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.

~Tao te Ching, XXIX

. . . . When our wounds cease to be a source of shame,



Nobody escapes being wounded. We are all wounded people, whether physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. The main question is not, ‘How can we hide our wounds?’ so we don’t have to be embarrassed, but ‘How can we put our woundedness in the service of others?’ When our wounds cease to be a source of shame, and become a source of healing, we have become wounded healers.

~~Henri Nouwen

High recognitions . . . . Antarctic, the cosmic Anchor Point



“The Earth’s connecting point is located in the Antarctic, where the road leading to the cosmic network begins. That is why the Antarctic is the concentration point for so many great enteals*. Among these enteals are all those responsible for the Earth’s welfare. For instance, uninterrupted currents of pure filtered air are sent from the Antarctic over the whole world. It is because of these air currents which renew the atmosphere that people are still able to breathe in their polluted cities! Not only air, but also water inside the Earth, which forms the liquid circulation, is permanently renewed from the Antarctic. Other enteallic forces working in the Antarctic are responsible for keeping the magnetic fields surrounding the Earth unchanged and at the same level of intensity.” (The Birth of Mankind –

*Beings that look after Nature and the development of the stars)

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

Every good and perfect gift is from above



“Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of the heavenly
lights, who does not change like shifting shadows”


~ Bible(James 1:17).

I used to pray…..




“I used to pray that God would feed the hungry, or do this or that,
but now I pray that he will guide me to do whatever I’m supposed to do, what I can do.
I used to pray for answers, but now I’m praying for strength. I used to believe that prayer
changes things, but now I know that prayer changes us and we change things.”

Goodnight . . . . Day is dying in the west,



Day is dying in the west,
Heav’n is touching earth with rest,
Wait and worship while the night
Sets her evening lamps alight
Through all the sky.

Holy, holy, holy,
Lord God of Hosts!
Heav’n and earth are full of Thee!
Heav’n and earth are praising Thee,
O Lord, most high!

Lord of life, beneath the dome
Of the universe, Thy home,
Gather us, who seek Thy face,
To the fold of Thy embrace,
For Thou art nigh.

While the deepening shadows fall,
Heart of love, enfolding all,
Through the glory and the grace
Of the stars that veil Thy face,
Our hearts ascend.

– Mary A. Lathbury (1877-1879)
