“The Way It Is"
There’s a thread you follow. It goes among
things that change. But it doesn’t change.
People wonder about what you are pursuing.
You have to explain about the thread.
But it is hard for others to see.
While you hold it you can’t get lost.
Tragedies happen; people get hurt
or die; and you suffer and get old.
Nothing you do can stop time’s unfolding.
You don’t ever let go of the thread.
Watch this quick video from Richard Rohr on the sacredness of breath. It's POWERFUL!
"Not good humanhood or bad humanhood, just Christhood".
(the mantra I lean on to feel through the world, to the Truth of the invisible Kingdom. I feel the One Christ, the undivided, formless Love where people appear to be. I know that only Love is (t)here.)
"The bottom line is that we find our path by following what makes us feel good. Why does that seem like such a revolutionary concept? Why do we spend so much time not doing what we want to do and complaining about what we wind up doing? If we follow our sense of well-being, if we follow our heart and do what makes us happy, it’s going to lead us in the right direction."
-Krishna Das, Chants of a Lifetime
“Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which he looks compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good. Yours are the hands through which he blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes, you are his body. Christ has no body now on earth but yours.”
- Teresa of Avila
Choose a practice to help you stay aware of and consciously hold the Thread of Love. You can chant, you can sing, you can breathe consciously, you can sway... you can feel God's presence with you, or feel It as your Self. Do what it takes, and It will bless you.
ProTip: Choose the one that feels good. That's the one that works ;) This is the mala I've purchased like 20 times now for myself and Go(o)d Friends!
I Love you,
