Hell and Heaven

April 14, 2017

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

“Hell is in the here and now. So is heaven. Quit worrying about hell or dreaming about heaven, as they are both present inside this very moment. Every time we fall in love, we ascend to heaven. Every time we hate, envy, or fight someone, we tumble straight into the fires of hell.”

– Shams-e-Tabriz

Humility

April 4, 2017

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

“Humility, therefore, is absolutely necessary if man is to avoid acting like a baby all his life. To grow up means, in fact, to become humble, to throw away the illusion that I am at the center of everything and that other people only exist to provide me with comfort and pleasure…”
– Thomas Merton, “The New Man”
