Heart Rock


“Breathing in, I see myself as a mountain.”
Breathing out, I feel solid.”

—Thich Nhat Hanh


“In God alone is my soul at rest; my help comes from him. He alone is my rock, my stronghold, my fortress; I stand firm. In God is my safety and glory, the rock of my strength. Take refuge in God all you people. Trust him at all times. Pour out your hearts before him for God is our refuge. Do not put your trust in oppression, nor vain hopes on plunder. Do not set your heart on riches even when they increase. For God has said only one thing: only two do I know: that to God alone belongs power and to you, Lord, love; and that you repay each man according to his deeds.”

—Psalm 62: 2-3, 8-9, 11-13


“Everything is pervaded by Consciousness. It is that Consciousness which sustains the world and all the creatures in it. To worship everything, seeing God in all, is what religion advises. Such an attitude teaches us to love Nature. None of us would consciously injure our own body, because we know it would be painful. Similarly, we will feel the pain of other people to be our own when the realization dawns within us that everything is pervaded by one and the same Consciousness.”

—Amma, Man and Nature, p21


“Trust in the LORD always, for the LORD God is the eternal Rock.”

—Isaiah 26:4


“You, O Lord, are my lamp, my God who lightens my darkness. With you I can break through any barrier, with my God I can scale any wall. As for God, his ways are perfect; the word of the Lord, purest gold. He indeed is the shield of all who make him their refuge. For who is God but the Lord? Who is a rock but our God? The God who girds me with strength and makes the path safe before me.”

– Psalm 18: 29-33
