waking up, a path of love…

A religious awakening which does not awaken the sleeper to love has roused him in vain. 

~ Jessamyn West

part of what i’ve found so moving about the Buddhist path, is the emphasis on love which is manifest in non-harming, in reducing and ending suffering. we see an emphasis on ethics in the Precepts and an emphasis on cultivating the heart along with the mind, a union from which wisdom can arise.
