The heart has an ” inner eye ” …..


” 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
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

#FridayFantasy . . . Win without fighting.


“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.

…if the journey you have chosen


“…if the journey you have chosen is indeed a pilgrimage,
a soulful journey, it will be rigorous.
Ancient wisdom suggests if you aren’t trembling as you approach the sacred,
it isn’t the real thing.
The sacred, in its various guises as holy ground, art, or knowledge,
evokes emotion and commotion.”

#High recognitions . . . What we call our destiny


“What we call our destiny is truly our character
and that character can be altered.
The knowledge that we are responsible for our actions and attitudes
does not need to be discouraging, because it also means that we are free to change this destiny.
One is not in bondage to the past, which has shaped our feelings, to race, inheritance, background.
All this can be altered if we have the courage to examine how it formed us.
We can alter the chemistry provided we have the courage to dissect the elements.”

~ Anaïs Nin (shared by Éva Patus)

and Rumi spoke . . .


Rumi’s answer to questions asked by a disciple –

What is Poison?
He replied with a beautiful answer – Anything which is more than our necessity is Poison. It may be Power, Wealth, Hunger, Ego, Greed, Laziness, Love, Ambition, Hate or anything
What is fear…..?
Non acceptance of uncertainty.
If we accept that uncertainty, it becomes adventure…!
What is envy ?
Non acceptance of good in others
If we accept that good, it becomes inspiration…!
What is Anger?
Non acceptance of things which are beyond our control.
If we accept, it becomes tolerance…!
What is hatred?
Non acceptance of person as he is.
If we accept person unconditionally, it becomes love…!
