Know, the true nature of your Beloved.
In His loving eyes, your every thought,
Word and movement is always –
Always Beautiful.

I wish something very much like this for all of us this year.

"Now is the time

for you to deeply compute

the impossibility

that there is anything

but Grace."

~ Hafiz/Ladinsky The Gift p.160

Where the flame of Love rises, the knowledge of God unfolds itself.

Dear moon,
Now that your love is maturing,
We need to sit together
Close like this more often.

"I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being."

"The path to the Truth is a labour of the heart, not of the head. Make your heart your primary guide! Not your mind. Meet, challenge and ultimately prevail over your nafs (fears, worries, doubts, attachments, etc) with your heart. Knowing your ego will lead you to the knowledge of God."

If you want to strengthen your faith, you will need to soften inside...
For your faith to be rock solid, your heart needs to be as soft as feather.

I once asked a bird, how is it that you fly in this gravity of darkness?
She responded, 'love lifts me.'
