FINDING PEACE

A THOUGHT AND MEDITATION

“Don’t think.  Don’t get lost in your thoughts.  Your thoughts are a veil on the face of the moon.  That moon is your heart.  So let them go — Just let them fall into the water.”

–Rumi

During this last week in November, we have the feast of Thanksgiving to thank for.  The opportunity to take time for a little reflection and close the door to a hurried world…and open our heart to grateful living.

So may this week not catch you off guard, but rejoice in remembering a little, dreaming a little, each day is your day.

 

THE KINGDOM IS AMONG YOU

Christ, King of the Universe

GOOD SUNDAY AFFIRMATION

This Sunday closes ordinary time and Advent will rush in with more joy and peace.  We are invited to this union with God through family and community.  Let us allow Christ to reign in our body, mind and heart.  Let us cling to his majesty.

The aroma of Jesus is the Kingdom of God infused with Love.”

–Father Michael Payyapilly, VC

COME AND SEE

SATURDAY’S MANTRA

When Jesus commanded that Zacchaeus come down from the sycamore tree, he invited him to come and see.

“Zacchaeus, come down quickly, for today I must stay at your house.”

–Luke 19:1-10

This invitation is ours too.  We can either stay in the viewing gallery or come down in the heart of the playing field where Jesus wants to give us something that will change our life for the good, but will require some sacrifice on our part.

“Only for today, I will adapt to circumstances, without requiring all circumstances to be adapted to my own wishes.”

–The Decalogue, Pope John XXIII

“Mantras are passwords that transform the mundane into the sacred.”

–Deva Premal

Isn’t life a mosaic full of mantras suited to each individual?

Happy Saturday!

A THOUGHT AND MEDITATION

Teach me how to trust my heart, my mind, my intuition, my inner knowing, the senses of my body, the blessings of my spirit.

“Teach me to trust these things so that I may enter my sacred space and love beyond my fear and thus walk in balance with the passing of each glorious sun.”

–A Lakota Prayer

“Let your “Yes mean “Yes,” and your “No mean “No.”  Anything more is from the evil one.”

–Matthew 5:37
