love & desire

Quotes for contemplation from
"The Yoga of Truth" book :

 

All desires originate
in a longing for the self,
for real happiness.

 

 

Yet the ego prefers tears
to apparent emptiness.

 

 

When you remain fully focused
on this truth,
then the most unpleasant, boring,
or irritating things
become your most prized
and enjoyable challenges,
even including death.

 

 

Yoga requires unity
between enjoyment and suffering,
between bhoga and yoga,
even between attachment and detachment.

 

 

If you desire nothing,
then all your desires are fulfilled.

 

 

Love fills the gap
that mind has created
between body and self,
and between the universe
and cosmic consciousness.

 

 

There is a huge difference between
making love and having sex.

 

 

The true alternative is
to want what you have.

 

 

You can only truly love life
and everything life brings you,
when you are entirely free from it.
