In His Will is our Peace

“But you who are so happy here, tell me:
do you aspire to a more profound insight, or a greater ecstasy?”

She smiled a little, as did the shades beside her;
then answered with such gladness that her whole being seemed to glow with love’s first fire:

‘Brother, God’s generosity itself calms our will,
and makes us want no more than what we have, and long for nothing else.
If we desired any greater bliss,
we would not be in harmony with Him
whose love assigns us to a lower place.

The essence of this joy
is that we all have given up our personal desires
so that our will is merged with God’s own will.

Therefore our rank in heaven, from height to height,
is just as dear to each particular soul
as to the Master who appointed it.

In His will is our peace: It is the sea
into which all currents and all streams
empty themselves, for all eternity.”

~Dante Alighieri

From Song of Songs

From Song of Songs

King Solomon

There is one who sings the song of his soul, discovering in his soul everything – utter fulfillment.

There is one who sings the song of his people. Emerging from the private circle of his soul – not expansive enough, not yet tranquil – he strives for fierce heights, clinging to the entire community of Israel in tender love. Together with her, he sings her song, feels her anguish, delights in her hopes. He conceives profound insights into her past and her future deftly probing, the inwardness of her spirit with the wisdom of love.

Then there is one whose soul expands until it extends beyond the border of Israel, singing the song of humanity. In the glory of the entire human race, in the glory of the human form, his spirit spreads, aspiring to the goal of humankind, envisioning his consummation. From the spring of life, he draws all his deepest reflections, his searching, striving and vision.

Then there is one who expands even further until he unties with all of existence, with all creatures, with all worlds singing a song with them all.

There is one who ascends with all these songs in unison-the song of the soul, the song of the nation, the song of humanity, the song of the cosmos-resounding together, blending in harmony, circulating the sap of life, the sound of holy joy.

 

Before the Sunrise

In this world where we count seconds, minutes, hours …

Another day starts and it is the last one of the year.

In the world where there is no last or first,

Where there is no count of years, hours, minutes or seconds,

Everything is rejoicing in the nothingness of time and space.

Soon fireworks will color the skies reaching the stars,

Bringing our messages to our loved ones that left this world …

This world where we count seconds, minutes and hours.

I Remember …

Moments of Love, Joy, Peace.

Moments of suffering, agony, pain.

I embrace all of them and let them fly in the skies.

In this moment of unknowing there is a prayer in my heart.

May the Angels hear these words silently spoken from my soul.

May they assist  who is suffering now …

In this world where we count seconds, minutes, hours …

Before the sunrise,

Before the sunset.

With Gratitude and Faith for All That It Is Now

On Joy

Joy is born inside and allows us to See Beauty in each detail of Creation.

In a state of Joy the essence of each cell dances with enthusiasm

at the sound of the most vibrant music played from the heart.

We are grateful for everything that Is … just the way It Is …

not asking for more than opening and expanding in Gratitude.

Joy can come for one moment and yet

In Presence Joy lasts for Eternity.

Always Here

The external surroundings can change,

yet Presence, Love, Joy, Harmony, Simplicity, Kindness, Faith,

exist beyond the surroundings.

I can be living in a cave or in the most amazing castle and that doesn’t create difference for what I Am.

The True Self exists beyond space and time, always Here and  Real.
