Wishing you all a very merry and blessed Christmas! May your time be filled with love and light, and may we deepen our remembrance and connection to the beloved souls of Jesus and Mary, may they be blessed.
The Jesus of your spirit is within you:
ask his aid, for he is a good helper.
Don’t seek from your Jesus the comforts of the body.
Don’t ask from your Moses the wish of a Pharaoh.
Don’t burden your heart with thoughts
of livelihood; livelihood will not fail.
Be constant in attendance at the Divine court.
[Mathnawi II, 450-453, Jewels of Remembrance, tr. Kabir and Camille Helminski]
