Taking a Break 25-04-2019 05:08 PM

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.

Thank you for that blast from the past :

Thy Spirit is mingled in my spirit
even as wine is mingled with pure water.
When anything touches Thee,
it touches me.
Lo, in every case Thou art I!


al-Hallaj, Kitab al-Tawasin,

God and I have become like
two giant fat people living in a tiny boat.
We keep bumping into each other and laughing.

To get what you love
You must be patient with what you hate.

This Aloneness
This aloneness is worth more than a thousand lives.
This freedom is worth more than all the lands on earth.
To be one with the truth for just a moment,
Is worth more than the world and life itself.


There is a loneliness
more precious than life.
There is a freedom
more precious than the world.
Infinitely more precious
than life and the world
is that moment when one is alone with God.

― Rumi

What is seen is not the Truth
What is cannot be said
Trust comes not without seeing
Nor understanding without words
The wise comprehends with knowledge
To the ignorant it is but a wonder
Some worship the formless God
Some worship His various forms
In what way He is beyond these attributes
Only the Knower knows
That music cannot be written
How can then be the notes
Says Kabir, awareness alone will overcome illusion.

You're like a flower
Born from the
Essence of laughter
Good fortune & happiness
You're free & luscious
Like a blossoming branch

Rumi
