So where does that leave your problems? Where does that leave ‘you’? Only Love is here. Breathe. Smile. Rest.
"This way of desirelessness is the way to attain your desires." - Rumi
"Where God is, nothing else can be."
- John Stephenson, Fullness of Joy
"The challenge for (St.) Francis was not to give up desire but to remember what he really wanted. "
- Dr. Bruce Davis, "Simple Peace The Spiritual Life of St. Francis of Assisi
"Love is a flame that burns everything other than itself. It is the destruction of all that is false and the fulfillment of all that is true."
"The thing you want is to want nothing."
- Cory Allen
"You make known to me the path of life;
in your Presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore."
“The most exquisite paradox… as soon as you give it all up, you can have it all. As long as you want power, you can't have it. The minute you don't want power, you'll have more than you ever dreamed possible.”
1. Stop for a moment (as many times as you can remember throughout the day)
2. Close your eyes
3. Smile and think,"where God is nothing else can be."
Feel into what the words are pointing toward. This 'nothing else' includes your problems, your desires, your darkness, your goodness... it includes YOU! When you're fully aware of the Presence of God, fully remembering God, you forget (your belief in) the world. You know by feeling, that God, this Love is the only power and you rest and dissolve in That. When you're 'here' no seeming other power can touch you.
I Love you,
