Growing up Catholic, it seems, was rich with Saints that could help you when times were rough. Saint Anthony, the patron saint of lost causes, seemed to be the one I turned to when things weren’t going my way. Nowadays though I prefer to think of the Hindu Deity Lord Ganesha. http://cafetruth.com/articles/removing-the-obstacles-day-293/

She shows you the real, Divine you, say her followers, the one that's just like her: motivated by love. Despite her amiable image, this ruthless ego-crushing is Amma's real goal." -- O Magazine Meredith Bryan

Even after all this time the Sun never says to the Earth, "you owe me". Look what happens with a love like that. It lights the whole sky. Sufi poet Hafiz.
Sufi poet Hafiz - "Even After All this time The sun never says To the Earth, 'You owe me.' Look What Happens With a love like that. It lights the Whole Sky."
This thought-provoking repin from Sufi Poet Hafiz via Pinterest buddy Trina Killian. Love is generous and joyful and steadfast. It needs and expects nothing in return. Love just IS. Like the Sun, Moon and Stars. Like the air we breathe. Pinned here is one of my blog classics from October 24, 2010 on authenticity and the transformative power of embracing all aspects of ourselves and others with unconditional Love.

"Perhaps they are not really stars in the sky but, rather, openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy." ~ Eskimo legend
This Eskimo Legend is perhaps one of my favorite quotes (..thoughts, perceptions...)

Tadao Ando...spiritual architecture
Natural Light, Church Designed, Idea, Create Spaces, Design Architecture, Sun S Natural, Light Tadao
Church of the Light - Designed by Tadao Ando Ando used Buddhist principles of simplicity and emptiness to create spaces for Christian worship. Something our churches should be looking at and questioning.
Tadao Ando's church of the light. He used Buddhist principles to design this Christian church. I love the idea of natural light coming in to exemplify the cross.
This captures my idea of faith. The space is full of the Sun's natural light, as is the soul that has faith. (tadao ando)
More effctive use of natural light.. The Church of Art designed by Tadao Ando. Built in 1989 in the city of Ibaraki, Osaka Prefecture, it is the main Chapel of the Ibaraki Kasugaoka Church.
The space is full of the Sun's natural light, as is the soul that has faith. Very strong representation of a church and the light omits by having an opening of a shape of a cross.
Tadao Ando - church of the light. writing a paper on this guy. interesting how he used buddhist principles to design a christian church. - What a "brilliant" idea!

True meditation has no direction or goal. It is pure wordless surrender, pure silent prayer. All methods aimed at achieving a certain state of mind are limited, impermanent, and conditioned. Fascination with states leads only to bondage and dependency. True meditation is effortless stillness, abidance as primordial being. - Adyashanti from The Way of Liberation
