Spirituality Quote of the Week

God is ever-present in our world in the face of the poor, waiting to be met. In the powerless, one can find the power of God; in the voiceless, one can hear the voice of God; in the impoverished, one can find God's treasures; in the weak, one can find God's strength; and in the unattractive, one can find God's beauty.

Spirituality Quote of the Week

The spiritual life, to which art belongs and of which she is one of the mightiest elements, is a complicated but definite and easily definable movement forwards and upwards. This movement is the movement of experience. It may take different forms, but it holds at bottom to the same inner thought and purpose.

-- Wassily Kandinsky

Family is most truly family in its complexity, including its failures and weaknesses. In my own family, the uncle who was my ideal source of wisdom and morality was also the one who drank excessively and who scandalized the rest by refusing to go to church.

Spirituality Quote of the Week

In my view, the realistic goal to be attained through spiritual practice is not some permanent state of enlightenment that admits of no further efforts, but a capacity to be free in this moment, in the midst of whatever is happening. If you can do that, you have already solved most of the problems you will encounter in life.

-- Sam Harris
