Riches of spirits beautify the human countenance

Riches of spirits beautify the human countenance

and let arise compassion and respect.

In every being the spirit expresses itself in the eyes,

in the expression and in all gestures and movements

of the body. Our appearance, our words, our

deeds are never greater than we are ourselves.

For the soul is our dwelling; our eyes

our window; and our words their emissaries.


Khalil Gibran

When a Culture Of Ladies arises

Men and woman are equal under Spiritual Law though they have been designated different
tasks in Creation. A genuine feminine woman is spiritually and intuitively stronger than the
man and her task is too pass on her higher spiritual influence/energy – which in turn can
inspire the man in his activity towards what is noble, True and beautiful.

I must try to be alone for part of each year…

I must try to be alone for part of each year… 
and part of each day… 
in order to keep my core, my center… 
Women must be still as the axis of a wheel 
in the midst of her activities. 
She must be the pioneer of achieving this stillness, 
not only for her own salvation, but for the salvation 
of family life, of society, perhaps even of our civilization.

Sunday reflection . . . . The realm is a sacred vessel

Whoever takes hold of the realm
And wants to manipulate it
Will have no peace.
The realm is a sacred vessel
That should not be interfered with.
Whoever touches it will spoil it.
Whoever grasps it will lose it.
Some lead and some follow,
Some breathe easily, some breathe hard,
Some are strong and some are weak,
Some destroy: some are destroyed.
So the wise avoid excess,
Avoid the pompous, and the arrogant.

Mandala and Recycled Art Inspiration

Life itself calls for us to recognize its unity. 

It needs our respect, our participation, 

our awareness for its

immanent unity. It is its essential nature, the light in life

itself, its meaning, that holds this fine web of

interweaved relations together.

High recognitions . . . . Rivers of power flowing everywhere.

Rivers of power flowing everywhere.

Fields of magnetism relating everything.
This is your origin. This is your lineage.

The current of creation is right here,
Coursing through subtle channels,
Animating this very form. 

Follow the gentle touch of life,
Soft as the footprint of an ant, As tiny sensations open to vastness.

Power sings as it flows,
Electrifies the organs of sensing,
Becomes liquid light, Nourishes your entire being.

Celebrate the boundary Where streams join the sea,
Where body meets infinity.

~Lorin Roche, The Radiance Sutras

The simple path:

The simple path;
silence is prayer,
prayer is faith,
faith is love,
love is service.
The fruit of service
is peace..
