CINTAMANI OR CHINTAMANI
The treasury: a wish-fulfilling jewel said by some to be the equivalent of the philosopher's stone in Western alchemy.

A maṇi-jewel; magical jewel or stone, which manifests whatever one wishes for (Skt. maṇi, cintā-maṇi, cintāmaṇi-ratna). According to one's desires, treasures, clothing and food can be manifested, while sickness and suffering can be removed, water can be purified, etc. It is a metaphor for the teachings and virtues of the Buddha, Krishna, The Christ-in-man.

According to a number of occult writings, the Stone is kept in the underground city of Shambhala and fragments of it are to be lent out to humanity to assist them in the time of great disasters and wars.

 A man(i) stone (the heart), now with the Om Mani Padme Hum mantra inscribed,  transfigures to the Fiery Heart by the chanting and prayerful psalms, decreeing the lightness and alignment of being,
H OM E.

OM sweet OM

THE SONG OF THE REED (part one)
[Song of Being Separated From The Beloved]
Mathnawi I
~Rumi

Listen to the story told by the reed,
of being separated.

"Since I was cut from the reed bed,
I have made this crying sound.

Anyone apart from someone he loves
understands what I say.

Anyone pulled from a source
longs to go back.

At any gathering I am there,
mingling in the laughing and grieving,

a friend to each, but few
will hear the secrets hidden
within the notes. No ears for that.

Body flowing out of spirit,
spirit up from body: no concealing
that mixing. But it's not given us
to see the soul. The reed flute
is fire, not wind. Be that empty."

Hear the love fire tangled
in the reed notes, as bewilderment

melts into wine. The reed is a friend

to all who want the fabric torn
and drawn away. The reed is hurt

and salve combining. Intimacy
and longing for intimacy, one
song. A disastrous surrender
and a fine love, together. The one
who secretly hears this is senseless.

A tongue has one customer, the ear.
A sugarcane flute has such effect

because it was able to make sugar
in the reedbed. The sound it makes

is for everyone. Days full of wanting,
let them go by without worrying

that they do. Stay where you are
inside such a pure, hollow note.

Every thirst gets satisfied except
that of these fish, the mystics,

who swim a vast ocean of grace
still somehow longing for it!

No one lives in that without
being nourished every day.

But if someone doesn't want to hear
the song of the reed flute,

it's best to cut conversation
short, say good-bye, and leave.

by Jalalu'ddin Rumi, excerpted from Coleman Barks' translation in The Essential Rumi

THE BREAD OF LIFE, THE HOLY COMMUNION
“Preparing food is not just about yourself and others. It is about Everything!”
~ Shunryu Suzuki

'Give us this day, our daily bread.'
Mathew 6:11 [excerpt]

Jesus, The Christ as the Bread of Life!
Above all, remember that we have Him of whom manna was a type and symbol, the very Bread of Life, the Redeemer.

“And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. …
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

“I am that bread of life.'

“Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.

“This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.'

“I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world” (John 6:35, 47–51).

Bear witness of the living reality of the Bread of Life, Jesus,The Christ, and of the infinite power and reach of His Atonement. Ultimately, it is His Atonement, His grace, that is our daily bread.

Seek to do His Will each day, to become One with Him as He is One with The Father (see John 17:20–23). Seek to do this daily, and The Heavenly Father will grant you your daily bread.
In the name of Jesus, The Christ, amen.

CITE FROM THE HEART
authentic feelings can heal a fractured soul where as information no matter how pertinent or precise only relates what one knows. 
Cheryl Allen-Hunter

For the purpose of knowledge,
for the purpose of [inspiring] clear confidence,
counsel that's true:
That's how noble ones give counsel,
That's the noble ones' counsel.
Knowing this, the wise
should give counsel without arrogance."
~Kathavatthu Sutta: Topics for Discussion [excerpt]
translated from the Pali by Thanissaro Bhikkhu
