Above all temples You chiefly prefer Oh Spirit
The heart upright and pure.

Instruct me You who know
For You were present from the first.

You sat dove like with might and outspread wings
Brooding over the vast abyss and made it pregnant.

Oh Spirit what in me Is dark Illumine.

O most high, almighty, good Lord God, to Thee belong praise, glory,
honour, and all blessing!
Praised be my Lord God with all His creatures; and specially our brother
the sun, who brings us the day, and who brings us the light; fair is he,
and shinning with a very great splendour: O Lord, he signifies to us
Thee!
Praised be my Lord for our sister the moon, and for the stars, the which
He has set clear and lovely in heaven.
Praised be my Lord for our brother the wind, and for air and cloud,
calms and all weather, by the which Thou upholdest life in all
creatures.
Praised be my Lord for our sister water, who is very serviceable unto us,
and humble, and precious, and clean.
Praised be my Lord for our brother fire, through whom Thou givest us
light in the darkness; and he is bright, and pleasant, and very mighty,
and strong.
Praised be my Lord for our mother the earth, the which doth sustain us
and keep us, and bringeth forth divers fruits, and flowers of many
colours, and grass.

Quote of the Moment

"If he falls in this conflict, then he falls by his own hand; for physically and externally understood, I can fall by the hand of another, but spiritually there is only one who can destroy me, and that is myself."

- Soren Kierkegaard

"The center of every man's existence is a dream. Death, disease, and insanity are merely material accidents, like a toothache or a twisted ankle. That these brutal forces always besiege and often capture the citadel does not prove that they are the citadel. "

- G. K. Chesterton

"Wisdom is so kind and wise that wherever you may look you can learn something about God. Why would not the omnipresent teach that way? "

- St. Catherine Of Siena

"If God said 'Rumi pay homage to everything that has helped you enter my arms' There would not be one experience of my life, not one thought, not one feeling, not any act, I would not bow to. "

""Is there anything that I can do to make myself enlightened?" "As little as you can do to make the sun rise in the morning." "Then of what use are the spiritual exercises you prescribe?" "To make sure you are not asleep when the sun begins to rise." "

- Anthony De Mello

"If you persist in trying to attain what is never attained (It is Tao's Gift!), If you persist in making effort to obtain what effort cannot get, If you persist in reasoning about what cannot be understood, You will be destroyed by the very thing you seek. To know when to stop, To know when you can get no further by your own action, This is the right beginning! "

- Thomas Merton
