Scientist from the Institute of Atomic Energy of the Russian Science Academy used precise instruments to prove that the Holy Fire in Jerusalem actually has a divine origin. The head of The Laboratory for ion systems at the Kurchatov Institute Andrey Volkov managed to do what many other scientists in the world have so far failed at: he conducted a scientific experiment in the temple of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem, reported CROSS. During the descent of the Holy Fire the appliances have registered a surge of electromagnetic radiation. The 52-year-old candidate of physics sciences Andrey Volkov have always been interested in the phenomenon of the spontaneous ignition of the fire in the temple of the Holy Sepulcher, which occurs on the eve of the Orthodox Easter. This fire appears naturally, but in the first few seconds, it does not burn, the faithful wash their face and hands with it as if it was water. First of all, for nearly a thousand years eyewitnesses have seen some flashes running through the walls of the temple before the descent of Fire. This rare phenomenon has long been known and has an electrical nature. However, the question arises: why it happens every year here, and even at some point? Volkov suggested that the flame discharges low-temperatureplasma that during the first few minutes of the Holy Fire does not burn. This again is an electrical phenomenon. Legends say that at the end of the XVI century, when the Turks invaded Jerusalem during the Orthodox Easter, the believers were not allowed to stay in the church. People began to pray at the entrance, and soon one of the columns in front of the gate was struck by a lightning. The column was split and there came the Holy Fire. According to another version, the column was cracked due to a fire in the temple that happened in 1808.
And then comes the idea of a bold experiment - to take the risk to measure the electromagnetic radiation in the church using a special equipment at the time of the appearance of the Holy Fire. Initially, the experiment was conceived as a piece of a documentary film about the role of religion in Wonderland. The Holy Fire is the greatest of these phenomena. Therefore scientists required to use physical measurements, to somehow understand its nature. Andrey managed to carry all the equipment to the temple and conduct the experiment listed as an assistant of one of the film crew, who were authorized to work in the temple. On April 26 the crew got to the temple at about 9 am. Exercising the right of the TV, they settled in about ten meters from the Edicule. * Edicule - the chapel in the center of the Holy Sepulcher. It is believed that it is just on the site of the cave, where the body of Jesus was covered after his death. What's going on inside, nobody knows, but according to the tradition of the Orthodox Easter the Patriarch of Jerusalem comes out of it with a burning candle. According to another version, the column was cracked due to a fire in the temple that happened in 1808. At this distance, the device could detect what was happening within it. Gradually, the temple was filled with people. The spectrum changed -there were added impulses from the included video cameras, music players, watches. But these bursts were of certain frequencies known in advance. In addition, the bursts were periodically repeated. They needed a single impulse of an unknown origin. By the way, they worked in the temple and on the day before Easter - so that the total electromagnetic background was already known to us.
The mysterious surge was caught after six hours. The Patriarch of Jerusalem has long disappeared into the Edicule, the ceremony began ... There was recorded a change of the emission spectrum due to a strange impulse. It happened in the period of 15 minutes to 4 hours and from 15 hours to 6 minutes - the exact time was not mentioned because of the technological features of the device. One splash - and nothing else like it. And soon the Patriarch of Jerusalem appeared with a burning candle ...
The scientist set up the device so that if during the advent of Holy Fire there was a peak of electromagnetic fields, the computer would measure it. Volkov watched how the Patriarch of Jerusalem enter the temple with a bunch of candles. People froze in anticipation of the miracle. After all, according to the legend, if the Holy Fire does not come down to the people on the eve of Easter, this will mark the approaching end of the world. The fact that it was a miracle was clearly noticed first by Andrei Volkov. So before anyone else in the church his tools showed a jump in the electromagnetic field. So they detected the appearance of a genuine divine Holy fire.
Girls are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. The boys don’t want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples from the ground that aren’t as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they’re amazing. They just have to wait for the right boy to come along, the one who’s brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Annyeonglyannea
And I should run you a hot bath, fill it up with bubbles.
Cause maybe you're lovable,
and maybe you're my snowflake,
and your eyes turn from green to grey,
in the winter I'll hold you in a cold place.
And you should never cut your hair,
'cause I love the way you flick it off your shoulder, (mm)

“Love is a battle lost before even begun.”
