Via Sri Prem Baba – Awaken Love / Flower of the Day: 06/08/17

“When you see that you can’t accept that the other wants something different than what you had in mind and you become angry and frustrated, stop and ask yourself, ‘Who in me wants to control the other? Who in me can’t allow the other to follow their own path? Who is feeling threatened by the other’s freedom? Even if you see that this ‘freedom’ is dragging the other one down a hole, who in you needs to prevent the other from falling down? Sometimes, the other needs to fall in the same hole over and over again in order to learn how not to fall.”
Sri Prem Baba
