The Flame of Love

“Love (and passion altogether) can be based either on the central reference point of ego or on a more centerless approach that is beyond ego. There is a vast store of energy that is not ego’s energy at all. It is the energy of the primeval background, which permeates whatever is going on. This energy has a consuming quality, an ever-burning quality, like that of the sun. This vast power goes on and on and on, leaving no room to manipulate, leaving no room for confusion or ignorance or panic or doubt. Passion is a very powerful thing.”

From “The Flame of Love,” excerpted from pages 113 to 117 in Work, Sex, Money: Real Life on the Path of Mindfulness by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.