Frédéric Beigbeder, L'amour dure trois ans
“Love hasn't got anything to do with the heart, the heart's a disgusting organ, a sort of pump full of blood. Love is primarily concerned with the lungs. People shouldn't say "she's broken my heart" but "she's stifled my lungs." Lungs are the most romantic organs: lovers and artists always contract tuberculosis. It's not a coincidence that Chekhov, Kafka, D.H. Lawrence, Chopin, George Orwell and St Thérèse of Lisieux all died of it; as for Camus, Moravia, Boudard and Katherine Mansfield, would they have written the same books if they were not for TB?”
Frédéric Beigbeder, 99 francs
You meet someone and you're sure you were lovers in a past life. After two weeks with them, you realize why you haven't kept in touch for the last two thousand years.
Love can sometimes be magic. But magic can sometimes... just be an illusion.
First love is only a little foolishness and a lot of curiosity.
George Bernard Shaw
Love is like swallowing hot chocolate before it has cooled off. It takes you by surprise at first, but keeps you warm for a long time.
Henri Frederic Amiel
I don't regret the amount of love I have given you. I don't even remember how much it is. All I know is that I have loved you to the fullest with no limits, no doubt and no fear.
So I take you to the beach, and walk along the sand, And I'll make you a heart pendant, with a pebble held in my hand. And I'll carve it like a necklace, so the heart falls where your chest is, And now a piece of me, is a piece of the beach, and it falls just where it needs to be, and rests peacefully. You just need to breathe, to feel my heart against yours now, against yours now.

What a talented man! Such a great thinker and writer, friend of us all! The truth said in such a poetic way! This man was brilliant so his books are timeless. I so enjoy reading his works. I love "The Profit". If you have not read it find one and take your time so that each word sinks in to you soul. For the first time, all the major works of this beloved writer are gathered together in one hardcover volume. Thought-provoking collection of life-affirming parables and poems by the author of The Prophet, many casting an ironic light on the beliefs, aspirations, and vanities of humankind. Poet, artist, and mystic, Kahlil Gibran was born in 1883 to a poor Christian family in Lebanon and immigrated to the United States as an adolescent. Kahlil Gibran’s masterpiece, The Prophet, is one of the most beloved classics of our time. Published in 1923, it has been translated into more than twenty languages, and the American editions alone have sold more than nine million copies.This is a book of poetic essays that he began while still a youth in Lebanon, is one of the most cherished books of our time and has sold millions of copies in more than twenty languages since its publication in 1923. But all of Gibran’s works—essays, stories, parables, and prose poems—are imbued with equally powerful simplicity and wisdom, whether they are addressing marriage or children, friendship or grief, work or pleasure. Perhaps no other twentieth-century writer has touched the hearts and minds of so remarkably varied and widespread a readership. Included in his volumes are The Prophet, The Wanderer, Jesus the Son of Man, A Tear and a Smile, Spirits Rebellious, Nymphs of the Valley, Prose Poems, The Garden of the Prophet, The Earth Gods, Sand and Foam, The Forerunner, and The Madman.
Quotes "I have existed from all eternity and, behold, I am here; and I shall exist till the end of time, for my being has no end." --The Vision: Reflections on the Way of the Soul "Vain are the beliefs and teachings that make man miserable, and false is the goodness that leads him into sorrow and despair, for it is man's purpose to be happy on this earth and lead the way to felicity and preach its gospel wherever he goes." --from "Spirits Rebellious" (1908) "A sense of humor is a sense of proportion." --from "Sand and Foam" (1926) "Let us disperse from our aloofness and serve the weak who made us strong, and cleanse the country in which we live. Let us teach this miserable nation to smile and rejoice with heaven's bounty and glory of life and freedom." --from "Spirits Rebellious" (1908) For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.
"You are your own forerunner, and the towers you have built are but the foundation of your giant-self. And that self too shall be a foundation.
