Floatsy before you and others get too carried away with the quotes .....

a reminder of the Copy- Paste rule :


Copy-Paste: One or two lines at most of relevant text of material from other sites or sources and a link to the relevant text for further reading is allowed on the condition that the author is credited and the source linked is not a commercial site (promoting or selling goods or services). Quotes of religious texts such as the Bible or Quran must also be no more than one or two lines. Posts that quote or copy-paste more than one or two short lines of text will be removed or edited. Repeatedly breaching this rule will lead to warnings and possible Disciplinary Action.

One or two lines of different quotes is OK, Adrienne, or not?

yes it is OK .... but you cannot quote a whole paragraph by one person, which you did, right after I posted the rule on one or two lines.

however good, will be a barrier between you and the inmost Truth."

Yes, I love this!

To listen, to truly listen, whether it's to another person, to nature, or to ourselves, and not merely to give an impression of listening (as we might when we're interacting with another, for example) is for me truly an act of love

He will show himself when it suits Him to do so, and He can
also remain hidden if that is His wish.

Someone asked on another thread recently why God goes into hiding, and I thought to myself, 'well if he does, he hides in plain sight'

“Meditation speaks. It speaks in silence. It reveals. It reveals to the aspirant that matter and spirit are one, quantity and quality are one, the immanent and the transcendent are one.”
