Reflect Essence of Beauty

 

“Let our souls turn into a mirror longing to reflect the essence of beauty”- Rumi

 

“Having a selfless attitude will uplift us. By helping others we are, in fact, helping ourselves. On the other hand, every time we do a selfish action, we are harming ourselves. Learn to bless everyone. Don’t ever curse anyone, because a human being is not just a bundle of flesh and blood. There is consciousness at work within everyone. That consciousness is not a separate, isolated entity; it is part of the whole, a Supreme Unity. Whatever we do is reflected in the Whole, in the one Universal Mind – and it returns to you with the same intensity. Whenever you do a good or bad action, it is reflected in the Universal Consciousness. Therefore, learn to be selfless and learn how to send blessings to everyone. Pray for everyone, because we need the support and blessings of all of Creation for our upliftment. When we pray for others the entire universe prays for us; and when we bless others the whole universe blesses us, because man is one with the cosmic energy.”—Amma, Awaken Children, Vol. VIII

Influence

 

I have found that surrounding myself by supportive people can give me much strength when I am feeling weak. The collective group energy can be very palpable. When I don’t have enough concentration, sitting with a community can be very beneficial. When I don’t have any devotion, attending a devotional gathering can open my heart. There is a catching influence.

 

“Who shall set a limit to the influence of a human being? ”

Of Being Woven

The way is full of genuine sacrifice.

The thickets blocking the path are anything
that keeps you from that, any fear
that you may be broken to bits like a glass bottle.
This road demands courage and stamina,
yet it’s full of footprints!  Who ARE
these companions?  They are rungs
in your ladder.  Use them!
With company you quicken your ascent.

Embraced

 

“We are loved by an unending love. We are embraced by arms that find us even when we are too proud for soothing. We are counseled by voices that guide us even when we are too embittered to hear. We are loved by an unending love. We are supported by hands that uplift us even in the midst of a fall. We are urged on by eyes that meet us even when we are too weak for meeting. We are loved by an unending love. Embraced, touched, soothed, ours are the arms, the fingers, the voices; ours are the hands, the eyes, the smiles; we are loved by an unending love.”

—Rabbi Rami M. Shapiro
