The person who sits is more ready to bring forth clear things

The person who sits is more ready to bring forth clear things than someone who walks or stands. Sitting means peace. Thus we sit, which is bowing in humility among all creatures. Then the individual comes to a quiet peace reaching this peace in light. The light is given in the silence wherein one sits and dwells.

~ Meister Eckhart

With True Love, there is always a childlike sense of wonder

With True Love, there is always a childlike sense of wonder and an appreciation for the Mystery of life that is beyond our human comprehension.

~ from OUT OF DARKNESS INTO THE LIGHT by Gerald G. Jampolsky

Open your hearts, oh woman and man!

Open your hearts, oh woman and man!
Now let your great and wise and powerful be as the poor
and foolish little ones:

unembarrassed to receive the incredible Gift,
and not knotted in guilt over your lack of worth,
and not struggling to "earn" what cannot be deserved,
but just simply, joyfully accepting of all
that is given so humbly and gladly in Love.

~ from ENCOUNTERS AT BETHLEHEM by Jean J. Andersen

O hidden Life, vibrant in every atom

O hidden Life, vibrant in every atom,
O hidden Light, shining in every creature.
O hidden Love, embracing all in oneness,
May all who feel themselves as one with Thee,
Know they are therefore one with every other.

Deep in the darkness of a silent night

Deep in the darkness of a silent night and quietly in the secret of your soul, the Mystery of God continues to be born.

~ Doris Klein
Journey of the Soul
By Doris Klein

December 1993 (Vol. VI, No. 11)

BLESSINGS and ALL GOOD WISHES, dear friends! May each one of us radiate from the silence the gifts of wisdom, love, goodness, light and joy. May we recognize that in this, the busiest and noisiest of seasons, we are invited to ever deepening times of silence and solitude to ponder the Mystery of Love born anew in our hearts.

There is a light that shines beyond all things on earth

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 hearts.

~ Chandogya
Chandogya Upanishad
By Charles Johnston

Make your heart crystal clear within

Sisters and brothers, listen. Make your heart crystal clear within. Your senses will be opened and your soul so transparent that you will see into the Love and Wisdom of God ... Spiritual persons who dwell on earth are offered two kinds of spirit: In this way two pure natures come together. The first is the flowing Fire of the Godhead; and the second is gradual growth and expansion of the loving soul.

~ Mechtild of Magdeburg

The simplicity of choosing to live a life of love

Increasingly, my intention is to make each day of a living prayer. I am finding that to go out of the darkness into light, I have only to be a little more kind, a little more gentle and loving to those around me, and to myself. It has been in showing love to myself that I have had the greatest difficulty. The simplicity of choosing to live a life of love, rather than a life of fear, is more clearly becoming a reality for me. The power of simply remembering God, and remembering that my true identity is love, has been beyond anything I could have imagined. Let us all join in love, and know that in sharing the thoughts of love and peace with one another we bring the miracle of light into the world.
