Is not time
Is not space
Is not an object
Is not a subject
Is not religion..
Yet all of these are
made only of it...
It is Self realization
It is what
must be known
can be known..
And..it is not an it..

The Real Story Behind "Amazing Grace"
“It does not matter what comes up. What matters is who you are, the one perceiving it.”
― Mooji, White Fire: Spiritual insights and teachings of advaita zen master Mooji
“I have had to experience so much stupidity, so many vices, so much error, so much nausea, disillusionment and sorrow, just in order to become a child again and begin anew. I had to experience despair, I had to sink to the greatest mental depths, to thoughts of suicide, in order to experience grace.”
― Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha
“You are so weak. Give up to grace.
The ocean takes care of each wave till it gets to shore.
You need more help than you know.”
― Rumi, The Essential Rumi
“Grace doesn't depend on suffering to exist, but where there is suffering you will find grace in many facets and colors.”
― William Paul Young, The Shack
“All the natural movements of the soul are controlled by laws analogous to those of physical gravity. Grace is the only exception. Grace fills empty spaces, but it can only enter where there is a void to receive it, and it is grace itself which makes this void. The imagination is continually at work filling up all the fissures through which grace might pass.”
― Simone Weil, Gravity and Grace
“All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
― Cormac McCarthy, The Road
“Courage and grace is a formidable mixture. The only place to see it is the bullring.”
― Marlene Dietrich, Marlene Dietrich's ABC
“This grace of God is a very great, strong, mighty and active thing. It does not lie asleep in the soul. Grace hears, leads, drives, draws, changes, works all in man, and lets itself be distinctly felt and experienced. It is hidden, but its works are evident.”
― Martin Luther
1 Chronicles 17:16-17New King James Version (NKJV)
16 Then King David went in and sat before the Lord; and he said: “Who am I, O Lord God? And what is my house, that You have brought me this far? 17 And yet this was a small thing in Your sight, O God; and You have also spoken of Your servant’s house for a great while to come, and have regarded me according to the rank of a man of high degree, O Lord God.
