with us
Contemplation is not so much a matter of transcending mundane existence as it is becoming present to the realities of the human experience. — Mirabai Starr Read Feminine Incarnation: Weekly Summary

Conscious love is “love in the service of inner transformation”—or if you prefer, “inner transformation in the service of love.” — Cynthia Bourgeault Read Love in Service of Transformation
Love calls forth the reality of the beloved, and the act of loving calls forth our own most authentic and dynamic center. — Cynthia Bourgeault Read Laying Down Our Life

Love becomes a path of awakening—rousing us from unconscious patterns into living more fully in the present, in accord with who we really are. — John Welwood Read The Heart of the Universe
If you don’t choose daily and deliberately to practice loving kindness, it is unlikely that a year from now you will be any more loving. — Richard Rohr Read Conscious Love: Weekly Summary
True holiness and wholeness come when we allow God’s love and grace to unfold in the present moment and we respond to what is before us. — Richard Rohr Read A School of Love
As our hearts overflow, we find that love can naturally extend wider, until it encompasses caring for all things and connection to everything. — Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg Read Giving Ourselves
