#TenderTuesday . . . . His heart was like a sensitive plant

“His heart was like a sensitive plant, that opens for a moment in the sunshine,
but curls up and shrinks into itself at the slightest touch of the finger,
or the lightest breath of wind.”

Quote from “The Tenant of Wildfell Hall,” by Anne Brontë, 1848.

The plain fact…

“The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people.
But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers,
storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well
in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight
to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little
do with success as we have defined it.”

And if tonight my soul may find her peace in sleep…

“And if tonight my soul may find her peace in sleep,
and sink in good oblivion, and in the morning wake
like a new-opened flower then I have been dipped
again in God, and new-created.”

In the very nature of every human being

” In the very nature of every human being has been sown the
seed of the ability to love. You and I ought to welcome this seed,

In the depths of your hopes and desires…

“In the depths of your hopes and desires lies your
silent knowledge of the beyond;
And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow your
heart dreams of spring.
Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to

…. if spiritual intuition were in charge.

The intellect takes care of complicating whatever genuinely simple,
making it as difficult as possible. By doing so, the earthly human
being, its prisoner, remains immersed in the illusion of his ability
in solving “complex problems” that would not even exist if
spiritual intuition were in charge.

2020: Vision ❣️ Strength Courage and Wisdom

” You must be ready in mind, body, and spirit before you can make a change. People cannot
convince you to do it. You cannot force you to do it. Everything you think, say, and do until
that happens is just preparation. So love yourself right now. Honor yourself. Keep talking to
yourself. Keep thinking ready thoughts. In the meantime, try to remember you will not be
ready until you are ready.”

High recognitions . . . . they use the word of love as a cloak

“The human beings are no longer interested in the love that originates
in the Firmament of Eternity, where, only happiness comes from! No…
They want debasement… and desecration! And to make their guilt even worse,
they use the word of love as a cloak, under which they hide their animalistic appetites!” 

– Roselis von Sass (The Unknown Babylon)
