Nothing is more practical than
finding God, than
falling in Love
in a quite absolute, final way.
What you are in love with,
what seizes your imagination, will affect everything.
It will decide
what will get you out of bed in the morning,
what you do with your evenings,
how you spend your weekends,
what you read, whom you know,
what breaks your heart,
and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.
Fall in Love, stay in love,
and it will decide everything.
Father Pedro Arrupe (1907)
"Many persons use greater care to avoid injuries to the body rather than to shun harm to the soul. Thou art not flesh and hair but a will. If thou keep this beautiful then will you be beautiful. "- Epictetus
"But when the observer is the observed - when the thinking is the experience - then there is no more thought. "- Jeanne De Salzmann
"Arise, shine, thy light is come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. "- Old Testament
"If you persist in trying to attain what is never attained. . . If you persist in making effort to obtain what effort cannot get; if you persist in reasoning about what cannot be understood. . . You will be destroyed by the very thing you seek. To know when to stop. . . To know when you can get no further by your own action, this is the right beginning. "- Lao Tse
"Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way. "- American Indian
""Is there anything that I can do to make myself enlightened?" "As little as you can do to make the sun rise in the morning." "Then of what use are the spiritual exercises you prescribe?" "To make sure you are not asleep when the sun begins to rise." "- Anthony De Mello
"If you persist in trying to attain what is never attained (It is Tao's Gift!), If you persist in making effort to obtain what effort cannot get, If you persist in reasoning about what cannot be understood, You will be destroyed by the very thing you seek. To know when to stop, To know when you can get no further by your own action, This is the right beginning! "- Lao Tse
