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

From Rumi Hidden Music:
Do not worry if our harp breaks
thousands more will appear.
We have fallen in the arms of love where all is music.
If all the harps in the world were burned down,
still inside the heart
there will be hidden music playing.
Do not worry if all the candles in the world flicker and die
we have the spark that starts the fire.
The songs we sing
are like foam on the surface of the sea of being
while the precious gems lie deep beneath.
But the tenderness in our songs
is a reflection of what is hidden in the depths.
Stop the flow of your words,
open the window of your heart and
let the spirit speak.
Someday, after we have mastered
the winds, the waves, the tide
and gravity, we shall harness for God
the energies of love.
Then, for the second time in history
of the world, man will have discovered fire.
-Pierre Teilhard De Chardin (1881-1955) from Wisdom of the Ages by Wayne Dyer
Love is a verb
As you prepare for sleep tonight enjoy these verses and perhaps meditate on :
