That Which Is

“Bathed in Light” | Anthony Satori

“My mind withdrew its thoughts from experience, extracting itself from the contradictory throng of sensuous images, that it might find out what that light was wherein it was bathed. And thus, with the flash of one hurried glance, it attained to the vision of That Which Is.”

— Saint Augustine

Inner Calm

“Peaceful Cottage” | Anthony Satori

“To meditate means to go home to yourself. Then you know how to take care of the things that are happening inside you, and you know how to take care of the things that happen around you.”

— Thich Nhat Hanh

“Benevolent Light”  |  Anthony Satori

Every day, every moment, the universe is patiently waiting for us to pull softly on the strings of the blinds and let its light flow in.  Take a deep breath, calm your thoughts, and center your spirit.  And then mindfully take action toward something good.  Take action toward love, hope, kindness.  Take action toward health, joy, deeper understanding.  Even the smallest such act, done with a genuine heart, is an invitation for the universe to immerse us in its benevolent light.

“Invincible Summer”  |  Anthony Satori

“My dear, in the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love.
In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile.
In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm.
I realized, through it all, that…
In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.
And that makes me happy.
For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me,
within me, there’s something stronger —
something better, pushing right back.”

— Albert Camus

“Four Flowers”  |  Anthony Satori

“When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment.  I want to give that world to someone else.  Most people… rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower.  I want them to see it.”

— Georgia O’Keeffe

“Grace”  |  Anthony Satori

“Infuse your life with action.  Don’t wait for it to happen.  Make it happen.  Make your own future.  Make your own hope.  Make your own love.  And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right here.”

— Bradley Whitford

“Sincere Longing”  |  Anthony Satori

“Only the wise know just where predestination ends and free will begins.  Meanwhile, you must keep on doing your best, according to your own clearest understanding.  You must long for freedom as the drowning man longs for air.  Without sincere longing, you will never find God.”

— Paramahansa Yogananda
