Dear Friends, Drodzy Przyjaciele, Cari Amici,

I want to share with you this beautiful quote from Rumi that has become a part of my meditation, prayer and healing:

 

“Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing, there is a field.  I’ll meet you there.”

                                                                                                                                           ~Rumi

When I am feeling judged by another, or when I am judging, when I feel at odds with someone or a situation, when I feel that desperate feeling to be affirmed that I am right and the other is wrong, this quote so often comes back to me, almost like a prayer and it offers me the choice to let go of my opinions and my ideas that pit me against the other, or the situation.

In moments when I am totally peaceful and without any resistance or conflict, and I consider these words…I find that I am seeking that field, that place where there is no conflict, no judgement, no rightness and wrongness, but just complete acceptance of what is, here and now.

It is a spectacular field, and it is a gentle place to be.  There are no enemies, no issues, no arguments, no wars. My heart is learning to make her home in that field. I’ll meet you there!

With Love and Peace, Z Miłości i Pokoju, Con Amore e Pace,

I Remain,

Gabriel Orion Marie

* For those of you who may not know, I have published a series of three books that tell the story of my recovery and healing from profoundly intense physical, sexual and spiritual abuse. These books have dozens of paintings that I did during my process and those paintings are a core form of communication I used in my Healing. These books are available on Amazon. I hope you will read them and pass them on to others!  This White House (Book One), Going Sane (Book Two) and A Spectacular Dawn (Book Three)
