In the Beginning

In the Beginning In the beginning, God/dess created. Do you remember? Ant when we had fallen into sin nnd become subject to evil and death, You, in Your Mercy, sent Your Only Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, to dwell among us. God/dess became tired of hearing our complains. Just so, S/He came down from Perfection to see how it is for us creatures. It killed Him. The grave could not contain this Sacrificial Love. So, on the third day, he rose, in accordance with the Scriptures. Shams says, "Christ... Sign in to see full entry.

I am sitting in the center oofthe universe,

I am sitting in the center of the universe. From my finite self-center, the universe extends in every direction. This Universe is born and dies on every breath. I am at its center. Amazingly, so are you. From this perfect unity, we dance. Do not ask me what I know, I am bragging on my unknowing. Shams says, "Kneel here with me kneel here and kiss the ground."

Beginning Your Forty-Fourth Journey 'Round the Sun

Beginning Your Forty-Fourth Journey 'Round the Sun A Father can be proud from a distance, Son. I pray for you and yours almost every day. You have matured, strong and kind. For this, I give God/dess thanks and praise with not a small heap showered on your Mother. By now, you know the pain of a broken and contrite heart. By now, you have found the Inner Light that never fails. Perhaps, by now, you have discovered the blessing of conscious breathing. Your Mother is a Saint. She gave you all the...

Damascus Road

Damascus Road Jesus had to walk that lonesome valley by Himself. The road to Damscus leads home. You must go and stand your trial. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO STAND IT BY YOURSELF. Shoulder to shoulder, Christ stands with you. On that Damascus Road, He met you. Demanding surrender of your everything and all. This Christ Light reveals the blindness of your darkened cage. For three days I lay in the grave. For three days, you must listen, wordlessly. Fear not your conviction, it is your salvation this day.... Sign in to see full entry.

I Don't Know

I Don't Know Dear One, I pray we reach the knowing of our unknowing. To confess, "I don't know.", is to enter the vast possibilities of heart hunger for Truth. This is the sweetest agony; This eternal hunger for Thee. I open my eyes to Thee, Light from your hungry eyes pierces to the marrow of my heart. Never forget this hunger and the Truth it searches out. Only what Creator offers is real. Alhumdulillah! All praise and gratitude flows naturally to God/dess. Shams says, "Join me in this toast...

If I Say I'm Sorry

If I Say I'm Sorry Most every morning, I tell Creator, "I am sorry!" It's the first prayer of my practice. Perhaps, it should be my final practice each eve. To say I'm sorry, is to acknowledge I was wrong. And more, it is my hunger for help. Help me see the good red road. Help me follow Your Divine Heart. Help me be a beauty merchant, today. Are you hungry? May I have abundance to share. Are you sad and lonely? May I be your loving friend. Are you paralized by fear? May I shine a beacon of... Sign in to see full entry.

Breaching Boundaries

Breaching Boundaries My I-nerss knows itself separate. You are you and not me. But, as Sadhguru reminds us, when it comes to life itself, all is one. We feel our separation, as we identify with our body/mind. Oh sweet friend, ask yourself, am i this body? Am i this mind? Who am I? Am I merely an organized collection of earth stuff? A congealed collection of Stardust? My dear Sister, my Divine Brother, Is it not time to seek our Unity? Are we not killing each other and our very Earth? Tonight,... Sign in to see full entry.

The Cross of Salvation

The Cross of Salvation Foolishness to those who are perishing. but, to those who live their truth, it is the flaming good news that there is only One. One Love, One Light, One Truth One Real. The Muslims have said it most succinctly, 'La illah ha, il Allah.' 'There is no reality outside of God/dess. Il Allah, Only God/dess. Oh Holy Traveler, Together we are dancing. Dancing to the song of compassion. Dancing to the Siren of Love. For this Life-filled breath, Dear One, we give you thanks, even... Sign in to see full entry.

Complacency

Complacency Oh my God/dess, forgive me! My prayer has become rote. Oh Holy Breath of Divine Light, fill me, guide me, be my Light in the darkness. Estaughforallah! Be my Mother, Father, Siater, Brother; my Neighbor and my closest Friend. I renew my vow to seek first, Your Holy Presence. Be my continual Song. I willingly sing along. I shall not forget to remember Thy Blessedness with every revolution of our Mother Earth. Ya Shakur, I give heart-felt thanks on every breath, aware. Shams says,... Sign in to see full entry.

When Histories Collide

When Histories Collide When histories collide, reality is the first casualty. We live in a world of our own creation. Based on what? Based on our conclusions from the past. Listen, friend, do you want to know a secret? The past has no existence, save in our memory mind. So how can our collison, our conflict, our tension, be anything more than a dream? Who are we, if nothing more than our remembered past? Love demands my surrender. There is no battle here, no collision of truths. Our only hope... Sign in to see full entry.

Thankful for Every Breath

Thankful for Every Breath So forgetful am I in my old age. Lately, I keep forgetting fo be aware of and thankful for each breath. So what, there are so many more demanding things to capture my attention. I did not ask to be here. I did not ask for this life. Besides, I cannot control every thought or attention grabbing thing. Still, it is so nice when suddenly, I become thankfully aware of air filling my lungs. In this moment, I understand all and nothing. It is a deeper knowing, a... Sign in to see full entry.

The Heart Knows Only Love

The Heart Knows Only Love Truth must ultimately be the loving truth, the just truth, the compassionate truth, the beautiful truth, the joyful truth, the hopeful truth. That is just the nature of truth. Dear One, What is this that troubles your heart? Are you feeling lonely? Are you feeling taken for granted? Has the Holy One left you to fend for yourself? Have you been moved to a square you do not like in God/dess's Holy Chess Game? Stop and breathe. You are the sum and substance of Divine Love.... Sign in to see full entry.

Start Your Day

Start Your Day Begin each day asking for forgiveness and direction. ”For all have fallen short of the Glory of God.” Oh Holy One, forgive me for allowing my ego to get in Your Way. Help me now, get this upstart to sit quietly Like a closer friend, whisper sweet direction for my day. Help me not forget Thy Holy Presence. Help me surrender to Thy Grace. Let the Beauty we love, Be what we do. Today, show me how to kneel and kiss the ground In all tha I do. Shams says, “Estaughforallah” Sign in to see full entry.
