Act Great!

What is the key
To untie the knot of your mind’s suffering?

What
Is the esoteric secret
To slay the crazed one whom each of us
Did wed

And who can ruin
Our heart’s and eye’s exquisite tender
Landscape?

Hafiz has found
Two emerald words that
Restored
Me

That I now cling to as I would sacred
Tresses of my Beloved’s
Hair:

Act great.
My dear, always act great.

What is the key
To untie the know of the mind’s suffering?

Benevolent thought, sound
And movement.

— Hafiz

What Kind Of God?

What kind of God would He be
if He did not hear the
bangles ring on
an ant’s
wrist

as they move the earth
in their sweet
dance?

And what kind of God would He be
if a leaf’s prayer was not as precious to creation
as the prayer His own son sang
from the glorious depth
of his soul–
for us.

And what kind of God would He be
if the vote of millions in this world could sway Him
to change the divine
law of
love

that speaks so clearly with compassion’s elegant tongue,
saying, eternally saying:

all are forgiven–moreover, dears,
no one has ever been
guilty.

— Kabir

Can’t Carry That Weight

Arrogance

The weight of arrogance is such
that no bird can fly
carrying it.

And the man who feels superior
to others, that man
cannot dance,

the real dance when the soul takes God
into its arms and you both fall
onto your knees in
gratitude,

a blessed gratitude
for life.

— St. John of the Cross

Alternative Views

Alternate facts is a fascinating phrase and idea. To me, alternate facts is like experiencing a blinding snowstorm while laying on a sunny tropical beach. It can be distracting, to say the least.

Alternative truth. This is also fascinating. This is to say that truth does not exist, or perhaps that it is completely and totally malleable as to not even be what it was first thought to be. Truth is or is not. Otherwise, truth may only be a personal viewpoint, as in a truth and my truth. If there is really truth, it would be truth and anything other would be not truth. This would make alternative truth a misnomer.

Alternative reality. Reality is or is not. Yet reality is not one of those things that can be absolute. All reality, including so-called alternate reality would be the reality of the source of the recognition of that reality.

Our Focus Is Our Vibration

“Fear is an uncaring driver who’s only destination is in the direction of more fear.

Fear, as it is spread, is like a magnet attracting and attaching itself to more fear, even exponentially or virally. 

This applies as much to those spreading it purposely to promote fear as to those, who with the best intentions, who feel it is their duty to shine a light on it and expose it. It is spread nonetheless.”

— Paul Selig
The Book of Love and Creation

Now the great news about this concept is that the same exact thing happens with love or joy or peace of mind… Whatever we focus on is expanded and we cannot push against anything and not have it in our vibrational countenance.

Temptation In The Garden

The thought came to me today that the snake in the Garden of Eden that tempted Eve represents our own egos. As we allow our egos to rule our thoughts, consequential emotions, and our behavior, we create a lot of drama. Seriously, a lot of drama. For so many lifetimes. Until each of us decides that it is time to change ourselves and build the life we always wanted in Love, as loved, loving all, and at peace as well as in joy with all of Creation.

Focus. What We Give Our Attention To.

“There are those who believe that the world is getting more and more desperate. We are here to tell you that the world is getting better and better, and better, and that every experience you have causes you to launch rockets of desires, and Source comes in response to those rockets. And the best thing about your birth and death is that the resistant ones die and the allowing ones are born. And with this combination of contrast that keeps you launching new and new desires, it’s no wonder that the Universe is expanding in this marvelous way and that life is getting better, in every day – and in this moment – for everyone who insists on focusing there.”

— Abraham, Esther Hicks

Resonating As Love

“When you resonate as love, you are the gift of love to others. And as they resonate with you, they begin to heal and become who they are as well.

One person lights up and gives permission to the next and to the next and to the next. And as consciousness changes on the individual level, it can change on the mass level as well.”

— Paul Selig

Lousy At Math

Once a group of thieves stole a rare diamond
Larger than a goose egg.

Its value could have easily bought
One thousand horses

And two thousand acres
Of the most fertile land in Shiraz.

The thieves got drunk that night
To celebrate their great haul,

But during the course of the evening
The effects of the liquor
And their mistrust of each other grew to such
An extent

They decided to divide the stone into pieces.
Of course then the Priceless became lost.

Most everyone is lousy at math
And does that to God–

Dissects the Indivisible One,

By thinking, saying,
“This is my Beloved, he looks like this
And acts like that,

How could that moron over there
Really
Be
God.”

— Hafiz
