Need, after all, is an attribute of the existent;
but he who dives into the sea of nothingness needs no more.
His poverty is complete.
You are nothing
when you wed the One;
but you are everything
when you become nothing."
~ Fakhruddin 'Iraqi
from Divine Flashes
That’s right, and between the great criminals, who think only of doing harm,
and the great saints, who devote themselves to the good of humanity, are the bulk of human beings.
Not knowing how to put their mind, heart and will at the service of a project with any consistency,
they keep swinging between the paths of good and evil and do not achieve a great deal.
For good as well as evil, it is necessary to give the same direction to one’s thoughts, feelings and actions, which is difficult
– and people are so lazy in this regard!
We are sometimes surprised that great criminals can become great saints.
No, there is nothing surprising about it.
An event that takes place in their life, or someone they meet, creates a tremendous upheaval in them,
and to the degree that they have achieved the most difficult part of the work
– the unity of their mind, heart and will –
they are then able to surpass themselves in goodness as they had in evil. "
Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov

"Get so fixated on what you want,
that you drown out any vibration or reverberation
that has anything to do with what you do not want."
