The Sheltering Sky

“Because we don’t know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well, yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number, really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that’s so deeply a part of your being that you can’t even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more, perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless.”

Here comes the sun, and I say, It’s all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here
•Here comes the sun, and I say, It’s all right

~Seven lessons in conscious living

“Your life did not begin when you were physically born and would not end when the body dies. In truth, you were never born and you would never die. As a unit of God’s being you were individualized, not created. At some point in time in the future, you would awaken completely from the illusional sense of Self-identity. Until then, you have much to learn, much good work to do, and much helpful service to render. You can do nothing for God because God is not other than you. All that occurs is God in action.”

The untethered soul

“Do you want to know how God looks upon this world? Do you want to know how he feels about different kinds of people? Then look at the sun. Does the sun shine more brightly on a saint than on anyone else? Is the air more available to the saint? Does the rain fall on one neighbor’s tree more than another’s?”

من السهل جداً الإجتماع على كوب قهوة
القهوة والأكل جمعتني بأشخاص أكثر من الأفكار والأراء
جمعتني بأشخاص من مختلف الطبقات الإجتماعية والإقتصادية والأيدلوجيات السياسية المتناحرة
أكواب القهوة امتحنت صبري ومبادئي أكثر من اورقة جامعتي والمناظرات الفكرية اللتي شاهدتها وحضرتها
أرضت أحبة! وخلقت محبة، وعززت وسهلت الغفران والتسامح
ومن الأسباب القليلة اللتي تجعلني أتشوق لصباح يوم جديد
