Ayya Medhanandi
How can we love everything the same? How can we come to a place of pure love within us so that whatever energy is arising in the heart, we can receive it, and we can accept it fully. We don't have to run away anymore. That way, all experience can be lived and treated the same - the way the sun treats all beings the same. And yet, we must use sharp wisdom to discern what is harmful and abandon that; and to know what is wholesome and cultivate that - like the Buddha's example of a great mother bestowing compassion on all her children.
