Middle East Wisdom ~ And the fruit of the Spirit is: Love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law

 And the fruit of the Spirit is: Love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. ~ Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”

On life’s journey Faith is nourishment, Virtuous deeds are a shelter, Wisdom is the light by day and Right mindfulness is the protection by night. If a man lives a pure life nothing can destroy him; If he has conquered greed nothing can limit his freedom.

Wisdom is the light by day and 
Right mindfulness is the protection by night

Wisdom From The Middle East ~ A city broken down without walls, Is a man without restraint over his spirit!

Young’s Literal Translation
A city broken down without walls, Is a man without restraint over his spirit

For Those Who Mourn (our friend Lumin died yesterday)

Let me come in where you are weeping, friend, And let me take your hand. I, who have known a sorrow such as yours, Can understand.

Let me come in — I would be very still Beside you in your grief; I would not bid you cease your weeping, friend, Tears can bring relief.

Let me come in —

I would only breathe a prayer, And hold your hand, For I have known a sorrow such as yours,

And understand.’
