Join Me on Facebook!




The other day, I decided to set up a page on Facebook, "Awakening Heart," that serves in the same way this blog does...to collect words, ideas, pictures, and other forms of media that remind me I'm a spiritual being having a human experience.

I hope you will join the community ... 

Mucho love,

Susannah

Compassion - Robert Adams


"What is compassion? Actually compassion is when you are reconciled with this entire universe.
There is nothing in this whole universe that you are against. Think about that. Compassion means
reverence for all of life, everything is alive, there is no such thing as dead matter. Everything has its own life.

When you have reverence for life, you respect everything, you have no animosity towards
anyone or anything.

. . . Have you ever heard of a Sage or a liberated person, who was at odds with anything in this world?
You have to come to terms with yourself."

Love - Viktor E. Frankl


“Love is the only way to grasp another human being in the innermost core of his personality. No one can become fully aware of the very essence of another human being unless he loves him. By his love he is enabled to see the essential traits and features in the beloved person; and even more, he sees that which is potential in him, which is not yet actualized but yet ought to be actualized. Furthermore, by his love, the loving person enables the beloved person to actualize these potentialities. By making him aware of what he can be and of what he should become, he makes these potentialities come true.”