"And I too am my own forerunner, for the long shadow stretching before me at sunrise shall gather under my feet at the noon hour. Yet another sunrise shall lay another shadow before me, and that also shall be gathered at another noon." --from "The Forerunner" (1920) "Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy." "Life without liberty is like a body without spirit." "Love... it surrounds every being and extends slowly to embrace all that shall be." "Say not that the Divine is in your Heart, but rather, you are in the Heart of the Divine" “I have found both freedom and safety in my madness; the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us.” "All our words are but crumbs that fall down from the feast of the mind."
"To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but at what he aspires to." "Love and doubt have never been on speaking terms." "I wash my hands of those who imagine chattering to be knowledge, silence to be ignorance, and affection to be art." "A friend who is far away is sometimes much nearer than one who is at hand. Is not the mountain far more awe-inspiring and more clearly visible to one passing through the valley than to those who inhabit the mountain?" “For what is evil but good tortured by its own hunger and thirst?” "I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit." "Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and too selfish to seek other than itself." "The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind." “To belittle, you have to be little.” “Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.”
"The "I" in me, my friend, dwells in the house of silence, and therein it shall remain for ever more, unperceived, unapproachable. I would not have thee believe in what I say nor trust in what I do — for my words are naught but thy own thoughts in sound and my deeds thy own hopes in action." from "The Madman: His Parables and Poems" (1918) "Your daily life is your temple and your religion. When you enter into it take with you your all." "If the other person injures you, you may forget the injury; but if you injure him you will always remember." "Safeguarding the rights of others is the most noble and beautiful end of a human being." "When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight." "Sadness is but a wall between two gardens." "Love one another, but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls." "Yesterday we obeyed kings and bent our necks before emperors. But today we kneel only to truth, follow only beauty, and obey only love."
"Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. "Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need." "If you reveal your secrets to the wind, you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees." "Faith is an oasis in the heart which will never be reached by the caravan of thinking." "Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit." "And ever has it been known that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation." "But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls." "Faith is a knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof." "I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers."
"Of life's two chief prizes, beauty and truth, I found the first in a loving heart and the second in a laborer's hand." "In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed." "Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother." “No man can reveal to you aught but that which already lies half asleep in the dawning of your knowledge. The teacher who walks in the shadow of the temple, among his followers, gives not of his wisdom but rather of his faith and his lovingness. If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind.” -- The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran "Vain are the beliefs and teachings that make man miserable, and false is the goodness that leads him into sorrow and despair, for it is man's purpose to be happy on this earth and lead the way to felicity and preach its gospel wherever he goes." --from "Spirits Rebellious" (1908)
This is from The Vision 'Life without rebellion is like the seasons without spring. Rebellion without truth is like spring in a bleak, arid desert...Life, rebellion, and truth—three persons in one substance, accepting no separation or alteration'. Further down it concludes, 'Love and what generates it. Rebellion and what creates it. Liberty and what nourishes it. Three manifestations of God. And God is the conscience of the rational world'. "Your thought advocates Judaism, Brahmanism, Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam. In my thought there is only one universal religion, whose varied paths are but the fingers of the loving hand of the Supreme Being. In your thought there are the rich, the poor, and the beggared. My thought holds that there are no riches but life; that we are all beggars, and no benefactor exists save life herself." --from "Your Thought and Mine"
A Lebanese artist, writer, and the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu. The author of The Prophet (1923). My person of inspiration. The person who reveals the majesty and beauty of the language. Without Khalil Gibran the world would be a much darker place. He was an extraordinary person with ceaseless energy who constantly sprayed light around him. His poetry is a prayer for prophecy and a treasury of the vision and words of God. “Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.“
“Yesterday is but today's memory, and tomorrow is today's dream.“
Pleasure is a freedom-song, But it is not freedom.
It is the blossoming of your desires,
But it is not their fruit.
It is a depth calling unto a height, But it is not the deep nor the high. It is the caged taking wing,
But it is not space encompassed.
And, in very truth, pleasure is a freedom song.
And I fain would have you sing it with fullness of heart; yet I would not have you lose your hearts in the singing.
Some of your youth seek pleasure as if it were all, and they are judged and rebuked.
I would not judge nor rebuke them. I would have them seek.
For they shall find pleasure, but not her alone;
Seven are her sisters, and the least of them is more beautiful than pleasure.
Have you not heard of the man who was digging in the earth for roots and found a treasure?
And some of your elders remember pleasures with regret like wrongs committed in drunkenness.
