        I choose to love you in silence, for in silence I find no rejection.

I choose to love you in loneliness, for in loneliness no one owns you but me.

I choose to adore you from a distance. For distance will shield me from pain.

     I choose to kiss you in the wind, for the wind is gentler than my lips.

 I choose to hold you in my dreams, for me in dreams, you have no ends.

      Happiness is the result of an enlightened mind

"You are not meant for crawling, so don’t.
                  You have wings.
           Learn to use them and fly."

Anything which is more than our necessity is poison.

                         It may be power,
                                wealth,
                               hunger,
                                 ego,
                               greed,
                             laziness,
                                love,
                            ambition,
                      hate or anything.

                                                                            Rumi

Your task is not to seek for love,
but merely to seek and find
all the barriers within yourself
that you have built against it.

                                          This being human is a guest house.
                                             Every morning is a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor…
                                            Welcome and entertain them all.
                                                Treat each guest honorably.
  The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in.
          Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.


                                                                                          ⁃℺                                        ℛꭒꭑℹ

                                                      Sorrow prepares you for joy.

              It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter.

It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place.



                                                                              ⁃℺                                                                    ℛꭒꭑℹ

This silence, this moment, every moment, if it’s genuinely inside you, brings what you need.
                                            There’s nothing to believe.

              Only when I stopped believing in myself did I come into this beauty.
                   Sit quietly, and listen for a voice that will say, ‘Be more silent.’


                                                Die and be quiet.
                               Quietness is the surest sign that you’ve died.

                             Your old life was a frantic running from silence.
                                 Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.

                                                     Live in silence.



                                  ⁃℺                                                                    ℛꭒꭑℹ

Color

How did the rose ever open its heart
And give to this world all its beauty?
It felt the encouragement of light
Against its being.
Otherwise, we all remain
Too frightened.


- Hafez (or Hafiz)

                                           “It is not easy to stop thinking ill of others.

Usually one must enter into a friendship with a person who has accomplished that great feat himself.
                               Then something might start to rub off on you of that true elegance.”
