"I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord."
 
"This will be a sign to you; You will find a baby wrapped in clothes and lying in a manger. Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."  Luke 2: 10-14.
 
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Like the way a garden burns
in a hundred shades of orange in the fall,
a Lover's heart shrivels for a sense of the Beloved's touch.
Now the face of that charred garden
is my field of flowers.
 
When the sweet glance of my true love caught my eyes,
Like alchemy, it transformed my copper-like soul.
I searched for Him with a thousand hands,
He stretched out His arms and clutched my feet.
Rumi

Bless me with nothing less
Fasten me close to yourself with love’s glue,
For this time I seek nothing else But just you. Mji ♥
 
 

"I am with you when you meditate and when you do not meditate.

I am in you and you are in me.

It is only in your mind that the barriers of what is yours

and what is mine exist,
yet only with your heart can you know and perceive me.
 

Empty your heart of ignorant fears;
when you do not bring your personality between us I will be with you.
 

By yourself you cannot do anything, but I can do everything and I am with you.

Even if you cannot see the good, the good is there because I am there.

I am there because I must be.

Because I am there all the time, only when you are in me will the world take its true form.

Only through me does the world go forward without destroying itself,
because I am the law on which the movement of the stars and the growth of every living cell rests.
 

I am the love which is the fulfillment of the law.
 
I am your security; I am your peace. I am your everything.
Even if you do not find me, I will always find you.
If your faith in me is weak, my faith in you is faultless,
although you give your trust and love to others without reason.
 
You need me; I am here with you.
You cannot see me yet I am the light which allows you to see me.  
You cannot hear me yet I speak through your voice.
You cannot feel me, yet I am the power which works in your hands.
I work inside you even if you do not know my ways.
I work inside you even if you do not recognize my works.  
I am not a strange vision; I am not a mystery.
Alone in the absolute silence beyond the personality which you can enter,
alone as a feeling and as a faith.  
I am still with you. I still hear you. I can still answer you when you need me.
I am with you and I love you.
In those moments when you must be all alone I am with you,
even in your fears and even in your grief; even if you deny me I am with you.  
My love is just for you alone because I know you and because I love you."
 
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
 
I have had my Seat on the Self-poised One,
I have drunk of the Cup of the Ineffable,
I have found the Key of the Mystery,
I have reached the Root of Union.
 
There the whole sky is filled with sound, and there that music is
made without fingers and without strings;
There the game of pleasure and pain does not cease.
Kabîr says: "If you merge your life in the Ocean of Life, you

will find your life in the Supreme Land of Bliss.

 
There is dew
on these poems in the morning,
and at night a cool breeze may rise from them.
In the winter they are blankets, in the summer a place to swim.
I like talking to you like this. Have you moved
a step closer?
Soon we may be kissing.
Kabir
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Be Content with what you have;
rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking,
the whole world belongs to you.
Lao Tzu
 
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the Ones we have been waiting for."
Hopi Elder
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
 
Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy.
Act in me, O Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy.
Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit, that I love but what is holy.
Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy.
Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit, that I always may be holy.
Amen.
St. Augustine