But regret is the beclouding of the mind and not its chastisement.
They should remember their pleasures with gratitude, as they would the harvest of a summer.
Yet if it comforts them to regret, let them be comforted.
And there are among you those who are neither young to seek nor old to remember;
And in their fear of seeking and remembering they shun all pleasures, lest they neglect the spirit or offend against it.
But even in their foregoing is their pleasure.
And thus they too find a treasure though they dig for roots with quivering hands.
But tell me, who is he that can offend the spirit?
Shall the nightingale offend the stillness of the night, or the firefly the stars?
And shall your flame or your smoke burden the wind?
Think you the spirit is a still pool which you can trouble with a staff?
Oftentimes in denying yourself pleasure you do but store the desire in the recesses of your being.
Who knows but that which seems omitted today, waits for tomorrow?
Even your body knows its heritage and its rightful need and will not be deceived.
And your body is the harp of your soul,
And it is yours to bring forth sweet music from it or confused sounds.
And now you ask in your heart, "How shall we distinguish that which is good in pleasure from that which is not good?"
Go to your fields and your gardens, and you shall learn that it is the pleasure of the bee to gather honey of the flower,
But it is also the pleasure of the flower to yield its honey to the bee.
For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life,
And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love,
And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy.
People of Orphalese, be in your pleasures like the flowers and the bees.
On Children Kahlil Gibran Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday. You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth. The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far. Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness; For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
so He loves also the bow that is stable.
On Joy and Sorrow Kahlil Gibran Your joy is your sorrow unmasked. And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears. And how else can it be? The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain. Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter's oven? And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed with knives? When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.
Some of you say, "Joy is greater than sorrow," and others say, "Nay, sorrow is the greater." But I say unto you, they are inseparable. Together they come, and when one sits, alone with you at your board, remember that the other is asleep upon your bed. Verily you are suspended like scales between your sorrow and your joy. Only when you are empty are you at standstill and balanced.
When the treasure-keeper lifts you to weigh his gold and his silver, needs must your joy or your sorrow rise or fall.
When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams
as the north wind lays waste the garden.
For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.
Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.
He threshes you to make you naked.
He sifts you to free you from your husks.
He grinds you to whiteness.
He kneads you until you are pliant;
And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God's sacred feast.
All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life's heart.
But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure,
Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor,
Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.
Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love.
When you love you should not say, "God is in my heart," but rather, "I am in the heart of God."
And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.
Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.
American Crystal Makviy from Oklahoma U.S. says she personally met God, and publicly revealed what he looked like. 36-year old Crystal was dead for 9 minutes after an operation of the pancreas. She said that in those few minutes she was in the Other world. The American said that the gates of Heaven opened for her,so she met the Lord, who never appeared in a human form. God's presence was sensed by the positive energy and bright light, which overran Crystal. She said that she was able to talk with this power without words. The answers that she wanted to receive appeared visually. Crystal Makviy revealed that 9 minutes before her death she did not believe in God. She lost her faith in him at the age of 12 when she was brutally abused by his father.Because of the suffering that she has been subject to, Crystal often sent requests to the Lord, but her prayers were unanswered. After her meeting with the Lord the American claims that she has completely liberated herself from the doubts about the existence of a higher power. She reveals that her burden for years has now been gone. Crystal wanted to stay in Heaven, but God answered that there was something more to give to the earthly world, because she was a mother of 4 children . On this occasion, scientists were able to prove by a formula that there is a supreme being who created everything around us. The medieval philosopher Anselm the founder of scholasticism in the XI century pioneered the idea of the existence of God. Godel's theorem was from 1970 suggests that God exists on the basis of logical and mathematical reasoning. The Scientists Christoph Bentsmuler and Bruno Waltsenwogel were able to show that the arguments of Godel were mathematically correct. Experts have used the conventional computer MacBook, to prove the thesis that God exists and technology only complements and supports science in the quest of God.
Leave a room in your soul for mercy, love and kindness to all. God is in our souls, but how many times people look within themselves! And once you find Him, realize that He has always been there for us from our birth to our physical death.
