home

A Quote by Daniel G. Aerakis on home, happiness, guest, heart, joy, life, purification, celebration, repentence, and cleansing

When you are about to have a celebration in your home or to receive an official person, you clean your home with great care and you decorate it.  You especially fix up the living room, where the guest will sit.  So how is it possible to receive in the home of your soul the great Visitor, our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, with out first cleaning the living room of your soul with the broom of sincere repentance, without washing it with tears of contrition?  Adorn your soul, then approach the Holy Cup to receive and welcome the Lord.

A Quote by Micheal Teal on love, soul, spirit, home, guidance, joy, divinity, light, purpose, and humanity

Love is a home for your soul, a spiritual blueprint which allows us to build a life guided purpose and divine light. Love washes over us like raindrops from heaven bathing us in meaning, purpose and joy. Seek the company of souls adrift and let your love wash over them as doing so will awaken humanity to unimaginable bliss. Love is the karmic whole that enables us to live life in a more conscious way. Love!

A Quote by St. Tikhon of Zadonsk on god, spirituality, home, christianity, enlightenment, joy, love, peace, and freedom

Our Father awaits us with great zeal and desire, and with love He will see us returning from afar, and He will look upon us with compassionate eyes, and we shall be dear to Him, and He will fall on our neck running and embrace us and kiss us with His Holy Love.  He will not reproach us, and He will no longer remember our sins and iniquities, and all the holy angles and all His elect will begin to rejoice over us.

A Quote by Cecelia Ahern on houses, home, memories, new beginnings, and healing

This house isn't mine anymore, but the memories are; the memories can't be sold.  The building that housed my once-upon-a-time dreams stands for someone else now, as it did for the people before us, and I feel happy to let it go.  Happy that I can begin again, anew, though bearing the scars of before.  They represent wounds that have healed.

A Quote by David Spangler on community organizer, community, honor, heros, understanding, planet, environment, home, and earth

The earth community, the Life Community, is not the property of any one religion or group or part of the world; it is the Commons that embraces us all, our planetary home.  And it needs us as never before.  It calls to us to become, not heroes but community builders, builders of home, gatherers and embracers, bearers of hospitality, keepers of the shared space that nurtures us all.  It calls us not to go forth and come back laden with honors but to honor where we are, who we are, and from that place to reach out to connect to and honor each other in the community of life.

A Quote by Wendell Berry on values, waste, usefulness, nothing, exist, country, natural resources, metamorphosis, bounty, land, junk, garbage, silt, poison, economy, farm, home, loyalty, devotion, humans, unborn, disinvestment, unemployed, homeland, sour

But when nothing is valued for what it is, everything is destined to be wasted. Once the values of things refer only to their future usefulness, then an infinite withdrawal of value from the living present has begun. Nothing (and nobody) can then exist that is not theoretically replaceable by something (or somebody) more valuable. The country that we (or some of us) had thought to make our home becomes instead 'a nation rich in natural resources'; the good bounty of the land begins its mechanical metamorphosis into junk, garbage, silt, poison, and other forms of 'waste.' "The inevitable result of such an economy is that no farm or any other usable property can safely be regarded by anyone as a home, no home is ultimately worthy of our loyalty, nothing is ultimately worth doing, and no place or task or person is worth a lifetime's devotion. 'Waste,' in such an economy, must eventually include several categories of humans--the unborn, the old, 'disinvested' farmers, the unemployed, the 'unemployable.' Indeed, once our homeland, our source, is regarded as a resource, we are all sliding downward toward the ashheap or the dump.

A Quote by Edward Paul Abbey on cities, country, belonging, and home

A city man is a home anywhere, for all big cities are much alike. But a country man has a place where he belongs, where he always returns, and where, when the time comes, he is willing to die.

Edward Abbey (1927 - 1989)

A Quote by Starhawk on home, free, community, and circle

We are all longing to go home to some place we have never been - a place half-remembered and half-envisioned we can only catch glimpses of from time to time. Community. Somewhere, there are people to whom we can speak with passion without having the words catch in our throats. Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate with us whenever we come into our own power. Community means strength that joins our strength to do the work that needs to be done. Arms to hold us when we falter. A circle of healing. A circle of friends. Someplace where we can be free.
