All the peace and happiness of the whole globe,
the peace and happiness of societies,
the peace and happiness of family,
the peace and happiness in the individual persons' life,
and the peace and happiness of even the animals and so forth,
all depends on having loving kindness toward each other.
Live with compassion
Work with compassion
Die with compassion
Meditate with compassion
Enjoy with compassion
When problems come,
Experience them with compassion.

Everything other than love
for the most beautiful God
is agony of the spirit, though it be
What is agony of the spirit?
To advance toward death
without seizing hold of
the Water of Life.
- Rumi, from: Teachings of Rumi E.M. Whinfield, posted to AlongTheWay
In reality only the Ultimate is. The rest
is a matter of name and form. And as long
as you cling to the idea that only what has
name and shape exists, the Supreme will
appear to you non-existing. When you
understand that names and shapes are
hollow shells without any content whatsoever,
and what is real is nameless and formless,
pure energy of life and light of consciousness,
you will be at peace - immersed in the deep
silence of reality.

Nothing stands in the way of your liberation and it can happen here and now but for your being more interested in other things. And you cannot fight with your interests. You must go with them, see through them and watch them reveal themselves as mere errors of judgment and appreciation.

Surrender ... accept this moment as it is.
Most of your suffering is self-created.
Suffering is most people's only spiritual teacher.
Your thoughts make you suffer more than anything else.
