The Prophet on Love

When love beckons to you, follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you believe in him, Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden. For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for...

Inspiration

Inspiration

Inspiration is disturbing. She does not believe in guarantees or insurance or strict schedules. She is not interested in how well you write your grant proposal or what you do for a living or why you are too busy to see her. She will be there when you need her but you have to take it on trust. Surrender. She knows when you need her better than you do. —J. Ruth...

A Good Place…

There is a magical moment when we recognize that the point is not to search outside ourselves. The more we suffer, the clearer it becomes: Everything we are in search of will disappoint us. There are no perfect beings, no perfect jobs, no perfect apartments. And thus the search always ends at the same place, and the name of this place is disappointment. A good place. Charlotte Joko Beck –...

Gift From The Sea

When you love someone, you do not love them all the time, in exactly the same way, from moment to moment. It is an impossibility. It is even a lie to pretend to. And yet this is exactly what most of us demand. We have so little faith in the ebb and flow of life, of love, of relationships. We leap at the flow of the tide and resist in terror its ebb. We are afraid it will never return. We insist...

If You Listen

If you listen Not to the pages or preachers But to the smallest flower Growing from a crack In your heart, You will hear a great song Moving across a wide ocean Whose water is the music Connecting all the islands Of the universe together, And touching all You will feel it Touching you Around you Embracing you With light. – John...

To See as God Sees

It is your destiny to see as God sees, to know as God knows, to feel as God feels. How is this possible?  How? Because Divine love cannot defy its very self. Divine love will be eternally true to its own being, and its being is giving all it can, at the perfect moment. And the greatest gift God can give is His own experience, Every object, every creature, every man, woman and child has a soul...

To Become Concious…

Truths that fly with the heart by Linaji To become conscious of ourselves as a body is to become conscious of mankind as one. Love is not something to be attained; it is the reality in which we exist. What is necessary is conversion, realization, enlightenment. I can operate from the viewpoint that I am me, you are you, the earth is the earth, and that’s the way it is. I can conceive of...
