Nondual Highlights Issue #2583, Wednesday, September 13, 2006

The idol of your self is the mother of all idols.
The material idol is only a snake;
while this inner idol is a dragon.
It is easy to break an idol,
but to regard the self as easy to subdue is a mistake.

- Rumi, version by Camille and Kabir Helminski, in Rumi: Daylight, posted to AlongTheWay

If some Power has turned you into a seeker,
don't you think it is the responsibility of that
Power to take you where you are supposed
to be taken?

- Ramesh S. Balsekar, from A Net of Jewels, posted to AlongTheWay

How long will you keep pounding
on an open door ...

Begging for someone
to 'open' it ??

- Rabi'a al-Adawiyya, posted to Mystic_Spirit

O, friend! Nobody veils you,
but Yourself!

In your path there is no thorn or weed,
but 'Yourself' ...

You said:
Shall I reach the 'Beloved' or not?

Between You and the 'Beloved'
there is ... nobody ...

but 'Yourself'.

- Awhadoddin Kermani, posted to Mystic_Spirit
