Choosing love anyway

Choosing love anyway

“I admire people who could have turned cold after everything they’ve been through but still chose love anyway. There’s strength in that.” ~Keneilwe D Mhlanga⠀

My natural tendency after being wounded is to shut down my heart and hold everyone at a distance. I admire people who can keep their hearts open and choose love even in the face of having been wounded. That is strength indeed.

Knowing who I am

Knowing who I am

“Wisdom is knowing I am nothing, love is knowing I am everything, and between the two my life flows.” ~Nisargadatta Maharaj

Sometimes knowing who we are and what our place is in the grand scheme of things means being able to balance ourselves gently in the paradox of two great truths that appear to be in conflict.

How do you stay balanced inside this paradox? Do you have a tendency to find yourself leaning out of the paradox in one direction over the other?
