Detachment

We are all vulnerable and incomplete –
and in need of God’s love, grace and mercy.

All good things are a gift of grace.

Grace is the breath of Love.

Let yourself be loved;
let yourself be acted upon by God.

The soul loves simplicity and chastity.

Without purity, we cannot “see” God.

The loud drum beat of fear and anxiety
can be quieted by contemplation.

Contentment is the daughter of simplification.

Detachment makes one powerful.

To keep silence is to keep listening.

Encourage playfulness.

My awareness of God’s mysterious presence
within me
helps me become more aware
of the same presence within others.

Divine love is not fickle.
It has only one desire:
total self-giving.

To love others as Jesus loves them
is an extremely difficult,
if not impossible,
task, yet it must be
our primary goal as Christians.

The key to attaining happiness
is to give it away.
But we love hanging onto
what we’ve got.

Happiness grows only in the garden
of unconditional love.

You can give
without loving.
But you can’t love
without giving.
