There is a light in this world,

19095265_1727194867294142_2140776366412898373_o

“There is a light in this world, a healing spirit
more powerful than any darkness we may encounter.
We sometimes lose sight of this force when there is suffering, too much pain.
Then suddenly, the spirit will emerge through the lives of ordinary people
who hear a call and answer in extraordinary ways.”

― Mother Teresa

I like to exchange whispered conversations with God
before I venture out into world..

Sunday reflections . . . I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.

15349599_722667994557789_3130536003207745354_n

THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE
Three words quite familiar to  Christians, regardless of religious organization or sect they belong to. For, in listening to these words, they instantly remind Christians of the known sentences of Jesus, recorded in the Gospel of John:

“I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (Jo14:6)

And then they keep in their hearts the most immediate interpretation of those words, which is that only the followers of Christianity will be able to reach Heaven.
And, naturally, that the members of their own Christian institution are the ones who will reach it more safely.
Such is a thought not much different from the one cherished by the Pharisees at the time of Jesus…

However, these meaningful words of the Son of God are much deeper than they seem at first sight…….”

Grail Thoughts #27 . . . motherhood exists for your earthly body only, that is all!

19143993_1229889863804579_572440573215716355_o

“Womanhood, by virtue of her innate abilities
such as a razor sharp intuition/ keen gaze
and her God given role in creation…
stands on a pedestal, a prescribed height…….in The Light of the Creator.

She is to serve as a mediator to mankind….
showing the right way to go,……
Genuine womanhood, is the…sight of Humanity.
But….she must occupy her pedestal to fulfill this duty aright.

P.S
The Grail Message is crystal clear on the true and noble role of Womanhood.”

our spirits remain as youthful and vigorous as when we were in full bloom.

“Age has no reality except in the physical world.
The essence of a human being is resistant
to the passage of time. Our inner lives are eternal,
which is to say that our spirits remain as youthful
and vigorous as when we were in full bloom.
Think of love as a state of grace,
not the means to anything, but the alpha and omega.
An end in itself.”

~ Gabriel García Márquez

Cling to your real self, …. quit this …. dual self.

19059244_1406915652708771_2183582456407559986_n

” The truth is …. yourself, …..
but not ….
your mere bodily self, ….

Your real self …. is higher than ‘you’ and ‘me ‘.
This visible ‘you’ which you fancy to be yourself
Is limited in place, …. the real self is not limited.

Why, …. O pearl, ….
linger you trembling in your shell?
Esteem not yourself mere sugar-cane,
…. but real sugar.

This outward you …. is foreign ….
to your ….
…. real you; ….

Cling to your real self, ….. quit this ….

…… dual self. ”

– Mewlana RUMI

Grail Thoughts #26 . . . Marriages are made in heaven

18738490_1210618355731730_1885002592741369261_o (1)

“Marriage is for….two individuals who are certain, sure and confident in who they are. When a man and a woman are joined in matrimony….this does not transform them to Siamese twins.

Marital union is not about a burdensome dependency but a liberating complementarity and cooperation.

Too often…especially for the womenfolk, their true personalities after marriage….practically disappear. Their husband’s and children become some kind of reference point for her existence and value.

” I am the Lord Thy God thou shalt have no other God’s but me”

It is a sin to bury your personality…talents and gifts…because you got married and became parents. You, disobey the Creator, shortchange your spouse, children and humanity.

Marriage should actually make the man and woman blossom radiantly even more. Their spiritual progress as a couple is a steady continuum.

Husbands who still hold the view that the origin of their wives is a piece of bone….are the most possessive and territorial…..

P.S: The Grail Message must be read in Perfect sequence.”
