Truly wise is he who is unstirred by praise or blame, by love or hatred. He is not moved by the opposites of life. Verily does he delight in the blissful Self.Lovely Thoughts for Lovely People Just Like You
Happiness or sorrow - whatever befalls you, walk on untouched, unattached.
Love consists not in feeling great things but in having great detachment and in suffering for the Beloved. The soul that is attached to anything, however much good there may be in it, will not arrive at the liberty of Divine union.
St John of the Cross
To enjoy anything, we cannot be attached to it. What we usually try to do is capture any joy that comes our way before it can escape... But if I am willing to kiss the joy as it flies, I say, 'Yes, this moment is beautiful. I won't grab it. I'll let it go.'... If we don't cling to past or future and we live entirely here and now, in 'Eternity's sunrise'.
