Quickie: Iyanla, Fixes Lives

by P. Braithwaite

“Think love. See love. Invoke love from the attic of life. You are in good company, you know. You have lots of support and assistance. This is where Christ loves. This is where Buddha loves. This is where Krishna, Muktananda, and the archangels Michael, Ariel, Uriel, and Gabriel live. This is where the wise old grandmother’s live, the medicine women and the healers. This is where White Eagle lives. This is the realm of Spirit. This is the highest faculty of your mind. When you make it though all of your human stuff to this level of consciousness, you are keeping company with the masters. You, my dear, have become the light of the world — the loving light. I beseech you to do everything in your power to let your light shine.”

-Iyanla Vanzant

Quickie: A Movie Ticket in My Bible

by P. Braithwaite

After speaking to one of my oldest friends, I pulled out my well-worn copy of The New American Bible For Catholics to look for the verse she mentioned: Psalm 126.

Oddly enough, I found a movie ticket from 2011 was tucked into my bible (2011 is quite possibly the last time I opened my Bible. Don’t judge me). When I opened, it I discovered Psalm of Thanksgiving. It has been rocking my life. I think I might read it every morning.

Those of you who know me understand that Jesus and I have an open relationship. Though I don’t think we’ll ever be exclusive again, I understand that The Bible has some deep wisdom. So Today’s Quickie is from The Bible. If I can quote Rumi or Buddha…I can quote The Bible too.

Shit, I’d quote Trinidad James if he said anything worth repeating.

Anyway, I hope this passage resonates with you: click here if you can’t read the image.
