Essence of Breema: 16 October, 2018

Everything exists to support everything that exists. This is the direction that leads to true happiness. Not happiness because of “this” or “that”—happiness that’s free from “this” or “that.” When you taste your own existence, it’s as if all your desires are fulfilled. You become free from desire, and therefore, free from fear. Fear and desire are two banks of the river. But the reality of life flows moment after moment, like the water in a river. When we jump into the water, we become free from the banks of the river. What we see doesn’t bother us, because we are in the flow of eternity.
