Quote 62: An invitation

You can see from other angles! It is possible to understand beyond what is seemingly obvious. God has infinite faces and the Universe is infinite as manifestation of the Divine.
Each manifestation is manifold. To glimpse this, it is enough to want to see without the eyes of matter. You have to feel, you have to meditate, you have to have a flexible mind.
This book is like an open window, for a thousand different landscapes.
However, it is not intended to confuse, but rather to broaden the possibilities of understanding life.
Although it is only a drop in the Cosmic Ocean, let us remember that the sea depends on each drop that forms it.
In a drop of water there are hidden potentials and life.
I invite you to explore this drop of spiritual sweat.
Sufi, February 6, 2009. (Medium Pablo de Salamanca)

Quote 58: Hungry of war, thirsty of blood

One does not make wars less likely by formulating rules of warfare… War cannot be humanized. It can only be eliminated…”

An empty stomach is not a good political advisor.

Nationalism is an infantile sickness. It is the measles of the human race.

The release of atomic energy has not created a new problem. It has merely made more urgent the necessity of solving an existing one.

Why does this applied science, which saves work and makes life easier, bring us so little
happiness? The simple answer runs: Because we have not yet learned to make sensible use of it.

The discovery of nuclear chain reactions need not bring about the destruction of mankind any more than did the discovery of matches. We only must do everything in our power to safeguard against its abuse. Only a supranational organization, equipped with a sufficiently strong executive power, can protect us.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage — to move in the opposite direction.

We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive.

Albert Einstein

Quote 57: Forgive always

Islam:

That person is nearest to God, who pardons, when he has someone in his power, one who would have injured him.

The greatest Jihad is to battle your own soul. To fight the evil within yourself

Anyone who walks with a wrong doer in order to strengthen him knowing all the while that he is a wrong doer, has departed from Islam.

A perfect Muslim is one from whose tongue and hands mankind is safe, and a true emigrant [muhajir] is one who flees from what God has forbidden.

The messenger of God said to me (Anas), Son, if you are able, keep your heart from morning till night and from night till morning free from malice towards anyone; then he said, Oh! My son, this is one of my laws, and he who loves my laws loves me.

Allahu Akbar

 

Christianity:  “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

 

Quote 56: Free choice between good and evil

God leaves to our conscience the choice of the road we decide to follow, and the liberty of yielding to one or another of the opposing influences that act upon us.

Prayer is always acceptable to God when dictated by the heart, for the intention is everything in his sight; and the prayer of the heart is preferable to one read from a book, however beautiful it may be, if read with the lips rather than with the thought.

The more clearly a principle is understood by the intellect, the more inexcusable is the neglect to put it into practice.

Allan Kardec

Quote 55: Anxieties

“Casting all your anxiety upon him, because he careth for you” (I Peter, 5: 7).
Anxieties set many crimes and never build anything useful on Earth. Invariably, the rash man counts all odds against himself.

Opposing the anguished concerns, speak the lessons of patience of nature, in all sectors of the human journey.
If man were born to be anxious, it would mean that he came into the world, not in the category of a worker in a sanctifying task, but in desperation without remission.

If the creature reflected more sensibly he would recognize the content of service that the moments of each day can offer him and would know with great value to watch over his own patrimony.

Undoubtedly, landscapes will change incessantly, compelling us to face unpleasant surprises, arising from our inadequate attitude, joy or pain, but it represents the imposition of the law, our obligation to continue daily towards the good.

Anxiety will try to violate generous hearts, because the earthly roads unfold many obscure angles and problems of difficult solution, however, let’s not forget Pedro’s recipe.
Cast the restlessness on your hopes in Our Heavenly Father, because the Divine Love reflects on the well-being of all of us.

It is only right to desire the victory of light, to seek peace with perseverance, to discipline oneself in union with the higher planes, to insist on attuning to the higher spheres. Do not forget, however, that anxiety always precedes the action of falling. Emmanuel

Quote 54: Self-Knowledge

If you want to find yourself, get out of yourself.
How could achieve self-knowledge on climate of selfishness?
How to know who you are, not knowing how you react before others?
How can anyone deliver the time-consuming insights, if not far, there is hunger and pain, tear and suffering?
The Lord said, “Let shine your light …”.
He himself the light of the world, did not remain in the heavenly bliss of the blessed.
_ “I have come that you may have life, and life in abundance.”
If you wish to know yourself, do not close your eyes to the world, locking you in your
emotions.
In work action, which means help everyone, you will see, how you really are.

Quote 53: Peace, Love and Tolerance for the World

At each terrorist act what may happen, we should not permit, even being difficult, that the hate come into our heart.

Because the terrorists want to disunite, they want to destroy the noblest sense of tolerance that we have within us.
We all reap what we sow. All our actions generate a reaction. This is a universal law. It is the mathematics of God, Allah. One day they will also repent of their acts.


There will be a day when evil will be banished from the planet earth.
Even for those who believe in reincarnation laws, it is difficult to accept this.

But we have confidence in the future. Even an evil do not last forever.

That the governor of planet Earth, Jesus, bless you with peace, tolerance and love. Thank you so much
