Renouncing worldliness does not mean,…

22309091_1516085518458450_2075578139553613781_n

” Renouncing worldliness
does not mean,
for instance, that one becomes naked,
wearing only loin cloth
and sitting (in solitude).
Renouncing worldliness means,
instead, to wear clothes and ….
to take food while at the same time
keeping in continuous use
whatever comes to hand,
feeling no inclination to hoard
… and no attachment
to material objects.
That disposition alone
is tantamount to renouncing
…. worldliness. ”

– Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti

. . . and that is the only reason you are here.

“God is love. God does not have needs. God does not argue.
God does not make threats. God does not feel abandoned.
The only thing that God does is love you
and that is the only reason you are here.”

~ Iyanla Vanzant

Sunday reflection . . . Blessed is the person who finds wisdom,

21427190_1586108378131167_8333439076957196527_o

“Blessed is the person who finds wisdom,
the person who gains understanding,
for she is more profitable than silver
and yields better returns than gold.
She is more precious than rubies;
nothing you desire can compare with her.”

~Proverbs 3:13-15(Bible)

Be whole: desire and journey to the Whole.

“The home we seek is in eternity;
The Truth we seek is like a shoreless sea,
Of which your paradise is but a drop.
This ocean can be yours; why should you stop
Beguiled by dreams of evanescent dew?
The secrets of the sun are yours, but you
Content yourself with motes trapped in its beams.
Turn to what truly lives, reject what seems —
Which matters more, the body or the soul?
Be whole: desire and journey to the Whole.”

~ Farid al-Din Attar,

The heart has an ” inner eye ” …..

18839079_1398215633578773_3289312333423176658_n

” Heart is the symbol
of the rational aspect of man
but not the same as intellect.

It is a part of the ” universal reason “.
The heart has an ” inner eye ” …..
that can perceive reality.

However the evil thoughts
…. of the lower soul needs …..
of the material world

…. can easily blind …. this ” inner eye “.

– Muhiy d- Din Ibn ‘Arabi

unfold thyself gently gradually . . .

“unfold thyself
gently
gradually
like a mystical origami swan
spread wide thy glistening wings
release thy glorious splendour
shimmering lights
celestial sounds
thou art resplendent soul
child of God
beautiful,… forever free”

~ Sri Gawn Tu Fahr

“Your strength is in your calmness, in the clarity of your mind.
Strength comes from putting the negative aside without reacting.
Win in calmness, in consciousness, in balance.
Win without fighting.