Dutch doctors gathered systematic data obtained from interviews with survivors from clinical death . They conducted interviews with 344 patients who returned from a state of clinical death. Their ages were from 26 to 92 years, three quarters of them turned out to be men. The doctors had conversations with people who were in a state of continuous coma to explain what they experienced. Eighteen percent of the resurrected remembered details about many things in the minutes when they could not feel nor hear or see. Twelve percent said they met dead relatives and friends. According to the Dutch experts these rates are sufficient for us to rethink our concepts of human consciousness. Life after death Most experts that consciousness is a product of the activity of the human brain in a physical sense. But if we take into account the experience of people who have experienced clinical death, we could conclude that perhaps people are conscious even when their brains do not show any signs of activity that can be registered by electrical apparatus. According to the Dutch doctors that state looks like a TV - if you open it, there you will not find a program because the TV is only a receiver. When you turn off the receiver, the TV program is still there but you cannot see it. The same thing with the brain - when it turns off your mind is there, but you can feel it in your body. The fact that people remember for years what they have experienced in clinical death breaks the idea that visions in clinical death are the result of failures of the memory. Anyone who has gone through clinical death changed dramatically his lifestyle. Clinical death changes the character, habits and behavior of these people and they no longer fear death, but treat the people around them with incredible love .
Nobody knows what happens after death. But the veil of ignorance slips open through the stories of people who have experienced clinical death. The phenomenon of clinical death takes about five or six minutes because then there is no way a person can be brought back to life. All the functions of the physiological body stop. Usually people who have experienced clinical death, tell stories about how they heard the doctors declare them dead. There follows a release of the soul from the body, and one has the feeling that hepasses at great speed through a tunnel at the end of which there is a visible light. His life passes like a film tape over his eyes , he meets dead relatives and friends. This is common in the stories of all the people who have come back from the other world. Some people see pictures associated with horror and fear. The American Thomas Welch was pronounced dead after an accident when cutting trees. After being declared dead, he began to breathe and after his cure he described interesting details about Clinical death. "I met my friends who had died. I felt ashamed to be offensive to them before. I wanted to apologize to them in some way, but then I saw a man coming toward me. His face was barely visible but illuminated by the light, so when he approached, I saw that his eyes emit only kindness. Then, as if someone pulled me out of this place and then I started breathing again," he says.
Kenneth Smith passed the test of clinical death, when he was about twenty years old. As he lay in his house, his heart stopped and he felt that out of his body. "I got to fly to a deep chasm, flew to the bottom of it and then I felt the presence of a ball of light that guided me. Then I heard a voice that made everything vibrate, and suddenly I saw the room where my body lay. I saw my grandmother, who was crying to me and said, "Honey, I thought you were dead! " American Betty Smith fell from a roof and got alive, but spent a few minutes in clinical death. "I was floating in a tunnel and I flew to some light beings that gave me security. After that, all got lit up by a bright light and I went to a lovely meadow. There was my grandmother and my grandfather, my friends and even my beloved cat that I had as a child. I felt happy, I wanted to stay forever with them when I felt something pulling me back to the tunnel. I resisted with all my strength, but within seconds I felt that I could not go back to that wonderful place. "
Make every act of your life sacred. Choose every act of your life as you choose a lover. Maybe you will not become very rich, and there's no need. Wealth will come to you in a completely different form: the wealth of being blissfully happy, contented, ecstatic. Choose your work but not according to others - allow it to grow from your heart. Every action, that you put your heart in, becomes sacred.
If you love to the full, you will not have much time and energy to be angry. If you do not love, you will have a lot of time and energy to be angry and you will look for situations to be angry.
I saw my Lord in my dreams and I asked, “How am I to find You?” He replied, “Leave yourself and come!” BÂYEZÎD BISTÂMÎ
To make the right decisions, you should contact your soul. To do this, you should try loneliness and longing that most people fear. Only in the silence you hear the truth .
There are no superior and inferior people or creatures. We are all equal, including teacher and student. And yet, the message is that one should not follow anyone. Just be yourself. Whenever we go after someone and stand in his shadow we cannot grow. In the shadow everything dies.
