Today was a beautiful day. A bit of a break from the horrible high heat and humidity that has been making life miserable. I don't have much thought going on in my head that's my own, though, so I think I'll just share some quotes from others.
my door is SOOO dirty that this picture is awful,
but I just think he's so cute...
The first is this small item from Emmanuel's book
At any moment the heart can open
At any moment the karmic structure
can be completely overcome
by the willingness of the soul
You will knowyour next stepfrom this step.You will never find itany other way.Your intellectdoes not know it.You cannot thinkGod's realityYou can onlyExperience it.
And finally from Emmanuel's Book (some of them passages, like this one, are responses to questions).
How do I open my heart so I can hear God?By relaxing all of the devicesthat you have used through the centuriesto keep it closed.The natural state of the heart is open.Note how you struggleagainst what you are seeking.It will heop you to answerthese questions.How do I find my way?How do I open my heart/How do I touch the God within?How do I hear the spirits that are with me?How do I learn to love?How do I grow to become who I am?By ceasing to be who you are not.There is not a heart that existsin your human worldthat, if it were assured of safety,would not open instantly.It is all an issue of fear.
Some things I'm grateful for today:
