Rumi and Shams- The Last Breath

I'll not put you in the heart or you'll be wounded.  I'll not keep you in the eye or you'll be lowly.  I'll give you a place in the spirit, not the eyes or the heart, so you'll be my companion at the last breath.

Jesus FulFilling The Law

Jesus came to fulfill all that was said of him by the prophets.  St. Paul states that Jesus came to free us from the unbearable burden of the Law, which no human being could possibly carry, "Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law." (Gal. 3:13)
Jesus concern is not for the Law itself, but for the rights and the reverence due to God, and for the honor and respect due to God's children, all of which is the substance of the Law.  To God is is not the Law that is sacred, but the human soul.  So, the Law means nothing if the heart and soul of a human being is polluted by willfully entertaining evil thoughts and desires, and evil polluting against the interests of God and our fellow human beings.
Love is the basis for the whole Law and the prophets.  If you love properly, there is no need for written commandments.  Commandments are a substitute for people who have never learned how to love, and have to be told how to treat God and one another.
Jesus showed us how we should express that love.  Jesus loved everything alive, from God down to the simplest creature.  He had reverence for everything his Father created.  This was the model of love he set for all of us.

Fall Into The Fire

Your discourses with Him are limited if you are doing all the talking and none of the listening.  If you closed your mouth and opened your ears you would hear a faint voice telling you, fall into the fire Beloved and be burned!

Your Art

Your life is not a meaningless drop in the uncaring tides of history, but a work of art that you are ever in the process of creating.  Your art is not a frivolous decoration, it is a divine expression of all that is.
Honor your thoughts.  They are the brushes with which you paint the picture of your life.
Honor your feelings, knowing that they have the power to shape the images imprinted on the canvas of time.
Honor your imaginings.  They are the pigments that bring vibrancy and color to your soul's creations.
Honor the dreams that inhabit your night hours, and the symbols they leave as gifts on the doorstep of your waking.
Paint the image of your dreams, get the images out there, and detach yourself from the outcome of these actions.

The Remedy

Look for an opening in the Unseen for a remedy to your suffering.  There are no cures when your heart is tight.  The same cause of your suffering is the same cure for it.

This Too Will Pass

If I think back on how many times I have failed and if I never moved from that space, I would never get back up again and move forward.  Sometimes the ebb of life departs from me and darkness creeps into the corners of my mind.  I feel defeat!  When I am still a consciousness emerges out of the darkness- sometimes as light, sometimes as wind, sometimes as a voice reminding me I Am an eternal being- whispering, this too will pass, this too will pass.

My Letter To God

From Journal Entry 1/12/2012


I pray that you continue to guide me on my path.  I at times have doubts about what lies ahead for me, so please continue to give me faith.  My dream for myself is little in comparison  to your big dream for me.  As the dream unfolds give me strength and courage to conquer my obstacles.  I trust you are by my side even at times when I don't feel your presence.  I choose you over all things and desire to serve you.  Please give me your power to fulfill your dreams for me.



P.S. Thank you for all your blessings you have bestowed on me.
