I look into your eyes and see the universe not yet born.. &.. Gözlerinin içine bakıyorum ve henüz doğmamış kainatı görüyorum. – Rumi

My Treasure is in Heaven and my soul is always seeking Oneness with the Beloved.

I once had a thousand desires. But in my one desire to know you all else melted away.

Bir zamanlar binlerce arzum vardı. Ama bunlardan sadece biri olan , seni bilmek arzumda, hepsi eridi gitti.

It Only Says It’s Open

The Bible Passage:

1 Corinthians 13:12
King James Version (KJV)

12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

Broken Light: A Photography Collective

Photo taken by contributor Kyle Anderson, a man from Saskatchewan, Canada. Kyle has struggled with an anxiety disorder for most of his life. After a traumatic accident ended his career in health care, his life became unmanageable and he sought out the help that he so desperately needed. As a longtime photographer, when he found Broken Light Collective in an article it instantly resonated. He now runs a photography program at his local mental health association. He has since become a certified mental health peer specialist and advocate. He also writes local editorial and uses his platform to help erase the stigma of mental illness in his community.

About this photo: “I look at the sign and it invites me in. My own reflection however, keeps me on the other side of the glass. What was it that St. Paul said? Something about when perfection comes, then shall we see clearly?…

As The Story Goes

24 Mar

Amen to Brother Harlon!! I’ve been listening to Affirming Inspiration & Uplifting videos on YouTube and downloading spiritual podcasts to my devices. While I was on vacation I went with my Japanese friend to her Buddhist Temple and I’m making an effort to really observe Lent this year in terms of allowing myself to “Just Be.”

A Patient Voice

The stories we tell about ourselves and our lives either empower or disempower us.

Affirm your narrative by basing it on the nobility of your truths and not on distorted memories, past regrets or current doubts.

We have agency. We don’t have to be victims. We can start writing a new script for the next part of our lives where the choices we make create a beautiful storyline.

Four poisons of the heart: 1. Unnecessary talking. 2. Unrestrained glances. 3. Too much food. 4. Keeping bad company.

Kalbin zehiri dört şeydir; 1. Gereksiz konuşmalar. 2. Gereksiz bakışlar. 3. Gereksiz yemeler. 4. Gereksiz birliktelikler.

| Ibn Al-Qayyim al-Jawziyaa

May Allah protect us from all these evils and keep us steadfast in remembering Him in ease and adversity.

Kaepernick is putting his money, and power, where his mouth is

Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick continues to make philanthropic waves after securing a way to provide relief to the people of Somalia. After joining a Twitter campaign beseeching Turkish Airlines to send a cargo plane with aid, the former quarterback announced on Twitter Friday that he had secured one from the airline to bring supplies to the East African nation.

Turkish Airlines is one of the few that travel to Somalia, and the flight is expected to take place March 27.

The GoFundMe page’s goal is $1 million, a number it quickly surpassed in 24 hours.

“This is a victory for the people, this is a victory for the people of Somalia,” said Kaepernick. “It was done out of love, out of respect for these people. We wanted…

What is Nurturing Thursday, you ask?

Think about it … In our amazing but highly competitive and aggressive society:

  • How often do we extend to ourselves … the same courtesies, considerations, nurturing, forgiveness and understanding we bestow a loved one, a friend, or even a stranger?

With the ongoing intention to accept myself with an open heart rather than label myself as “good” or “bad” OR a “success” or “failure” … I challenge myself, and I challenge YOU to  treat ourselves with the…
