- "We are celebrating the feast of the Eternal Birth which God the Father has
borne and never ceases to bear in all eternity... But if it takes not place in me,
what avails it? Everything lies in this, that it should take place in me."~ Meister EckhartLove so vast, love the sky cannot contain. How does all this fit inside my heart?~ Rumivia Wayne Ferguson on Facebook"God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him."
(First Letter of John).via Harsha Luther on FacebookIn this moment for you, right now there is a clear
light of awareness in which everything is appearing.
It is what you are. You are that! It is free, totally
unobscured, full and complete. Christ said, 'I am the
light of the world'. You, as that awareness, can say
the same thing. Separation from that is a total illusion.
It never happened, except in imagination. It is based
on a 'me' that never existed. It is just a wrong idea.~ John WheelerAwakening to the Natural Statevia Along The Way"This place where you are right now, God circledon a map for you,the Beloved bowed there knowing you were coming.I could tell you a priceless secretabout your real worth, dear seeker,but any unkindness to yourself, any confusionabout others, will keep one from accepting the grace,the love, the sublime freedom Divine Knowledgealways offers you.I have already clearly woven a resplendent lock ofHis tresses as a remarkable gift in this verse for you.This place where you are right now, God circledon a map. And the Beloved bowed there knowing,knowing you were coming." Hafiz/ LadinskyNativityBy Li-Young Lee
(1957 - )In the dark, a child might ask, What is the world?
just to hear his sister
promise, An unfinished wing of heaven,
just to hear his brother say,
A house inside a house,
but most of all to hear his mother answer,
One more song, then you go to sleep.How could anyone in that bed guess
the question finds its beginning
in the answer long growing
inside the one who asked, that restless boy,
the night's darling?Later, a man lying awake,
he might ask it again,
just to hear the silence
charge him, This night
arching over your sleepless wondering,this night, the near ground
every reaching-out-to overreaches,just to remind himself
out of what little earth and duration,
out of what immense good-bye,each must make a safe place of his heart,
before so strange and wild a guest
as God approaches.
