This Week's Quotation:
Let’s get loose with compassion. Let’s drown in the delicious ambiance of love. An awake heart is like a sky that pours light.
~ Ḥāfeẓ-e Shīrāzī, Persian Mystic
I am on board with this invitation from Ḥāfeẓ. How about you? Let’s get loose with compassion. Heaven knows our world is indicating a need for that now. And we don’t stop there. Let’s drown in the delicious ambiance of love. Not “let’s take a dip,” but “let’s drown.” Let’s completely surrender to Love so that we die to anything that interferes with our knowledge that everything is whole, complete, and the manifestation of Divine Intelligence in the world.
We must not be fooled by the darkness that appears to be on a rampage in our world. God is in all things. Yes, there can be the denial of the Light but never an absence of Light. The darkness takes on a different meaning in our awareness that all things are moving toward God.
As a result, whatever arrives at our doorstep, we are equipped to respond from an awake heart…like a sky that pours light. We radiantly shine. We recognize it is love seeking to know itself. We understand we are under a strong impetus to move from polarized thinking to thinking holistically. We are all in this together.
Each day is an opportunity to die more and more to the old ideas about the nature of all things. A change in perception welcomes miracles. May we attend to our inner environment to ensure that the vibrational ripples we are emanating serve the highest good of all. We are one with our Creator, and our self-realization is the realization of Love in our world.

We believe that the original inspiration of all faiths comes from a common source, named and revered in a myriad of ways. With that understanding, the innumerable symbols, beliefs, and practices of faith cease to divide. They become open windows to a common reality that inspires and unifies us. We find deeper insight and nourishment in our own faith and from the expression of faith from others.
