Spirituality Quote of the Week

While I was standing there, quails began to whistle all over the field and in the wood. I had not heard any for weeks and thought sure they were all dead, for there have been hunters everywhere. No, there they are! Signs of life, of gentleness, of helplessness, of providence, of love. They just keep on existing and loving and making more quails and whistling in the bushes.

-- Thomas Merton

Spirituality Quote of the Week

Spirituality Quote of the Week

God is never the object of love. That's just another example of the egoic operating system splitting the field of perception. God is always and only the SUBJECT of love, flowing through our relationships, through our opportunities and also our challenges, through each and every one of the particular conditions we find ourselves in at any given moment. No one and nothing is excluded.

-- Cynthia Bourgeault
