“The universe is not outside of you.

Look inside yourself;

everything that you want,

you already are.”

~ Rumi








Nuri Bey era un reflexivo y respetado albanés que había desposado a una mujer mucho más joven que él.
Un atardecer, habiendo retornado a su hogar más temprano que de costumbre, un fiel sirviente se le acercó y dijo:
“Vuestra esposa, nuestra señora, está actuando sospechosamente.
“Se encuentra en sus aposentos con un enorme cofre, el cual perteneció a vuestra abuela, lo suficientemente grande como para contener un hombre.
“Sólo debería contener unos pocos bordados antiguos.
“Creo que ahora quizá haya mucho más en él.
“Ella no permite que yo, vuestro más antiguo criado, mire dentro.”
Nuri fue a la habitación de su mujer, y la encontró sentada desconsoladamente junto a la enorme caja de madera.
“¿Me mostrarás qué hay en el cofre?”, preguntó.
“¿Debido a la sospecha de un sirviente, o porque no confías en mí?”
“¿No sería más fácil abrirlo, sin pensar en los matices?” preguntó Nuri.
“No creo que sea posible.”
“¿Está cerrado?”
“¿Dónde está la llave?”
Ella la mostró. “Despide al sirviente y te la daré.”
El sirviente fue despedido. La mujer entregó la llave y se retiró, obviamente perturbada.
Nuri Bey pensó un largo rato. Luego llamó a cuatro jardineros de su finca. Juntos transportaron por la noche el cofre cerrado hacia un distante lugar de la hacienda, y lo enterraron.
El asunto jamás volvió a ser mencionado.

El viejo cofre de Nuri Bey

The leader of the gnostics, Ali ibn Abi Talib, said,

Your cure is within you, but you do not know,
your illness is from you, but you do not see.
You are the “Clarifying Book”
through whose letters becomes manifest the hidden.
You suppose that you’re a small body
but the greatest world unfolds within you.
You would not need what is outside yourself
if you would reflect upon self, but you do not reflect.

Dear Amen Clinics Patient,
As we navigate the uncertainty created by COVID-19, we continue to be focused on the well-being of our employees and patients while also doing our part in contributing to the well-being of our wider community. Please see the following update on our plans for operations of our Amen Clinics across the country.

Currently, we are open. We plan to continue to be available for our patients. If we are mandated by governmental action to close our facility, we have a plan in place to still be available to you via phone and video. We are here for you. That said, with consideration of the guidance given by governmental authorities as well as health professionals, Amen Clinics is reducing our on-site personnel beginning on Monday, March 16th. We are moving as many patients as possible to telephone or video appointments, leaving our clinics open for our scanning appointments and in-person doctor appointments as needed. Our goal is to limit the traffic in the Clinics, keeping our staff and patients as safe as possible.

We are continuing our screening and safety practices in the Clinics. If you come for an appointment, we will ask you to wash your hands before and after every encounter, and we will support social distancing of at least 6 feet for all interactions except the scan. We will also be taking temperatures of all guests and asking anyone with a fever to leave immediately. We will be asking about recent travel and symptoms and may ask you to wear a mask based on your answers.

We understand this is a stressful and anxious time for everyone, and we want to be here for you now more than ever.

Getting through difficult times reminds us of our collective strength, and to be thankful for what truly matters. We hope that you and your loved ones stay healthy.

Busca da Felicidade…
A felicidade deveria ser fácil..

O problema é a cabeça do homem que filtra, protege, censura e finalmente faz o julgamento final da felicidade completa.

A mudança de boas experiências pode ser facilmente bloqueada pelas histórias interiores negativas que contamos a nós mesmos…

essas histórias tomam conta de nós como uma ideologia política..

precisamos investir na nossa vida mental, pois ela pode mudar e nos oferecer mais saúde e felicidade..

a felicidade pode ser aprendida…

uma vida cheia de vários pequenos momentos felizes..

Pode ser dificil demais mudar todos os habitos imediatamente,

mas não tão difícil tirar do peito coisas guardadas há longo tempo;

dificil demais tornar-se completamente otimista de uma só vez,

mas não tão dificil aprender que os problemas não durarão para sempre…

É o relacionamento com a vida em si que lhe traz vida…

Então por que não preencher a vida com prazeres agradáveis?

(Robert Ornstein)

Love’s creative power does not stop at the externalization and maintenance of the cosmos.

Although the jewels of the Hidden Treasure have been thrown out into the open, most creatures do not recognize them for what they are, nor do they understand that their own loves and desires externalize God’s love.

Their love is simply God’s own love reflected in the creatures. It follows that, as Ibn Arabi puts it, “None loves God but God,”11

and “There is no lover and no beloved but God.”12

Lovers grasp this when they reach the point of seeing God in everything that exists.

How to Help Prevent Contracting the coronavirus – it’s a good idea to know the basics of preventive measures you can take. Here are 3 strategies that can shore up your immune system to help you fight off the virus in case you are exposed to it.

1. Lower your stress.

Freaking out about a potential pandemic raises stress levels, which actually hurts your immune system and makes you more vulnerable to infections. Techniques to soothe stress include laughter, diaphragmatic breathing, prayer or meditation, listening to calming music, warming your hands with your mind, hypnosis and guided imagery, and flooding your 5 senses with positivity.

2. Eat foods that boost the immune system.

Foods that are natural immunity boosters include onions, mushrooms (shiitake, white button, portabella), garlic, vitamin C-rich foods (oranges, berries, peppers, dark leafy green vegetables), vitamin D-rich foods (fatty fish, eggs, tuna), zinc-rich foods (oysters, beef, lamb, spinach, asparagus, sesame and pumpkin seeds), and selenium-rich foods (Brazil nuts, seeds, grass-fed meats).

3. Take nutraceuticals that boost immunity and stave off infections.

In general, everyone should start taking a multivitamin, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin D whether you are healthy or not. Only about 25% of the U.S. population has healthy levels of vitamin D. Get yours checked and optimize your levels if necessary.
