Patience...



We live in an era of very fast communication and want instant solutions to our problems. But sometimes this process of acceptance takes a while, so we embrace patience if we can, moving on in our lives, being present and allowing space and time for the understanding to come which enables us to accept that which is "hard to swallow".

Worlds Open Up.....




We have so much knowledge and opinions
about things that it is sometimes very challenging
 to truly allow higher impressions 
to pierce us as deeply as they could.
So much of this process is learning to
"get out of our own way."  
When we do,
 the Worlds open up
to us.

Ode to Solitary Silence With Joy



Ode to Solitary Silence With Joy

Just as bees gather honey, so we collect from all that what happens
is sweetest -. and we build Him Even with the littlest, Most
insignificant thing, when it comes from love, we begin. We begin
with effort and the rest follows That effort, With silence or to
solitary joy, with everything we do alone without anyone to join or
help us, we begin Him who we will not live to see, any more than
Could our ancestors experience us. Yet They are in us, Those long
departed ones, They are in our inclinations, our moral burdens, our
pulsing blood, and in gestures That Arise from the depths of time.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke

The Voice of the Heart...



Everyone can be happy, but some feel happy and some feel miserable. Constantly Those who want something will never feel happy. Misery is bound to Accompany wanting. Those who never want for themselves but for others, they can feel happy.  Why? Because they want others to feel happy. God, Who is in everything and everyone, is deaf to the formal rituals, ceremonies, prayers, in mosques, churches, temples, but He hears the voice of the heart. When you help others, God knows instantly and is pleased. No amount of prayer or meditation can do what helping others can do.

Enter the Temple...



"The ability for the Soul to enter the temple is bestowed on it by an Angel. One cannot enter these regions by the power of ones loins etc. It is a gift! Did you really think we could enter this temple willy-nilly? It is the reward for becoming free of nature, of creatures and their worlds. It is entering the world of the Soul.
