Setting Your Heart on Fire II

And here are the remaining invitations described in Setting Your Heart on Fire: Seven Invitations to Liberate Your Life, by Raphael Cushnir:

The Fifth Invitation: Live Like You're Dreaming

In the Fifth Invitation, love calls you to awaken
to the power of your unconscious.
This power leads you to new depths
of personal insight, and infuses your life
with possibility and wonder.

"In dreams and in love
there are no responsibilities."
- Janos Arany

"There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as if everything is."
- Albert Einstein

The Sixth Invitation: Love Like You're Dancing

In the Sixth Invitation, love calls you
to transform all your relationships into a dance
of self-discovery. When dancing together
in unison, through every step and stumble,
each partner reveals the other.

"Dance when you're broken open.
Dance if you've torn the bandage off.
Dance in the middle of the fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance when you're perfecty free."
- Rumi

"Love turns one person into two,
and two into one."
- Isaac Abarbanel

The Seventh Invitation: Widen Your World

In the Seventh Invitation, love calls you
to see the earth and its inhabitants as
one interdependent whole.
To serve and sustain that whole
means assessing the global impact
of all your actions.

"The One is none other than the All.
the All is none other than the One."
-Seng Ts'an
The Third Zen Patriarch

"One day I was sitting quiet...
it came to me:
that feeling of being part of everything,
not separate at all.
I knew that if I cut a tree,
my arm would bleed."
- Alice Walker
