Love and Peace,
If you don’t go within you go without.
Speech is of time, silence is of eternity.
Be the change that you wish to see in the world.
It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
___Henry David Thoreau
Silence is the language God speaks, and everything else is a bad translation…
What you think you become. What you feel you attract. What you imagine you create.
Accustom yourself continually to make many acts of love, for they enkindle and melt the soul.
___Saint Teresa of Avila
Learn to be still in body and mind, for where motion ceases, there begins the perception of God.
I will behold the person who now considers himself as my enemy to be in truth my divine brother hiding behind a veil of misunderstanding.
Beginningless time and the present moment are the same… You have only to understand that time has no real existence.
The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.
There is a soul force in the universe, which if we permit it will flow through us and produce miraculous results.
There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.
At certain moments, always unforeseen, I become happy… I look at the strangers near as if I had known them all my life… everything fills me with affection… It may be an hour before the mood passes, but latterly I seem to understand that I enter upon it the moment I cease to hate.
___ William Butler Yeats
Surrender-----what an amazingly powerful word. It often engenders the thought of weakness and cowardice. In my case, it required all the strength I had to be brave enough to follow the invisible into the unknown.
___Michael A. Singer
… I could see that the practice of surrender was actually done in two, very distinct steps: first, you let go of the personal reactions of like and dislike that form inside your mind and heart; and second, with the resultant sense of clarity, you simply look to see what is being asked of you by the situation unfolding in front of you.
___Michael A. Singer
The drop of water is only weak when it is removed from the ocean; replace it and it is as powerful as the ocean…If a portion of one unit excludes itself from the whole, it makes no difference to Principal Being, but it makes a vast difference to the unit. The ocean is not conscious of the removal of a drop of water, but the drop is very conscious of the ocean when it is returned…
