Place

 

focus word: place

Now is a dwelling place, a space. Wherever you go, it can be your home, a place of awareness, a place where Divine can be felt. Present moment. Eternal moment.

The heart is a space from which one can call upon Divine 24/7.

Reminds me of Jesus’ words about place: “The last will be first, and the first will be last.”

Align Divine, and all will  be fine, will fall into place.

Humility

 

“It is God’s power that carries us through every moment. If we are aware of this, we will spontaneously be humble, our attitude towards the Almighty will be transformed into an attitude of worship, our focus on Him will blossom with our every step and we will be successful in our efforts.”

—Amma, “Awaken Children”

Prayers for Peace

 

 

 

This was a video taken on New Year’s Eve a few years ago. Halved lemons were scooped and replaced with oil and a wick. We placed the lit oil lamps into the pond with prayers for peace and happiness.

 

“There is a light that shines beyond all things on earth, beyond us all, beyond the heavens, beyond the highest, the very highest heavens. This is the light that shines in our heart.”

– Upanishads

 

“We can be mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord.”

—2 Corinthians 3:18, The Living Bible

 

“Swift As A Star Flicker

Prayer, it does ascend
Up from the mind into the air
Through the highest cumulus
In an orange dusky sky

And higher still, like a tailed comet
Out of earth’s realm of spiraling starlights
And into the black of space,
And higher still

Past a rare jeweled galaxy
With stars like sapphires, rubies, emeralds and diamonds
Where a nebulous cloud, a violet mountain births
Explodes new stars forth

A factory place, a sandcastle of space
And higher still,
To the top of the highest universe-
That second sky

Swift as a star flicker
To God’s ear
An ear pressed close to the keyhole
Of that other Kingdom’s door

An ear so fine
That it can hear
Unspoken prayer clear
As a trumpet’s mighty blare

And God’s spirit reaches forth
Heaven descends
To companion the soul
That prays.”

—Zellie M. Quinn

This Moment Is Yours

 

collage, present moment

 

“Look to this day, for it is life, the very life of life! In its brief course lie all the verities and all the realities of your existence: the bliss of growth; the glory of action; the splendor of beauty. For yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision. But today well-lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore to this day!”

– Hindu Scriptures

 

This is a collaborative collage I did with my friends  for Amma’s Circle of Love Letters a few years ago….

Weaving Golden Gauze for the Setting Sun

 

“There brews He beautiful water! And beautiful it always is! You see it glistening in the dewdrop; you hear it singing in the summer rain; you see it sparkling in the ice gem when the trees seem loaded with rich jewels!… dancing in the hailstorm, leaping, foaming, dashing…! See how it weaves a golden gauze for the setting sun, and a silvery tissue for the midnight moon! ”

-John Bartholomew Gough

Inner Sovereingty, Knowing How to Live Alone

 

the frame of the present moment
is free from worries,
a place where your heart is undivided
and free to live life fully in all its richness and glory
a place of stillness, as the mind
stops running into the past and future
a place of growing wisdom,
as mindfulness and breath awareness is practiced
a place of healing,
a final destination for your burdens of the past
it is your kingdom, queendom,
a place where the powers of
love, peace, beauty and understanding reign
a place where you can breathe with ease and be nourished
it is a gift for you every moment