It is important to observe the processes that take place in us to see where our desires spring from, what is the process that has provoked us to want something. There must be issues rather than seeking answers. The answers lead to the accumulation of information that enhances the human ego and the intellect is jammed with information. Your head is filled with thoughts and you cannot do the much-needed breaks. So if you have any questions, do not ask your teachers to answer but search for them yourself.
Rumi, our beloved teacher, said: "Seek for the water as we are burning from the thirst." The correct answer, if you find it, can change your life, your DNA can even get rid of a disease. The ready response that we get does not change us and does not always help us. The truth is not in the pursuit of something, but in self-questioning. Finding God, that would be enough for you. But If you do not find Him, look for someone who has found Him to bring you to Him. ذو النون المصري
Our true nature is the divine essence. The man has lost it because he got chocked with information. Yoga helps us take a breakfrom our thoughts.This is the purpose of the exercise. Man and God are one.
Look around you. There's a sunrise, sunset, cloudy or clear blue sky.
Know that Nature is part of Creation.
Recognize and acknowledge the Divine around you.
Close your eyes.
Feel your spirit; let it soar.
Know that your spirit is part of Creation.
Recognize and acknowledge the Divine within you.
It is pointless trying to know where the way leads. Think only about your first step, the rest will come.
The life we live is just a colorful and deposit toy. Some of us take it so seriously and fight and cry for it. Some of us break and throw it. Either we give extreme importance, either not enough. Better to stay far from extremes.
If you look around, you can find a face of God in each thing, because He is not hidden in a church, in a mosque, or a synagogue, but everywhere. As there is no one who lives after seeing him, there is also no one dying after seeing him. Who finds Him, stays forever with him.
A life without love is a waste. “Should I look for spiritual love, or material, or physical love?”, don’t ask yourself this question. Discrimination leads to discrimination. Love does not need any name, category or definition. Love is a world itself. Either you are in, at the center…either you are out, yearning.
The chemistry of mind is different from the chemistry of love. The mind is careful, suspicious, he advances little by little. He advices “Be careful, protect yourself” Whereas love says “Let yourself, go!”
The mind is strong, never fells down, while love hurts itself, fells into ruins. But isn’t it in ruins that we mostly find the treasures? A broken heart hides so many treasures. You can be everything in life but the important thing is to be a good person.
Instead of resisting to changes, surrender. Let life be with you, not against you. If you think “My life will be upside down” don’t worry. How do you know down is not better than upside?
The real dirt is not outside, but inside, in our hearts. We can wash all stains with water. The only one we can’t remove is the grudge and the bad intentions sticking to our hearts.
This world is like a mountain. Your echo depends on you. If you scream good things, the world will give it back. If you scream bad things, the world will give it back. Even if someone says badly about you, speak well about him. Change your heart to change the world.
There are more fake guides, teachers in the world than stars.
The real guide is the one who makes you see your inner beauty,
not the one who wants to be admired and followed.
We all have different faces, characters and names. If God wanted us to be all same, He would have done it. Not to respect the differences, to accuse the others for our faults is not to respect God.
Joy is like pure clear water; wherever it flows, wondrous blossoms grow...Sorrow is like a black flood; wherever it flows it wilts the blossoms. A good man complains of no one; he does not look to faults.
A True Heart
Oh heart! Go and be one of those who contemplate the end!
In the universe of strangeness
Be one of those of certainty!
If you want to ride on the morning wind,
Be the dust stirred by the dervishes!
The Dance of the People of God
Within the Heart of My Faithful Servant
See everything within yourself: Moses, Jesus, Abraham, Noah, Adam, Eve, Asia (Pharaoh's wife), Elias, Pharaoh and Nimrod, are all within you.
You are an infinite universe; what are the earth and the skies in comparison? Didn't God say: "My heavens and my earth cannot contain Me, but I can be contained within the heart of a faithful servant of mine."? You will not find Me in the heavens; you will not find Me on the Throne!
Just as patience is needed for the crescent moon to become full, for the rain on the rocks to turn them to rubies, and for the drops that rain onto the sea to turn into pearls, they also would become expert tightrope walkers through patience and practice. With time, unripe grapes can become halva.
Your beauty is the grain
within the trap of troubles.
It is such a candle
That constantly it burns our moths.
Oh Darling! I love the chains of your hair,
Because they fit the feet of my crazy ruined heart.
