Zeal of ‘The Zahir’

the-zahir

zzLove is a disease no one wants to get rid of. Those who catch it never try to get better, and those who suffer do not wish to be cured.

zzThe energy of hatred won’t get you anywhere; but the energy of forgiveness, which reveals itself through love, will transform your life in a positive way.

zzI believe in signs….what we need to learn is always there before us, we just have to look around us with respect & attention to discover where God is leading us and which step we should take.

zzWhen we are on the right path, we follow the signs, and if we occasionally stumble, the Divine comes to our aid, preventing us from making mistakes

zzIt is always important to know when something has reached its end. Closing circles, shutting doors, finishing chapters, it doesn’t matter what we call it; what matters is to leave in the past those moments in life that are over.

zzI must try to enjoy all the graces that God has given me today. Grace cannot be hoarded. There are no banks where it can be deposited to be used when I feel more at peace with myself.  If I do not make full use of these blessings, I will lose them forever.

zzNo one is alone in their troubles; there is always someone else thinking, rejoicing, or suffering in the same way and that gives us the strength to confront the challenge before us.

zzI don’t regret the difficulties I experienced; I think they help helped me to become the person I am today.  

zzIf there is suffering, then it’s best to accept it, because it won’t go away just because you pretend it’s not there. If there is joy, then it’s best to accept that too, even though you’re afraid it might end one day.

zzFreedom is not the absence of commitments, but the ability to choose—and commit myself to—what is best for me.

zzAll energy and all knowledge come from the same unknown source, which we usually call God. What I’ve tried to do in my life, ever since I first started out on what I believe to be my path, is to honor that energy, to connect up with it every day, to allow myself to be guided by the signs, to learn by doing and not by thinking about doing. 

zzAs Einstein said, God does not play dice with the universe; everything is interconnected and has a meaning.

zzAge only slows down those who never had the courage to walk at their own pace.

zzIf someone is capable of loving his partner without restrictions, unconditionally, then he is manifesting the love of God.
