The resistance to the unpleasant situation is the root of suffering.
More quotes by Ram Dass
Once you have drunk from the water of unconditional love, no other well can satisfy your thirst. The pangs of separation may become so intense that seeking the affection of the Beloved becomes an obsession.
Unconditional love really exists in each of us. It is part of our deep inner being. It is not so much an active emotion as a state of being. It’s not ‘I love you’ for this or that reason, not ‘I love you if you love me.’ It’s love for no reason, love without an object.
Our whole spiritual transformation brings us to the point where we realize in our own being, we are enough.

A banker is a fellow who lends his umbrella when the sun is shining and wants it back the minute it begins to rain.
Count on it, if a person talks of their misfortune, there is something in it that is not disagreeable to them.
Nobody can write the life of a man but those who have eat and drunk and lived in social intercourse with him.
If it matters, it will hurt like knives or wrap and lift you in the most immeasurable joy. Or both. One thing is certain, you will feel intensely alive.
