Life Worth Living

Dive deeply into the miracle of life and let the tips of your wings be burnt by the flame, let your feet be lacerated by the thorns, let your heart be stirred by human emotion, and let your soul be lifted beyond the earth.

– Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan, Call of the Dervish

On What Is My Life Built?

Today’s Advent reading is from the 7th chapter of the Gospel of Matthew

Anyone who hears my words and puts them into practice is like the wise one who built a house on rock.
-Matthew 7:24

We have recently witnessed the ravages of Sandy, and our hearts go out to those who are still without shelter as winter is upon us. We are reminded of the precarious nature of life. And truly, there is no way to insulate and protect ourselves from tragedy whether we build our homes on sand or rock. So how do we build our inner lives? And how do we reach out to others when tragedy strikes? On what are our lives built?
