OM, sweet spirit, OM
Spirit Heart, font of all Being, quench my thirst for Truth, succor my craving for unity, fill my cup with the elixir of Eternality. Whisk me gracefully across the threshold, where I utterly die to myself. Compassion reign sweet. Peace be me. Love be my only name! ~ Rev. Simeon Nartoomid
This website is dedicated to holding and expanding awareness of the Divine Presence on and in the earth. To accomplish this we endeavor to deepen individual and collective relationship with spirit heart. Our individual spirit heart is the subtle spiritual or etheric counterpart of our physical heart, and the latter forms a point of interface in the human experience with collective and universal spirit heart.
There are three basic spirit heart levels or domains in our human experience on earth: individual, collective and universal. All spirit hearts are at-one with each other. All human hearts are not. By facilitating an expanding and deepening connection with spirit heart on all levels starting with the individual -- human hearts will be able to move into greater resonance with their spirit hearts. As an increasing number of individuals accomplish this the collective and universal levels of spirit heart will be strengthened in the consciousness of our world.
It is from the spirit heart sanctuary that the "peace that passeth all understanding" flows. As we each learn to more fully access and experience this profound inner peace within our own spirit heart, and we join our efforts in this regard to those of others, we are doing the most powerful thing that we can to manifest world peace. All other outer peace activities must flow from this inner place of peace to be effective. In this way, we strive to BECOME our prayer for peace!
The following excerpts speak to our ideal, each in different ways. The importance of states of inner peace, kindness, generosity and love break across all cultural barriers.
The question of real, lasting world peace concerns human beings, so basic human feelings are also at its roots. Through inner peace, genuine world peace can be achieved. In this the importance of individual responsibility is quite clear; an atmosphere of peace must first be created within ourselves, then gradually expanded to include our families, our communities, and ultimately the whole planet ~ Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama
"The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes from within the souls of men when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells Wakan-Tanka [the Universal Spirit Heart - editor], and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us. This is the real peace, and the others are but reflections of this. The second peace is that which is made between two individuals, and the third is that which is made between two nations. But above all you should understand that there can never be peace between nations until there is first known that true peace which is within the souls of men." ~ Black Elk

"We are all connected to everyone and everything in the universe. Therefore, everything one does as an individual affects the whole. All thoughts, words, images, prayers, blessings, and deeds are listened to by all that is." ~Serge Kahili King
"It is non-violence only when we love those that hate us. I know how difficult it is to follow this grand law of love, but are not all great and good things difficult to do? Love of the hater is the most difficult of all. But by the grace of God even this most difficult thing becomes easy to accomplish if we want to." ~ Mohandas K. Gandhi
"You should be the change that you want to see in the world." ~ Mohandas K. Gandhi

"Love gives life within"
To facilitate this universal realization of inner peace and expansion of love [Christ Consciousness] within the souls of all beings is thus Spirit Heart Sanctuary's organized purpose and dedicated service to Spirit and humanity. To this end we explore various means; to provide some diversity, to honor all that has gone before us, to honor all that exists now, and to honor all that shall follow us. Everything you will encounter on our websites is related to this purpose.
This activity is not for the faint of heart. Spiritual exploration into new frontiers of consciousness takes enormous amounts of courage, dedication, persistence and inner fortitude. Thank you for endeavoring to embody these qualities as a human being on our beloved earth.
