unitarian, spiritual, chalice

the seekers

I tried to find Him on the Christian cross, but He was not there; I went to the Temple of the Hindus and to the old pagodas, but I could not find a trace of Him anywhere.

I searched on the mountains and in the valleys, but neither in the heights nor in the depths was I able to find Him. I went to the Caaba in Mecca, but He was not there either.

I questioned the scholars and philosophers, but He was beyond their understanding.

I then looked into my heart and it was there where He dwelled that I saw Him; He was nowhere else to be found.

    -Jelaluddin Rumi

I found this quote in the new enigma CD I got from the library, but I wanted to put it here so I can come back and meditate on it.
god i'm nuts, crazy, weird

well, this explains a lot.

I wish our scanner worked. If it worked, I could show you what showed up in the mail today for the former residents of the house.

Suffice it to say, the return address reads:

Church of Scientology
Flag Service Organization
PO Box 31751
Tampa, FL 33631-3751, U.S.A.

and there's a happy fun picture of L. Ron himself on the other side, with the following quote:

"'If at a breath I could wish the whole universe right as you too may have dreamed, it would be wonderful. But it takes a lot more than breaths or wishes to accomplish that and it requires that you also do your part in it if you and those dear to you are going to make it fully.' --LRH from LRH ED 348 INT of 13 March 1983"

This amuses me much more than it probably should.
