6 Relationship Lessons From Spiritual Masters

Spiritual Guidance

Spiritual masters are not always thought to have much to say about relationships- but their advice is there if you look for it.
Theses quotes will help improve any relationship, friendship or otherwise!

“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” -Buddha

To truly love another, you must first love yourself.
Without that love, you can’t necessarily give to another person in a complete way.

“The more you are motivated by love, the more fearless and free your actions will be.” – Dalai Lama

When you give love without an expectation to receive anything in return, you’re truly embracing a deeper sense of freedom.
This is because you’re not attached to outcomes- just to uplifting and helping.
All kinds of people are attracted to that…especially loved ones.

“Love is the song of the soul singing to God.  It is the balanced rhythmic dance of planets – sun and moon lit.” – Paramahansa Yogananda

Love is a natural state of our being.
No matter down-and-out you may feel, or disappointed in someone’s actions you may be, do your best to come back to love over and over again.
This way, you’ll always be happy.

“Beauty is simply reality seen with the eyes of love” – Tagore

When we feel love in our inner most being, we see a deeper level beauty all around us.
Everything is better, especially our connection with others.

“Through love one acquires renunciation and discrimination naturally.” – Ramakrishna

True love- selfless love- isn’t blind.
In fact, it’s intelligent.
It helps lend new perspective to people, places, and things. It helps you see situations in a new and better light.

“When love overflows and is expressed through every word & deed, we call it compassion. That is the goal of religion.” – Amma

There isn’t a way to love that doesn’t uplift others and yourself.
Saturating every act with love brings a renewed sense of self to everything we do, and causes us to automatically command a deeper respect of others.
Any partner or friend that feels that can completely change their attitude toward us.
