Enlightenment happens when one becomes selfless

It happens when one can love his wife exactly as he loves his sisters

What is so special in our giving? Nothing is

The simple reason is that the sun shines for the beings of earth

Give what you have but let you not be seen by men

But look at you in you for that body is not you but the tool of your loving and giving

Enlightenment is attained when there are no favorites in our lives

It happens when we love watching football more than watching in waits as the others loses

It happens when we give all that we are

What are we? We are the extension of love

This love is not the usual pinky kind of thing

It is the ever-living presence of another within us

How can I dare than sleep when this child is dying in my arms?

Let us think harder, if I did it in my name you would have felt my desire to please you

But if what I am doing is with a desire to build a world where you and I can live, take it for you and do as you please but never forget that it doesn't belong to me as much as it doesn't belong to you for it belongs to all of us

If your love for god is above his creation you know him not

But if you see the perfection in the imperfection of this world than you have found the fountain of life

Now ask me or ask you where is the sting of death?

For our immortality is achieved in not what we have gained physically but in what we have lightened up in the hearts of life in general

just like this gorillas refusing to let go of love for all
