Jan. 1-8th: “For the heart is the root of one’s being and exists in every plane of one’s being. In each plane the heart is the center, and the health, the power, beauty, wisdom and success of life all depend upon the condition of the heart.” (Tasawwuf by POM Hazrat Inayat Khan). Let us meditate on the power, beauty, health, wisdom and success flowing from our hearts.
Jan. 9-15th: “He who blames others has a long way to go on his or her journey. The one who blames himself/herself is halfway there. The one who blames no one has arrived.” (Chinese Proverb). Let us meditate on releasing all blame and arriving at the door of the open heart.
Jan. 16-22nd: “Every wonderful sight will vanish, every sweet word will fade, but do not be disheartened, the source they come from is eternal, growing, branching out, giving new life and new joy. Why do you weep? The source is within you, and this whole world is springing up from it.” (Maulana Jelaluddin Rumi) Let us meditate on the Source of All.
Jan. 23-29th: “Not one of you is a believer until one loves for their sister and brother what one loves for themselves.” (Fourth Hadith of an-Nawawi 13). Let us meditate on the greatness and expansion of love pouring from our hearts to all beings.
