There is a Candle in Your Heart ~ Rumi

There Is A Candle In Your Heart 

There is a candle in your heart,
      ready to be kindled.
There is a void in your soul,
      ready to be filled.
You feel it, don’t you?
You feel the separation
      from the Beloved.
Invite Him to fill you up,
      embrace the fire.
Remind those who tell you otherwise that 
      Love
      comes to you of its own accord, 
      and the yearning for it

Today’s Reflection ~ Happiness

“Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.” – James Matthew Barrie


Today’s Reflection ~ Love

“Love is a symbol of eternity. It wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of an end.” – Author Unknown

We Cannot Live Without Love ~ Pope John Paul II

We Cannot Live Without Love

 We cannot live without love.
If we do not encounter love,
If we do not experience it and make it our own,
And if we do not participate intimately in it,
Our life is meaningless.
Without love we remain incomprehensible to ourselves.

Pope John Paul II

Today’s Reflection ~ Compassion

“Waking up this morning, I smile. Twenty-four brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Stop Being So Religious ~ Hafiz

Stop Being so Religious 

Stop Being So Religious
What
Do sad people have in
Common?

It seems
They have all built a shrine
To the past
And often go there
And do a strange wail and
Worship.

What is the beginning of
Happiness?
It is to stop being
So religious
Like That.
