"Teachings on Love" helps water those seeds of love in your heart. Here one of the parts I liked the most:
"Look into the eyes of your beloved and ask deeply, "Who are you, my love, who has come to me and taken my suffering as your suffering, my happiness as your happiness, my life and death as your life and death? Who are you whose self has become my self? Why aren't you a dewdrop, a butterfly, a bird, a pine tree? Ask with your whole body and mind. Later, you will have to ask the person who causes you the most suffering the same questions...To understand, you have to become one with your beloved, and also one with your so-called enemy. You have to worry about what they worry about, suffer their suffering, appreciate what they appreciate. You and the object of your love cannot be two. They are as much you as you are yourself...See and listen with the whole of your being. If you are fully present, the rain of the Dharma will water the deepest seeds in your store consciousness, and tomorrow, while you are washing the dishes or looking at the blue sky, that seed will spring forth, and love and understanding will appear as a beautiful flower."
Beautiful isn't it? Now I must go, I need to begin my practice...
I should read this book sooner and it would have saved my relationship with Lily Susanto the lady I love so dearly. I still love her very much till this day. This book I suggest ever one gave it a good look even if they are not buddhist. It also deals with family as well, A great book.. It touch my 'soul' and I shed tears and my heart ache knowing that I should read it sooner.
