Open your mind to the wisdom of your heart

Stop. Do something new! A year ago, almost exactly, I wrote these questions here: Will we choose a way of oneness and relationship? Of heaven and earth? Of form and spirit? Will we dare to live meaningful, true lives? Are we willing to see ourselves—as neither greater...

Pope Francis and “A Course of Love”

This Course requires no thought and no effort. There is no prolonged study and the few specific exercises are not required. This Course has succeeded in ways you do not yet understand and have no need to understand. These words have entered your heart and sealed the...
