I believe that God is in me as the sun is in the color and fragrance of a flower — the light in my darkness, the Voice in my silence.
- Helen Keller
Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of the peace of the world.
– Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Are you willing to be sponged out, erased, canceled, made nothing?
Are you willing to be made nothing? Dipped into oblivion?
If not, you will never really change. – D.H. Lawrence
Trying to bring about change in your life by being aggressive, by ‘taking charge’ shows a somewhat self-centered attitude about change. We must surrender, move beyond our compulsion to control, if we are to bring about lasting change. We yield. We allow ourselves to be helped. We prepare the vessel. We allow change to overtake us. We earnestly seek to do our part, and change comes!
It comes — not when we say we deserve it, but when we are ready to accept it.
Today, I surrender again. Each day I learn to surrender and grow deeper.
Open our eyes to your presence
Open our minds to your grace
Open our lips to your praises
Open our hearts to your love
Open our lives to your healing
And be found among us.
by David Adam, from Tides and Seasons, England
The affairs of the world will go on forever. Do not delay the practice of meditation. – Milarepa
There will Always be stuff to do, it never ends. We become weak and lose vitality as we grow older, so don’t wait till later to venture on the spiritual path.
Each one of us has to undertake his own journey and we do it in our own unique way. But those who put all heart into prayer and meditation progress faster towards the goal.
Pray, meditate Now. Spend a few minutes, praying here and now, as you sit at your computer.
