" Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you truly love."
Rumi --- Submitted by Simon Heighwaya --- United Kingdom
... because "the part will always be drawn towards the whole". In the 13th century Rumi said, "Love is the energizing elixir of the universe, the cause and effect of all harmonies". Not unlike Teilhard de Chardin, who wrote more recently, "Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire". Both agree that love is a kind of energy.

I like to think that life, love and God are all basically the same - a magical, mysterious force - possibly the only really real thing in existence. Many of the greatest mystics ever, who have really lived what they taught, have said an interesting thing and I'll paraphrase: "Rather than trying to possess life (or love, or God) recognize the fact that this energy is infinitely greater than you are and allow yourself to be possessed by it! Allow it to move you, to direct your course, to guide you." This is, they say, the true secret of surrender; and surrender is the real secret of everything!

" In life and in love, there is only that moment, the NOW. The only reality we know is what we experience this very second. Reality is not what has passed or what has yet to come into being. Grabbing hold of this simple idea makes life magical because it brings love alive."
Leo Buscaglia

" Love will always have the final word: this is why temporarily defeated is stronger than evil triumphant."

" Every heart that has beat strongly and cheerfully has left a hopeful impulse behind it in the world, and bettered the tradition of mankind."

" Love means to realize that we are one with life. Real love means to realize that we are one with the other person, one with nature, and one with the trees, the stones, the earth and the blue sky. It means to realize that all of life is God."

" A person who is use to having frustrations due to failure doesn't mean there is no hope for them. As long as you're alive and breathing, there are so many chances --- and opportunities will come. Just think: there are more people out there who have bigger problems than you do. Just be courageous enough to face the test of life. God won't give you anything that you can't endure. If you believe God loves you, then you will succeed not only in this earthly world but for your eternal life with him."
Written in 2006 by Jacqueline Vitalich --- Philippines

" If a man can write a better book, preach a better sermon, or make a better mousetrap than his neighbors, even though he lives in the woods, the world will make a beaten footpath to his doorstep."
