destruction of all that is false and the fulfillment of all that is true. ~Adyashanti Love is this empty, wild force that cannot be minimized, kept small, controlled, bottled, boxed or made to behave. And the price is the complete burning of everything else. ~Jeannie Zandi When we find the heart of compassion, of love, then we’ll easily find the courage to let go because we’ve found that which is trustworthy. ~Adyashanti All that is trustworthy is this immeasurable silent awareness that is the truth of who you are, that is love. ~Gangaji Love sometimes wants to do us a great favor: hold us upside down and shake all the nonsense out. ~Hafiz Love came and emptied me of Self, every vein and every pore, made into a container to be filled by the Beloved. Of me, only a name is left, the rest is You my friend, my Beloved. ~Abu-Said Abil-Kheir The path of Love isn’t easy … I am shipwrecked and must be sunk. ~Rumi Only in the state of love will the beautiful, fragrant flower of freedom and supreme bliss unfold its petals and bloom. ~Amma Peace is the natural by-product of love, which is the natural by-product of freedom. ~Jana Pierce van Loon For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through Love. ~Carl Sagan
