Happy New Year!

Dear Friends of Ontogony,

At the dawn of this new year, may your spirit glow brightly with hope, growth, and limitless possibilities. The journey of self-discovery and transformation continues, and we are excited to walk this path together.

In the tapestry of the coming year, may the “threads” from Ontogony’s multiple paths weave together to create a masterpiece of well-being and enlightenment. May your practice deepen, your understanding expand, and your heart radiate with the love and wisdom cultivated within.

May 2024 be a year of profound connection, self-realization, and shared joy. Let the flame within each of us ignite, and collectively let us light up the world with positivity, compassion, and purpose.

Wishing you a New Year filled with infinite possibilities and a continued embrace at your hearth within.

Intense cold makes water ice. 
Then the hard ice turns to slush
and back to water, so there are three
forms of consciousness: the individual, 
the world, and God, which in the sun 
of True Awareness melt to one flowing:
Lalla is that. 

In meditation, I entered the love-furnace, 
burned impurities away, and as the sun
of a new knowing rose, I realized 
that the words “Lalla” and “God”
point to this peacefulness. 

*The word Lalla is derived from the Berber language noun Alallu which means "dignity", and from the Berber verb "lullet" meaning "to be free" or "to be noble".

Happy New Year!

In Gratitude for your Presence in our Community
