Quotes

Юля Кралевськаhas quoted2 years ago
True love is made of four elements: loving kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity.

f you understand your own suffering, you can help him to understand his suffering.
Юля Кралевськаhas quoted2 years ago
The third element of true love is the capacity to offer joy. When you know how to generate joy, it nourishes you and nourishes the other person. Your presence is an offering, like fresh air, or spring flowers, or the bright blue sky.
