We Can All Live in Total Harmony

I am releasing
everything that is not in harmony with
the Divine Light & Sound pattern of my Being,
& everything that is not in harmony with
the Divine Light & Sound pattern
of my Being is releasing me.
I am attracting
everything that is in harmony with
the Diving Light & Sound pattern of my Being,

& everything that is in harmony with
the Divine Light & Sound pattern
of my Being is attracting me.

Teach Us to Care about the Right Things

Blessed sister, holy mother,
spirit of the fountain, spirit of the garden,
Suffer us not to mock ourselves with falsehood
Teach us to care and not to care
Teach us to sit still
Even among these rocks,
Our peace in His will
And even among these rocks
Sister, mother
And spirit of the river, spirit of the sea,

Suffer me not to be separated
And let my cry come unto Thee.

—TS Eliot, 1927

Just Be and Bliss Will Arise

Trying to achieve something in the spiritual world is just as foolish
as trying to achieve something in the material world. There’s
nothing to achieve. There’s only letting go. As we let go more and
more of ego identifications, desires, and support systems, bliss

will arise.

Mother Teresa’s Favorite Prayer

Dear Jesus, help us to spread your fragrance everywhere we go.
Flood our souls with your spirit and life.
Penetrate and possess our whole being so utterly
that our lives may only be a radiance of yours.
Shine through us, and be so in us
that every person we should come in contact with
may feel your presence in our soul.
Let them look up and see no longer us, but only Jesus.
Stay with us, and then we shall begin to shine as you shine;
so to shine as to be a light to others;
the light, Jesus, will be all from you.
None of it will be ours.
It will be you shining on others through us.
Let us thus praise you in the way you love best,
by shining on those around us.
Let us preach you without preaching:
not by words, but by our example,
by the catching force,
the sympathetic influence of what we do,
the evident fullness of the love our hearts bear for you.
Amen. 

—Mother Teresa

Almighty God, the Refuge of all that are distressed, grant unto
us that in all trouble of this our mortal life, we may flee to the
knowledge of Thy lovingkindness and tender mercy; that so,
sheltering ourselves therein, the storms of life may pass over us,
and not shake the peace of God that is within us. Whatsoever this
life may bring us, grant that it may never take from us the full faith
that Thou art our Father. Grant us Thy light, that we may have life,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen..

All Things Calm

You are the peace of all things calm.
You are the place to hide from harm.
You are the light that shines in the dark.
You are the heart’s eternal spark.
You are the door that’s open wide.
You are the guest who waits inside.
You are the stranger at the door.
You are the calling of the poor.
You are my Lord and save me from ill.
You are the light, the truth, the way.
You are my Savior this very day.

—Medieval Celtic Chant

Your Infinite Peace

Center of all centers, core of cores,
almond, self-enclosed and growing sweet—
all this universe, to the furthest stars
and beyond them, is your flesh, your fruit.

Now you feel how nothing clings to you;
your vast shell reaches into endless space,
and there the rich, thick fluids rise and flow,
illuminated in your infinite peace.

A billion stars go spinning through the night,
blazing high above your head.
But in you is the presence that will be,
when all the stars are dead.

—Rainer Maria Rilke
