A Sufi mystic was very poor, hungry, rejected, tired of the journey. He went to a village in the night and the village wouldn't accept him. The village belonged to the orthodox people. They wouldn't even give him shelter in the town. The night was cold and he was hungry, tired, shivering with not enough clothes. He was sitting outside the town under a tree. His disciples were sitting there with great sadness, depression, even anger.
And then he started praying and he said to…

The wisdom of Kabbalah is the most ancient of all wisdoms. It goes back to the time of Abraham the Patriarch, in the 18th century BC, 3800 years ago.

He then wrote a book about it called Sefer Yetzira (The Book of Creation), which is actually the very first book about the wisdom of…Continue

The Horn of Plenty
Amplitude - there for you to draw upon. Nothing withheld. All given with Love...To the one whose Faith intertwines with My Being.
My Being as the One. The One whose Realm of Plenty is available to those who know enough to draw upon my Love for Self.
My Self by reflection is as One with My Being. This output- descent of Force and the rising back are simultaneous. Man and God - God and Man...simultaneous.
I believe that all things Great and Small are ONE when they
tangentally meet somewhere over the RAINBOW.
I believe that SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW is now!

By looking in a mirror, one perceives his own identity;
but that identity was already there.

Early on I was taught that Souls select even vie for a "tough" life and beginning. All for the sake of a return that is permanent and successful.
For that can be a springboard to get to a Higher Plane/Level of consciousness!
Another related thought is that one really has to get into the pits to make an election to get out of the Nadir - the pits. With alcoholics (AA) this is a known truth. It becomes do or die. The moment of reversal.
A hard situation to be put in. born,…
I'm editing an iMovie for my community about comparative religions. Jewish, Christian' Muslim and Hindu. I can't find really good quality photos signifying each one.
I downloaded small unclear pictures except for too few. Stock companies want money and that's a no no here.
If you have a good one and would like to share it, one that signifies strongly one of these religions, would you just include it in your message comment and I will drag it out.

The following is a dialogue taken from a reading for Timothy between Timothy and Master that will help our understanding:
Question No. 1 - Once an individual has reached a certain level of spiritual evolvement, and his highest commitment becomes to allow his higher self (soul) dominion over the needs of the personality and to live and respond out of the inner impulses of the soul, does this ongoing way of life insure ones highest growth and spiritual evolvement in this lifetime?…Continue

Your physical form is the temple you have chosen to enfold and harbor your piece of the Creator known to you as your soul. This temple should be worthy of the piece of divineness that is you. When serving as housing for the divine, your form should be as clean, not only physically, but also mentally, as it is possible for you to make it. You have been raised above the level of the animal kingdom by the piece of the Creator that is in you.
Think of this as a small bit of radioactive…Continue
