Hold It All

Seven Aphorisms by Sri Anandamayi Ma/Standing for Love by Nima Sheth-Miller

  1. As the intention, so the reward.
  2. One cannot be sure of the next breath.
  3. Take an about-turn (from looking outward to looking within).
  4. With God’s name on your lips, engage in your work in the world.
  5. The suffering of life is a blessing in disguise.
  6. Whatever happens is equally welcome.
  7. As you play, so you hear.

–Sri Anandamayi Ma

Sri Anadamayi Ma

I love you. You are a miracle in progress. It is always the beginning. I am the US, the WE, the collective and I stand for love, for conviction in the path that leads to it, for hope in all humanity taught by Mother Nature herself who blesses us with a new sunrise each day, a chance to learn from our past and find our paths. Humanity is God, the soul that resides within us all. You are God. You are God, my deepest conviction. I believe there is another level behind what we believe to be “selfish” or “greedy”. All deserve forgiveness. They, us, the same, I. Heaven, perhaps is here, right here on Earth, admist the chaos, for this is how we’ll find each other and when we look deep enough we’ll see reflections of ourselves. We will have found the path of love, of self, when we become dream figures in the waking life of another.

— Nima Sheth

An Evening with Danielle Mackey

We invite you to join us in welcoming Danielle Mackey back to St. Louis!

An alum of the Casa de la Solidaridad program and Saint Louis University (2008), Danielle has worked in El Salvador with the Share Foundation, the Colegio  Maya, and, currently as a freelance journalist. She is  beginning a major project, “Narratives and the Power of the Organized Transnational Majority.”

Our friends at Sophia House–Maria, Katie, and Annie– are happy to host a potluck dinner and discussion with Danielle on Tuesday 3 July, beginning at 7 p.m.  Katie will make delicious vegan lasagna; the rest of us can contribute what we are able. Sophia House is located at 4547 Gibson Avenue in Forest Park Southeast (63110).

Danielle will begin sharing about her living  and working in El Salvador at 7:45.  She would love to hear people’s own joys and struggles from our experiences, too.

If you have questions, write me back!

Namaste forever,
