" Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself. Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For Love is sufficient unto Love..."

The Extent of His Grace
No matter how great your Faith and trust in the Divine Grace, no matter how great your capacity to see it at work in all circumstances, at every moment, at every point in life, you will never succeed in understanding the marvellous immensity of Its Action, and the precision, the exactitude with which this Action is accomplished: you will never be able to grasp to what extent His Grace does everything, is behind everything, organises everything, conducts everything, so that the march forward to the Divine Realization may be as swift, as complete, as total and harmonious as possible, considering the circumstances of the world. As soon as you are in contact with Him, there is not a second in time, not a point in space, which does not show you dazzlingly this perpetual work of Grace, and His constant intervention. And once you have seen this, you feel you are never equal to it, for you should never forget it, never have any fears, anguish, regrets, recoils...or even suffering. If one were in Union with this Grace, if one saw Him everywhere, one would begin living a life of exultation, of all-power, of Infinite happiness. And that would be the Best possible Collaboration in The Divine Work.
" O my Lord, if I worship Thee from fear of hell, burn me in hell and if I worship Thee in hope of paradise, exclude me thence, But I worship Thee for Thine own sake, Then withhold not from me Thine eternal beauty! ” The Greatest Sufi Woman Saint - Rabia-al-Adawiyah
I am a doting daughter, a protective sister, a loyal friend, a sensitive, loving soul with an insatiable passion and zest for Life- The Divine’s Greatest Gift to me.
I am on my way faltering and stumbling to reach towards My Beloved and discover His Love and Glory every single moment of this blessed living.
I believe there are innumerable Ways which lead to Him, and I bow my head in Love and Respect for each of them for I seek the Essence and not its Form.
I desire to grow abundantly in soul and spirit, yearn to be a good human being and spread Love on my Path to all those I meet.
This blog is my humble attempt to decipher The Celestial Being and feel His Love and Presence in all His astounding Creations.
