It is easy to understand God as long as you don’t try to explain him.
We are members of a vast cosmic orchestra in which each living instrument is essential to the complementary and harmonious playing of the whole.
– J. Allen Boone
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.
– Albert Einstein
I am in love with no other than myself,
and my very separation is my union…
I am my beloved and my lover;
I am my knight and my maiden.
– Ibn ‘Arabi
Place your mind before the mirror of eternity,
place your soul in the brightness of His glory,
place your heart in the image of the divine essence
and transform yourself by contemplation
utterly into the image of His divinity,
that you too may feel what His friends feel as they taste
the hidden sweetness that God himself has set aside
from the beginning for those who love Him.
Casting aside all things in this false and troubled world
that ensnare those who love them blindly,
give all your love to Him who gave Himself in all
for you to love:
Whose beauty the sun and moon admire, and whose gifts
are abundant and precious and grand without end.
– Saint Clare of Assisi
He travels with whoever looks for Him,
and having taken the seeker by the hand,
He arouses him to go in search of himself.
That we may merge into the deep and dazzling darkness, vanish into it, dissolve in it forever in an unbelievable bliss beyond imagination, for absolute nothingness represents absolute bliss.
– Gregory of Nyssa
