[We Tend To Have A Limited Concept Of Spiritual Death As Saying No Only To Things We Want Or Covet -- Our Guilty Pleasures And Selfish Ambitions. But In Reality, It Means Dying Inwardly To Whatever Has Control Over Us. The Thing That Really Controls Us May Not Be What We Want. It May Be What We Fear. Fear Can Dominate Our Lives Just As Strongly As Desire.]

Quotes About Addiction And Love

"Allowing attachments to people/things create a compulsive addiction in us to be controlling. This "control" (fueled by fear of loss) fools us into a false sense of security and love. At first glance, it is common to confuse the idea of Conscious Detachment with non-feeling or being cold, however learning this skill is a giant leap towards enlightenment. When you consciously detach from an object or a loved one, you empower them to exist at their potential. From this perspective, just being in their presence fosters feelings of love and admiration that far exceed any relationship that is limited with expectations, confinement and control" - Author: Gary Hopkins

Quotes About Slowly Falling In Love

"Slowly, even though I thought it would never happen, New York lost its charm for me. I remember arriving in the city for the first time, passing with my parents through the First Worlds Club bouncers at Immigration, getting into a massive cab that didnt have a moment to waste, and falling in love as soon as we shot onto the bridge and I saw Manhattan rise up through the looks of parental terror reflected in the window. I lost my virginity in New York, twice (the second one wanted to believe he was the first so badly). I had my mind blown open by the combination of a liberal arts education and a drug-popping international crowd. I became tough. I had fun. I learned so much.But now New York was starting to feel empty, a great party that had gone on too long and was showing no sign of ending soon. I had a headache, and I was tired. Id danced enough. I wanted a quiet conversation with someone who knew what load-shedding was." - Author: Mohsin Hamid
