And the beggar turned into an angel.

A monk was meditating in the desert when a beggar came up to him and said:
“I need to eat”.
The monk – who was almost reaching the point of perfect harmony with the spiritual world – did not answer.
“I need to eat”, insisted the beggar.
“Go to the town and ask someone else. Can’t you see that you are bothering me? I am trying to communicate with the angels”.

“God placed himself lower than men, washed their feet, gave His life, and no-one
recognized Him”, the beggar replied. “He who says he loves God –
who does not see – and forgets his brother – – – is lying”.
And the beggar turned into an angel.
“What a pity, you almost made it”, he remarked before leaving.

– Paulo Coelho (The Beggar and the Monk)

And the world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles,

“And the world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles,
no matter how long, but only by a spiritual journey,
a journey of one inch, very arduous and humbling and joyful,
by which we arrive at the ground at our own feet,
and learn to be at home.”

~ Wendell Berry

Sunday reflection . . . I am that which has emerged from the fire.

I do not define myself by how many
roadblocks have appeared in my path.
I define myself by the courage I’ve
found to forge new roads.

I do not define myself by how many
disappointments I’ve faced.
I define myself by the forgiveness
and the faith I have found to begin
again.

I do not define myself by how long
a relationship lasted.
I define myself by how much I have
loved, and been willing to love again.

I do not define myself by how many
times I have been knocked down.
I define myself by how many times
I have struggled to my feet.

I am not my pain.
I am not my past.
I am that which has
emerged from the fire.

Good qualities, such as true love for others, . . .

“Good qualities, such as true love for others, trust, fairness,
happiness, gratefulness, empathy, and love for the Truth
all generate harmonious vibrations within the solar plexus,
bringing well-being to the entire nervous system and the body as a whole.”

– Roselis von Sass
The writer draws inspiration from “The Grail Message” (In The Light of Truth) by Abd-ru-shin

Your profession is . . .

“Your profession is not what brings home your paycheck.
Your profession is what you were put on Earth to do
with such passion and such intensity that
it becomes spiritual in calling.”

~Vincent Van Gogh

When the goal is fair, pure, and true, . . .

When the goal is fair, pure, and true,
obstacles are no impediment of any kind.
Rather, they only rekindle the will
to achieve the desired goal.
