And Jesus said, “I am with you always, until the end of the age.”
Within you there is a stillness and a sanctuary
to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself.
Compassion…is an understanding of the unity of all things. It is an awareness that I is not separate from thou, that whatever is happening to the planet, or to another person, is happening to me. Compassion is total empathy, an absolute sense of connection.
Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself and know that everything in this life has a purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences. All events are blessings given to us to learn from.
Awe, which many people experience in nature, is, according to one study, associated with increased generosity toward other people. Maybe what we get out of nature is a sense of connection to the larger community of life.
Nature is my manifestation of God. I go to manage everyday frustration and the day’s work. ‘I follow in building the principles which nature has used in this domain.“
Frank Lloyd Wright
In order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion.”
Entertain silence in the heart and listen for the voice of God… pray for your own discovery.”
Silence of the heart is necessary so you can hear God everywhere in the closing of a door, in the person who needs you, in the birds that sing, in the flowers, in the animals.”
First, silence makes us pilgrims. Secondly, silence guards the fire within. Thirdly, silence teaches us to speak.”
