Inspirations

Oneness

When there is no self, there is no other

 – Jean Klein

Faith and reason

Faith and reason are not enemies.  I don’t trust a theologian who dismisses the beauty of science or a scientist who doesn’t believe in the power of mystery.

 – Brene Brown

A remarkable tapestry

It is an audacious notion to put forth in this age of science and wilful determination that one’s existence is somehow inspired, guided, and even managed by unseen forces outside our control. Whether called fate, destiny, or the hand of God, slender threads are at work bringing coherence and continuity to our lives. Over time they weave a remarkable tapestry. These are the mysterious forces that guide us and shape who we are.

– Robert Johnson

Welcoming

It is in welcoming every moment of life – grief and joy, shame and potency, sadness and happiness, fear and safety – that we are able to go beyond pairs of opposites into our true resolution as freedom

– Richard Miller

… what every other eye in this world is dying to Hear

I just love these words about giving love when it is what we all most desire:

Admit something: Everyone you see, you say to them, “Love me.” Of course you do not do this out loud; otherwise, someone would call the police. Still though, think about this, this great pull in us to connect. Why not become the one who lives with a full moon in each eye that is always saying, with that sweet moon language, what every other eye in this world is dying to Hear.

– Hafiz, The Gift
