And the beggar turned into an angel.

A monk was meditating in the desert when a beggar came up to him and said:
“I need to eat”.
The monk – who was almost reaching the point of perfect harmony with the spiritual world – did not answer.
“I need to eat”, insisted the beggar.
“Go to the town and ask someone else. Can’t you see that you are bothering me? I am trying to communicate with the angels”.

“God placed himself lower than men, washed their feet, gave His life, and no-one
recognized Him”, the beggar replied. “He who says he loves God –
who does not see – and forgets his brother – – – is lying”.
And the beggar turned into an angel.
“What a pity, you almost made it”, he remarked before leaving.

– Paulo Coelho (The Beggar and the Monk)

Sunday reflection . . . I am that which has emerged from the fire.

32977031_1325577837541718_3918310062984003584_n

 

 

I do not define myself by how many
roadblocks have appeared in my path.
I define myself by the courage I’ve
found to forge new roads.

I do not define myself by how many
disappointments I’ve faced.
I define myself by the forgiveness
and the faith I have found to begin
again.

I do not define myself by how long
a relationship lasted.
I define myself by how much I have
loved, and been willing to love again.

I do not define myself by how many
times I have been knocked down.
I define myself by how many times
I have struggled to my feet.

I am not my pain.
I am not my past.
I am that which has
emerged from the fire.

“You earthmen are in this Creation to find supreme happiness!
In the living language which God speaks to you!
And to understand this Language, to learn it,
and to sense inwardly the Will of God in it,
that is your goal during your journey through Creation.”

~ “The Grail Message” (In The Light of Truth) by Abd-ru-shin

“In the imminent future, mankind will be at the mercy
of the forces of nature, unable to confront or escape them.
Only those who spiritually change for the better will merit
protection from these forces. For them, God’s Grace is a certainty.”

– Roselis von Sass
The writer draws inspiration from “The Grail Message” (In The Light of Truth) by Abd-ru-shin

Grail Thoughts . . . Heed your word!

31963988_889635284570333_8740937962725834752_n

 

 

“Heed your word!
Do not talk merely for the
sake of talking.
And speak only when,
where and how it is necessary!
In the human word there shall
be a reflection of the splendour
of the Word of God,
which is Life and will eternally
remain Life.”

~ “The Grail Message” (In The Light of Truth) by Abd-ru-shin

Sunday reflection . . . Prayer of an Anonymous Abbess

31933151_2077305945617540_7478781214850023424_n

 

 

“Prayer of an Anonymous Abbess:
Lord, thou knowest better than myself that I am growing older and will soon be
old. Keep me from becoming too talkative, and especially from the unfortunate
habit of thinking that I must say something on every subject and at every
opportunity…..
Teach me the glorious lesson that occasionally I may be wrong.
Keep me reasonably gentle. I do not have the ambition to become a saint —
Make me sympathetic without being sentimental, helpful but not bossy.
Let me discover merits where I had not expected them, and talents
in people whom I had not thought to possess any. And,
Lord, give me the grace to tell them so.

Amen ”

– Margot Benary-Isbert
