Into the Dark Alone?…

We sense there is some sort of spirit that loves birds and the animals and the ants- Perhaps the same one who gave a radiance to you in you mother’s womb. Is it logical you would be walking around entirely orphaned now?? The truth is you turned away yourself, And decided to go into the dark...

Love’s Camel

“Beware of confining yourself to a particular belief and denying all else, for much good would elude you – indeed, the knowledge of reality would elude you. Be in yourself a matter for all forms of belief, for God is too vast and tremendous to be restricted to one belief rather than another.” “My heart has become capable of every form: It is a pasture for gazelles And a monastery for...

HeartSpace

The little space within the heart is as great as this vast universe. The heavens and the earth are there, and the sun, and the moon, and the stars; fire and lightning and winds are there; and all that now is and all that is not: for the whole universe is in Him and He dwells within our heart.   ...
