Dharma Bites-The Love that Brings Right Answers

“The love which brings the right answer to moral problems is an exercise of justice and realism and really looking.  The difficulty is to keep the attention fixed upon the real situation and to prevent it returning surreptitiously to the self with consolations of self-pity, resentment, fantasy, and despair. Attention is rewarded by a knowledge of reality.”

That discovery has been one of the most wonderful realizations in this path I’ve found and a freedom I never had in my old paths.
