“The true Love, which comes from the heavenly realm, can never die.
It will withstand all storms, all temptations, all powers.
It will not vary, either to the right hand or to the left.”

– The Gospel of Thomas (Gnostic texts found in Egypt in 1945)

December Contemplation . . . One Solitary Life…!!!

He was born in an obscure village
He worked in a carpenter’s shop until He was 30
He never wrote a book, He never held an office
He never had a family or owned a house
He did none of those things usually associated with greatness
He had no credentials but himself.
He was only 33 when the tide of public opinion turned against Him.

His friends ran away
He was turned over to His enemies and went through the mockery of a trial.
He was nailed to a cross between two thieves.

While He was dying His executioners gambled for the only property He had on earth – His clothing
When He was dead, He was laid in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend.

TWENTY CENTURIES HAVE COME AND GONE,

AND TODAY
HE IS THE CENTRAL FIGURE OF THE HUMAN RACE.
ALL THE ARMIES THAT EVER MARCHED,
ALL THE NAVIES THAT EVER SAILED,
ALL THE PARLIAMENTS THAT EVER SAT,
AND ALL THE KINGS THAT EVER REIGNED,
HAVE NOT AFFECTED THE LIFE OF MAN ON THIS EARTH,

AS THAT……….ONE SOLITARY LIFE

. . . trust in an unfolding we can’t design or ordain.

“An ordinary favor we do for someone or any compassionate reaching out
may seem to be going nowhere at first, but may be planting a seed we can’t see right now. Sometimes we need to just do the best we can
and then trust in an unfolding we can’t design or ordain.”

“Never lose a holy curiosity. Stop every day to understand and appreciate a little of the mystery that surrounds you and your life will be filled with awe and discovery to the very end.”

Even on the spiritual path, . . .

“Even on the spiritual path, things are not always going to be rosy.
There will be difficult situations and people,
bad days, and hard times all along the way.
You have moments, days, sometimes weeks when you will doubt yourself.
Just know, it is all part of the process.”

~ Iyanla Vanzant

Wisdom from Past Era . . . a feeling of confidence bonded the Incas…

23130488_1950818401852924_5816675277791956681_n

“…a feeling of confidence bonded the Incas to each another—
a feeling that did not weaken with unpleasant happenings, but grew stronger.
Ambition, covetousness, and lies were unknown to the Incas;
their distinct sense of justice prevented them
from acting incorrectly toward others.”

– Roselis von Sass(The Truth About the Incas)

High recognitions . . . keeping the flame of a pure ideal alive in the soul,

22789142_890061097818477_6973437454800653244_n

 

Sometimes the silent introspection of a person
is taken as coldness of character, when in fact it
may be just the fuel by which the flame of a pure ideal
is kept alive in that soul, illuminating the paths of the spirit
in the process of development.
