Let Life Happen to You...


Let Life Happen to you. 
What should I say about your tendency to doubt your struggle 
or to harmonize your inner and outer life? 
My wish is ever strong that you find enough patience within you 
and enough simplicity to have faith. 
May you gain more and more trust in what is challenging 
and confidence in the solitude you bear. 
Let Life Happen to you. Believe Me: life is in the right in any case.
~Rainer Maria Rilke

In the Beginning...


Henry Meynell Rheam

In the beginning we receive help for free, 
let us say, but at some point, 
we will be asked to make some big effort. 
We will have to go beyond feminine dominance and inner considering, 
and DO what the school, 
the teaching or Spirit asks of us and maybe then we will reconcile..... 
and be one with our human form and Soul..... 
Integrate our higher and lower parts. 
Then we will marry the soul and we will live be happily ever after.

And Once You Have Tasted Flight...


And once you have tasted flight, 
you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, 
for there you have been and there you long to return.

~Leonardo Da Vinci

Love Means...


"Love means to reach for the sky 
and with every breath to tear a hundred veils. 
Love means to step away from the ego, 
to open the eyes of inner vision 
and not to take this world so seriously." 
~Rumi

Yesterday I Was in Contact...



Yesterday I was in contact with so many students, 
and with each my state was given a lift. 
Until at the end of the day I suddenly received a gift
 of REMEMBERING the single most important thing to me ... 
the necessity of surrender.
The importance of having faith in the benevolence, 
and the mysterious plan of the divine. 
When my I's are like acrobats, 
making a show of all my fears and worst case scenarios, 
it seems necessary time and time to re-learn surrender. 
And yesterday, several students helped me get there.

The Work is Constant...



The work is constant, 
we cannot take a break from it. 
Our fellow students are the guardian angels of our work.

I Really Love This Image...


 I really Love this image of the hands 
very gently coming together, 
it really evokes the tenderness 
of giving up ones will to something higher, 
which I feel prayer really represents.
