"Wherever you stand, be the soul of that place" - Rumi
Karis means "filled with grace and kindness".
We each have our place to stand in this world and by our presence make it more beautiful and whole.
Wherever you stand be karis.
“Give beauty back,
beauty, beauty, beauty back to God,
beauty’s Self and beauty’s Giver.”
–GERARD MANLEY HOPKINS
Inspired by the darsana icon, our ring embodies the spirit of darsana–beheld in God's love and beauty we reflect love and beauty to the world.
Receiving and giving is the flow of life.
We are loved and so we love.
Where there is ruin, there is hope for treasure.” –RUMI
This line from the ancient poet Rumi imparts the timeless truth that so often there is great treasure to be found buried beneath what looks broken and lost.
Sometimes we must have faith that the treasure is there until we have the strength to lay claim to it. Sometimes we need to dig for someone else. No matter—the treasure will wait for us.
There is treasure inside all of us—an inner spark of the Divine—waiting to be seen— waiting to be claimed.
“Wherever water flows, life flourishes; wherever tears fall, Divine mercy is shown.” –RUMI
It's been said our tears are so precious that God saves them in a bottle. Tears seem to flow when we're at our most alive and in touch with our humanity. Whether tears of joy, tears of sorrow, tears of laughter or tears of mercy - they are beautiful signposts of the heart; connecting us to ourselves and each other.
