"And since there can be no tie of direct intercourse to bind the true God with His creation, and no resemblance whatever can exist between the transient and the Eternal, the contingent and the Absolute, He hath ordained that in every age and dispensation a pure and stainless Soul be made manifest in the kingdoms of earth and heaven."

Not all are called to be artists in the specific sense of the term. Yet, all men and women are entrusted with the task of crafting their own life: in a certain sense, they are to make of it a work of art, a masterpiece.
It is important to recognize the distinction, but also the connection, between these two aspects of human activity. The distinction is clear. It is one thing for human beings to be the authors of their own acts, with responsibility… Continue

Stars brightly gleaming on a clear summer night are a vision of beauty and also a reminder of the magnificent order that exists in the universe.
Within me, too, is a brightly shining light a divine light of wisdom and inspiration. With all the beauty and majesty of brightly shining stars, His light of understanding guides me in the choices I make each day. I intuitively know how to be loving and compassionate toward… Continue

Ten Noble Breaths
Find a quiet place where you feel safe and comfortable, and sit cross-legged on the floor with a pillow under you so that your knees are slightly lower than your hips. If you'd rather, you can sit in a chair with your feet flat on the ground. Either way is fine, don't worry too much about the form. As you practice, you'll discover what feels most comfortable for you.
Sit with your back straight, but relaxed and your hands… Continue

God can create something from nothing. He can take a heart that is broken, impure, or failed and with it create a heart that is whole, pure, and purposeful. God loves you and wants to pour his grace into your life. He wants to see you pure, and he wants to see you succeed – so much so that he takes an active role in creating your new heart and bringing order to the chaos of your life.
Love To All...

A stranger came by the other day with an offer that set me to thinking. He wanted to buy the old barn that sits out by the highway.. I told him right off he was crazy. He was a city type, you could tell by his clothes, his car, his hands, and the way he talked. He said he was driving by and saw that beautiful barn sitting out in the tall grass and wanted to know if it was for sale. I told him he had a funny idea of beauty.
Sure, it was a handsome… Continue

I am Dedicated to Being the Best Person I Can
What does it mean to dedicate to my life? It means that the actions I take and the choices I make convey the very character and nature of divine love.
I am dedicated to living a divinely directed life. And from such a dedication, I find that I am never satisfied with doing anything less than what blesses me because I am being a blessing to others.
I act in loving ways… Continue

There are times when the world is just too much. When fate, fortune and the will of man all turn against us and the deck is simply stacked too deep for us to come out ahead. These are times when a stiff upper lip and a drive to push on simply aren’t enough. These are times of desperation, of hopelessness and of isolation.
Many turn to their faith, hoping and praying for relief, others reflect within, searching for answers within themselves when none can… Continue

My mother cried and tucked her head against my father’s chest. I blinked, bewildered and fanned my ears hopefully. My father pointed to a small parchment which lay flat on the table. My eyes focused on it and I read. The council of Elders had demanded my presence. Anxiety, apprehension, then fear. Why me? Nothing I could think of would give them reason to summon me thus, unless... The Elders filed into their places on the curved dais behind the main floor to… Continue

Among the great religious systems of the world is Islam. About three hundred million people acknowledge it. For more than a thousand years there has been enmity and strife between Muslims and Christians, owing to misunderstanding and spiritual blindness. If prejudices and imitations were abandoned, there would be no enmity whatever between them, and these hundreds of millions of antagonistic religionists would adorn the world of humanity by their… Continue

The sound a bomb makes is easy enough to mistake, easy enough to set aside
when there is work at hand,
and even as we step from our offices
and peer upward at the
higher floors of the building,
we are expecting to see that
something has fallen,
because that noise, that profound bang
seemed like a falling body,
a book cart, perhaps, precipitated
from the top floor and coming
to rest… Continue

Long ago in a small, far away village, there was place known as the House of 1000 Mirrors. A small, happy little dog learned of this place and decided to visit. When he arrived, he bounced happily up the stairs to the doorway of the house. He looked through the doorway with his ears lifted high and his tail wagging as fast as it could. To his great surprise, he found himself staring at 1000 other happy little dogs with their tails wagging just as… Continue
