“None of us is promised an easy life. There is nothing we can do to keep ourselves immune to trials, and we cannot eradicate painful feelings in our lives. But even the most difficult seasons are not absent of God’s love. And this love changes us. This is what I want to tell you: on the far side of pain we don’t prefer, we find transformation we wouldn’t trade.” ― Nicole Zasowski, From Lost to Found:
Seems we have always been next door to Heaven…..
Like a glimpse in the peripheral vision…..the feeling is ever so quick, yet runs so deep in the marrow… you feel the wind of its calling….its moment…and you touch that glimpse all day long and each time..the heart expands and the anticipation in the Spirit vibrates….
We watch as clouds shape shift and break out into beautiful colors of our imaginations…..
we squint to squeeze a bit more time into the sensation….
At that very moment…gateways are opening…bridges crossed, vanish…and the most splendid horrible relief comes over you….
Breathe deep dear travelers…we are stepping into a new life…and as that might sound so beautiful and full of anticipated happiness…
.…awakening was a horrible relief…and courage came….while we dared to bloom through it all….
All flowers, in time…bend toward the Sun…….
“It is said there are flowers that bloom only once in a hundred years. Why should there not be some that bloom once in a thousand, in ten thousand years? Perhaps we never know about them simply because this “once in a thousand years” has come today.” ― Zamyatin, We

Rainer Maria Rilke

There is no gentle here, but oh how it longs to be tender, and oh how it yearns to be soft.
“It is so many years before one can believe enough in what one feels even to know what the feeling is” ― W.B. Yeats
ALL that awaken…discover the self of illusion
In this illusion ..is that which we believed ourselves to be with such conviction..such immense thought of ourselves….we built a full body ….equipped the personality… with what we thought we knew….
“Maturity, one discovers, has everything to do
with the acceptance of ‘not knowing.”
Z. Danielewski, House of Leaves
The light doesn’t sleep…it is always there….don’t give up….you are about to come alive….. honor your natural rhythm….and enter that soft spot just before the blooming…this is where…your true nature is revealed…
“Life is about pursuing the essence of creation” ― Sunday Adelaja
Now we listen to feelings and understand what they have to say to us…Now we listen with a new ear, the ear of the heart
Now we recognize the thoughts that would censor our feelings. We
realize this because we realize the sacred space we have become.
Our space is the space of unity. It is the space of ease because
thoughts are no longer allowed their rule.
Life is the connecting tissue of the web of form with the Divine All.
Life is consciousness. Christ consciousness is the awareness of what IS. It is
the awareness of the connection and relationship of ALL to ALL. It is the
merging of the unknowable and the knowable through movement, expression and
