Donna Goddard
“Somewhere along the way, there develops within the soul a yearning that can no longer be ignored, a craving for the great love affair. We feel it drawing ever closer. It is the greatest of them all. It cannot fail. It is all consuming. It is incomparable. It is the love affair with our own true nature and the source from which it comes. The desire is in all of us but, more often than not, it is ignored for other interests. We wrestle with each interest, trying to make it work, growing with each adventure until the light has grown bright enough for us to reach for it.”
Donna Goddard, Love's Longing

“Your acts of kindness are iridescent wings of divine love, which linger and continue to uplift others long after your sharing.”

Shannon L. Alder
“Sonnet I

If thee must say that I am not who I am,

That I am not real or true,

Then thou must say you are not as well,

For we either walk in fairytales and dance to our dreams,

Or we die trying to capture a miracle between the ordinary moments,

We rejoice in the gratitude for our needs met,

But we pray for the staircases and open doors to our desires,

We redefine our gratitude with another day,

Another dance of praise to Thee for undoing are mistakes of unneeded wants and needs we want, but not met.”
Shannon L. Alder

Have pure soul,

“The Body is Like Mary

The body is like Mary, and each of us has a Jesus inside.
Who is not in labour, holy labour? Every creature is.

See the value of true art, when the earth or a soul
is in the mood to create beauty;

for the witness might then for a moment know,
beyond any doubt, God is really there within,

so innocently drawing life from us with Her umbilical universe – infinite existence …

though also needing to be born. Yes, God also
needs to be born!

Birth from a hand’s loving touch. Birth from a song,
from a dance, breathing life into this world.

The body is like Mary, and each of us, each of us has a Christ within.”
Daniel Ladinsky, The Purity of Desire: 100 Poems of Rumi
