With passion pray

 Rumi

“With passion pray. With passion make love. With passion eat and drink and dance and play. Why look like a dead fish in this ocean of God?”



Regret, that sinking feeling in the bottom of your stomach.

We’ve all been there, wishing we could have another chance.

But, it is in this very feeling in which our return to the One happens.

The Divine Essence is always seeking our return to Him,

waiting for us to seek reconciliation with Him and wash away the mistake.

And we give ourselves plenty of opportunity for returning.

Darkness wants you to keep mistakes hidden but once you bring

the Light in, the experience fades and leaves the lesson.

Turn back to the Essence of the One

and rejoice that the mistake opened

the door for reconnection.
