Being steady with a community in classes-meetings-adventures, every month for 5 years and 8 years, creates sincerity…
Sincerity…a popular word…a powerful thought…a pure feeling.
Jelaludin Rumi is one of the most sincere poets. And one of his most sincere poems is the purpose of our E-Vichara

E-Vichara (July 22, 2019) — — Undressing

  • Learn the alchemy true human beings know — introspection is the magic by which we come to know the nature of our body-mind-Spirit by which we come to know the nature of all bodies-minds-Spirit
  • The moment you accept what troubles you’ve been given, the door will open — our Creator is Omnipresent, the implication being She is always looking at us, the implication being She is always looking after us, the implication being problems have a purpose
  • Welcome difficulty as a familiar comrade — there is no such thing as ‘tough times’, time is tough and knowing this we embrace difficulties
  • Joke with torment brought by the friend — failure is coming and going, success is coming and going, enjoy all the flavours of coming and going
  • Sorrows are the rags of old clothes and jackets that serve to cover, then are taken off — misunderstanding challenges we grow in bitterness, in closeness, understanding challenges we grow in betterness, in openness
  • That undressing, and the naked body underneath, is the sweetness that comes after grief — living is dismantling the ego, Life is being the Self

Inspire-Love-Be,
