USA Africa Dialogue Series - Love: Eknath Easwaran

Eknath Easwaran

"Love means that whenever negative thoughts enter the mind, we can turn our attention to positive thoughts instead. This is all that is required to guard ourselves against lapses from love.

The key to this is giving – our time, our talents, our resources, our skills, our lives – to selfless work, some cause greater than our small personal interests. By working hard to give what we can, and by cultivating kindness and compassion under every provocation, we can escape destructive ways of thinking. Even those facing a critical illness will find that this simple prescription can lift the burdens of resentment, guilt, and depression from their lives.

When this skill of love becomes second nature, even when someone is cruel to us, our eyes will not be diverted from the divine core of his personality."

– Eknath Easwaran, from "Original Goodness: A Commentary on the Beatitudes"
