"A grateful thought towards heaven, is of itself a prayer."
~Doris Lessing

Many people spend a lot of effort seeking spiritual experiences, as a distraction or elevation from their human condition--which is, sometimes, messy and/or uncomfortable. The wise say that is backwards--that what we are is spirit, having a human experience--which is sometimes messy or uncomfortable, and so what. But if we are spirit (check it out), then the whole world is a House of God, and wherever we are is our chapel, because we live in what we radiate. But it certainly doesn't hurt to spend a few quiet moments in reflection.
Coming soon, beauty and inspiration from Rumi, Jesus, more.

"Amen, amen, I say to you, that you shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice; and you shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy."  "And you therefore have sorrow now; but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice and your joy no one shall take from you." [John, Chapter 17, Verses 20 and 22]

"We will meet again." [Sufi saying.]

Sanity Island is not about being "good" or "better" or about self-improvement at all--that's certain ideals of theology. It's about intelligence, which could be defined as "doing what's to my advantage"--knowing that if it's harmful to anyone else, it's not to my advantage.

Rumi, everyone's favorite poet... sent in by John B. (meet him in the Coffee Shop).

Is there a more magnificent chapel than the night sky? Away from city lights, can anyone really look up and be aware of the beauty splashed there and feel their troubles have any significance at all?  Or how about our life-giving sun?
