A fish cannot drown in water,
A bird does not fall in air.
In the fire of creation,
Gold doesn’t vanish:
The fire brightens.
Each creature God made
Must live in its own true nature;
How could I resist my nature,
That lives for oneness with God?
~ Mechthild of Magdeberg (1210-1297) from The Enlightened Heart, Edited by Stephen Mitchell
You are searching the world for treasure
but the real treasure is yourself
If you are tempted by bread
you will find only bread
What you seek for
~ Rumi, from Rumi Hidden Magic , translated by Maryam Mafi and Azima Melita Kolin
The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness. I am the means God has appointed for the salvation of the world.
~ A Course in Miracles, Foundation For Inner Peace
