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

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
