“To find the true fulfillment we so desperately seek, is to choose to walk in love—to actually put love into action by reaching out and loving others. Every day can be exciting if we see ourselves as God’s secret agents, waiting to sprinkle a little salt on all the lives we encounter. And we know that because we are deeply loved by God, we can never run out of love—no matter how much we give away. ”
“Most of us were taught that God would love us if and when we change. In fact, God loves you so that you can change. What empowers change, what makes you desirous of change is the experience of love. It is that inherent experience of love that becomes the engine of change.”
- Richard Rohr
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.”
God has a plan for your life and it is greater than you can imagine.
Pray upon the Lord for guidance and direction. He know the desires of your heart and His perfect will awaits!
Faith: It knows God can DO all Things
Hope: It knows that God desires to bring his very best to you
Love: It desires what God Desires
“It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.”
-C. S. Lewis
Contemplation is meeting reality in its most simple and immediate form. The only way to do that is to get rid of your mental grids of judging, critiquing, and comparing. Every major religion, at its more mature levels, is trying to give you some kind of method to compartmentalize this dualistic mind. You do not fully process the moment by judging it, analyzing it, differentiating it; you must use a different processor. You must first respect anything for being exactly what it is, as it is. Like a clean mirror, you just reflect it back without any added distortions or filters. Then you can see things in their primal unity, as both “one” and yet still “distinct.”
~ Richard Rohr
“I could more easily contain Niagara Falls in a tea cup than I can comprehend the wild, uncontainable love of God!”
