Dress in the flower of God’s qualities
not your torn robe of self-accusation’. Rumi.
There is more liberation into God’s love
in celebrating beauty,
in acknowledging the mysteries of creation,
the wonder of the workings of our physical bodies,
the intricacies of our brains,
the soul-school of our feelings, high or low,
than in examining one’s life for sins and defects
and lamenting losses and remembering failures.
The shadow will show itself
in ways open to healing
when we expand to the light -
the unlimited goodness
of God’s Grace.
The flower of God’s qualities,
and the heart of the gospel - compassion and love.
‘The Lord is compassion and love.
The Lord heals every one of your ills.
The Lord crowns you with love and compassion’. Ps:102.
