Being Love

April 7, 2015

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

“Love should be like breathing. It should be just a quality in you. Wherever you are, withwhomsoever you are, or even if you are alone, love goes on overflowing from you. It is not a question of being in love with someone. It is a question of being love.”

– Osho

What Does Love Look LIke?

April 2, 2015

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

“What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.”
St. Augustine of Hippo


Offering Your Own State of Being – Wisdom of Baba Ram Dass

March 30, 2015

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

“The only thing you have to offer another human being, ever, is your own state of being. You can cop out only just so long, saying, “I’ve got all this nice stuff, I know all this and I can do all this.” But everything you do, whether you’re cooking food or doing therapy or being a student or being a lover, you are only doing your own being, you’re only manifesting how evolved a consciousness you are.”

– Baba Ram Dass


Kindness is a Way of Life

March 23, 2015

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

“More than anything else, kindness is a way of life. It is a way of living and walking through life. It is a way of dealing with all that is–our selves, our bodies, our dreams and goals, our neighbors, our competitors, our enemies, our air, our earth, our animals, our space, our time, and our very consciousness. Do we treat all creation with kindness? Isn’t all creation holy and divine?”

– Jean Maalouf, from The Healing Power of Kindness

Questions for the Devil

March 17, 2015

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

Questions for the Devil

Q: Devil, where are you located?
A:  In doubting eyes, in a sharp tongue, in a gossiping mouth, in inquisitive ears, in idle hands, in restless feet, in a vicious body, in a crooked mind, in a bitter heart, and in a darkened soul.
Q: Devil, how do you express yourself?
A:  In winking eyes, in sneering smiles, in cutting words and in false tears.

Hazrat Inayat Khan

Poetry Monday – Moses and Khidr by Barbara Flaherty

February 9, 2015

Sometimes you have to turn around,
retrace your steps to the place
where the two seas meet.
One is fresh, the other salty.
One is the lawgiver, the other
swims in deeper waters.
How do you find this place
where the dead come to life,
where the ocean is an archway
for the traveler? The signs
are everywhere around,
hunger, weariness, remembering
what it is you seek. Go back
to the place where the two seas meet,
where the dead came to life.
Sometimes you have to turn around.

– Barbara Flaherty
