“To be loved is a good thing. To love others is a better thing.
But to love God and man in God’s own way is by far the best thing.
When we are loved, our life becomes meaningful.
When we love, our life becomes soulful.”
“My true friend is he who loves me for what I inwardly am
and not for what I outwardly have.”
- Sri Chinmoy
“Hope itself is happiness.
It needs no outer happiness
To add to its joy.
Love itself is satisfaction.
It needs no outer satisfaction
To add to its reality-strength.”
- Sri Chinmoy
“Do we have the capacity to help others? Yes, we do. Do we have the capacity to help others in words? Yes, we do. Do we have the capacity to help others in deeds? Yes, we do. Then how is it that we do not help others? We do not help others for various reasons. I wish to cite a few deplorable and painful reasons.The most deplorable reason is a very simple one. We do not want to see happiness in others; we want only our own happiness. By nature, we human beings are cruel to one another. By nature, we do not want to see others happy. When we see that others are happy, we feel that our own little world is totally shattered and destroyed. The animal in us gets happiness from destruction. The human in us gets happiness from division and a sense of separativity. But the divine in us gets satisfaction only from oneness. The divine in us knows nothing else save and except oneness.”
