Less Things More Life

Everyday we get more and more into slavery by buying things more or less "valuable" that are neither of real use nor a necessity to our happiness. We are lead to believe that this is how it is supposed to be. That we shall follow the trends so we can be acknowledged. That our value consists of gold weight and money worth of the things we own. Thoreau  pointed well that "the price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it". Cause ultimately we don`t pay with money but with the amount of time we worked for that money. Which is basically our life. Shall we remember then? Every moment we feel an urgency to spend ... for whatever? That less = more. Thus, less things, more life. truth,  OdiliaCarmen

Prerequisites For Prayer

"Maulana Rumi has given us a beautiful illustration of a loving prayer that a simple and unsophisticated shepherd boy was muttering in his own humble way as Prophet Moses passed by him. He was saying: O God! where art Thou? I would like to serve Thee. I would knit for Thee woolen garments and comb Thy hair. I would like to serve Thee with milk, curd, cheese and clarified butter, tend Thee in Thine illness, kiss Thy hands and massage Thy feet. I would like to make a sacrifice of all my sheep and goats for Thy sake. These words of the shepherd boy sounded as heresy to the Prophet, who in a rage began to reprimand the boy saying: "Shut up your mouth, O infidel. Why are you talking like a fool? Withdraw your insolent words or else God will curse us with hell-fires for your blasphemy. God is not a human being and He does not stand in need of any of the things that you offer Him. He is a spirit, without any hands and feet, and you have insulte
