The Unknown Path

One can't venture oneself into the magic of an unknown path by following the already known directions. Cause to see things with new eyes one needs to drop all perceptions and notions of sight. truth,  OdiliaCarmen

Great Spirit Prayer

" Oh, Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the wind, Whose breath gives life to all the world. Hear me; I need your strength and wisdom. Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset. Make my hands respect the things you have made and my ears sharp to hear your voice Make me wise so that I may understand the things you have taught my people. Help me to remain calm and strong in the face of all that comes towards me. Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf & rock. Help me seek pure thoughts & act with the intention of helping others. Help me find compassion without empathy overwhelming me. I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother, but to fight my greatest enemy - Myself. Make me always ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes. So when life fades, as the fading sunset, my spirit may come to you without shame. " Native American Prayer truth,  OdiliaCarmen


In or out of a "love" relationship, one must confront the very same illusion. The belief that another can bring us wholeness, that is. And until that illusion is confronted, one can't truly experience love. truth,  OdiliaCarmen

The Song Of The Bird

"The disciples were full of questions about God.  Said the Master, “God is Unknown, the Unknowable. Every statement about Him, every answer to your questions, is a distortion of the Truth.”  The disciples were bewildered. “Then why do you speak about Him at all?”  “Why does the bird sing?” said the Master.  Not because he has a statement, but because he has a song.  The words of the Scholar are to be understood. The words of the Master are not to be understood. They are to be listened to as one listens to the wind in the trees and the sound of the river and the song of the bird. They will awaken something within the heart that is beyond all knowledge." from the book  "Song Of The Bird"  by  Anthony de Mello truth,  OdiliaCarmen

True Achievement

What you see isn't, though you've been led to believe so, what you want. What you see is that which inspires you to bring forth, from within, that which you want. You won't be truly happy with anything that you get unless you've created it yourself. truth,  OdiliaCarmen

Wakan Tanka Prayer

"Wakan Tanka, Great Mystery (Great Spirit), Teach me how to trust my heart, Teach me how to trust my mind, Teach me how to trust my intuition, Teach me how to trust my inner knowing, The senses of my body, The blessings of my spirit. Teach me to trust these things so that I may enter my Sacred Space and love beyond my fear and thus Walk in Balance with the passing of each glorious Sun." Native American Prayer truth,  OdiliaCarmen

"My" Love

Jealousy comes with the objectification of those we love. When one places the "my" in front of "love" one gets a sense of ownership over the beloved. And with the ownership of our beloved we take away our beloved's freedom as well. And that can never end up well since is the main and most important human right in our lives. The freedom to choose! Whatever we want to experience that is. truth,  OdiliaCarmen

Holiness In The Present Moment

"Buddha was once asked, “What makes a person holy?” He replied, “Every hour is divided into a cer-tain number of seconds and every second into a certain number of fractions. Anyone who is able to be totally present in each fraction of a second is holy.” The Japanese warrior was captured and thrown into prison. At night he could not sleep for he was convinced he would be tortured next morning. Then the words of his Master came to him: “Tomorrow is not real. The only reality is now.” So he came to the present — and fell asleep. The person over whom the Future has ‘lost its grip: How like the birds of the air and the lilies of the field. No anxieties for the morrow. Total presence in the now. Holiness!" from the book  "Song Of The Bird"  by  Anthony de Mello truth,  OdiliaCarmen
