"The entire universe is flowing through your body.

EARTH in the food we eat.
WATER in what we drink.
FIRE from the Sun, Moon, & Stars
And in the AIR that we breathe.

But many people just notice the material side"

Lama Glenn Mullinโ€™

โ€œThe space of the universe is inseparable from the space of Awareness.โ€

Yesterday I remembered a delightful quote from Tulku Lobsang:
โ€œLove is not something you win.
Love is not something you lose.
Love is something you are.โ€

:brown_heart:

And today I feel like sharing an interesting mystery I found in Ireland about a Higher Loveโ€ฆ


Itโ€™s a beautiful poem written by St. Francis of Assisi from what I found with the help of some locals, but the thing is that this is the โ€œiconโ€ of Irelandโ€™s merchandisingโ€ฆ :rose: I found this very interestingโ€ฆ :cowboy_hat_face:

this reminded of a dream I had with Andrew last year, where he asked me โ€œWhat is the space between two people?โ€ to which I replied, โ€œLove is what connects usโ€.

yes, i received today a video today of a dog who was blind folded and someone was giving him meat to smell and then, giving lettuce leaves. After sometime the dog gets tired of it and starts โ€œcomplainingโ€ and an analogy is done to blame the government for doing this with usโ€ฆ my reply was โ€œif, instead of doing this video, the person connects with his friends and does something about what is needed in the world, I would call that a smart thing to do, instead of wasting energyโ€โ€ฆ hihihi no other answer came back :cowboy_hat_face:

โ€œIn the Name of Allah
The Most Compassionate, Most Merciful
All praise is for Allah
Lord of all worlds
The Most Compassionate, Most Merciful
Master of the Day of Judgment
You หนaloneหบ we worship
You หนaloneหบ we ask for help
Guide us along the Straight Path
The Path of those You have blessed
Not those You are displeased with
Or those who are astray.โ€
