      September 15, 2017 Weekly Theme for Contemplation: Ascent Through Love

      Pure divine love is not merely the blossom of a human heart,
      but has its roots in eternity. — H. P. BLAVATSKY

      Love is reckless in giving away, oblivious as
      to what it gets in return. — M. K. GANDHI

      September 10, 2017 Theme for Contemplation: The Language of the Future

      The ‘Higher Ego’, as part of the essence of the UNIVERSAL MIND, is
      unconditionally omniscient on its own plane, and only potentially so in our
      terrestrial sphere, as it has to act solely through its ‘alter ego’, the Personal Self.
      — H. P. BLAVATSKY

      Life becomes sacred because all its acts and events
      are looked upon as sacraments. — B. P. WADIA

      September 18, 2017 Theme for Contemplation: Ascent Through Love

      Love is not love
      Which alters when it alteration finds,
      Or bends with the remover to remove:
      O, no! It is an ever-fixèd mark,
      That looks on tempests and is never shaken.
      — WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

      Like the Tina Turner song we could ask in regards to the spiritual path, “What’s Love Got To Do With It?”.

        It has everything to do with it. If the spiritual quest is the most challenging thing a human being can do then how could you climb to those heights without love. What we fall in love with is what we accomplish the most. Eros, Divine Love.

          Right on Alex. I could not agree more. Ralph Waldo Emerson used said nothing great ever happened without enthusiasm. For me enthusiasm is a form of love.

      September 21, 2017 Weekly Theme for Contemplation: Ascent Through Love

      If towards the Lord you take
      A single step, then with much more
      Than a mother’s love He takes
      Nine steps towards you to accept you.
      Such is the Guru’s Grace.
      — MURUGANAR

      Thou hast taught me to see in all men my friends,
      My guardians, my kindred.
      — TUKARAM

      No occupation either, but something given
      And taken, in a lifetime’s death in love,
      Ardour and selflessness and self-surrender.
      — T. S. ELIOT
