Brian’s Reflection: Friday evening, March 30, 2012

Love is so exquisitely elusive.
It cannot be bought, cannot be badgered, cannot be hijacked.
It is available only in one rare form:
as the natural response of a healthy mind and healthy heart.

Eknath Easwaran

Words to Live By

Easwaran is absolutely right from my experience and belief. If what you get or give can be bought, badgered, or hijacked, it isn’t Love.

I deeply appreciate his pointing out that Love is not some mushy, emotional, self-demeaning, or self-abasing thing. It comes out of a healthy mind and a healthy heart.

The Gospel has taught me how to have a healthy heart and mind. I hope your Path has too.
