Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists.” Herein lies the peace of God A Course in Miracles

Surrendered in death as it is in life

The sapling doesn’t want anything because it is at one with the totality, and the totality acts through it. “Look at the lilies of the field, how they grow” said Jesus, “They toil not, neither do they spin. Yet even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.” We could say […]

Faith

Faith is a state of openness or trust. To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don’t grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float. And the attitude of faith is the very opposite of clinging to belief, […]

You will find a cross in everything

Go where you will, seek what you will, you will not find a higher way, nor a less exalted but safer way, than the way of the holy cross. Arrange and order everything to suit your will and judgment, and still you will find that some suffering must always be borne, willingly or unwillingly, and […]

Amor Fati

My formula for greatness in a human being is amor fati: that one wants nothing to be different, not forward, not backward, not in all eternity. Not merely bear what is necessary, still less conceal it but love it.

Tranquility

Seek not that the things which happen should happen as you wish; but wish the things which happen to be as they are, and you will have a tranquil flow of life. Epictetus

Acceptance-3

Adopt a systematic study of the way all things change into one another: pay constant attention to this aspect of nature and train yourself in it. Nothing is so conducive to the greatness of mind. One so trained has divested himself of his body: recognizing that in almost no time he will have to leave […]

Acceptance-2

And then the beauty that is hidden (even and particularly) in the face of disaster, loss, and death… which everybody sooner or later will face in him or herself…and there, the beauty is not apparent on the surface of things… Miracles happen through surrender.

ٍEnglish.

Acceptance of what is…

To some people, surrender may have negative connotations, implying defeat, giving up, failing to rise to the challenges of life, becoming lethargic, and so on. True surrender, however, is something entirely different. It does not mean to passively put up with whatever situation you find yourself in and to do nothing about it. Nor does […]

Truth is something so noble that if God could turn aside from it, I could keep the truth and let God go. (+)
