Untitled

I talk to my inner lover, and I say, why such
rush?
We sense that there is some sort of spirit that loves
birds and animals and the ants -
perhaps the same one who gave a radiance to you in
your mother's womb.
Is it logical you would be walking around entirely
orphaned now?
The truth is you turned away yourself,
and decided to go into the dark alone.
Now you are tangled up in others, and have forgotten
what you once knew,
and that's why everything you do has some weird
failure in it.

Kabir, translated by Robert Bly




The Lilies Break Open Over the Dark Water

Inside
that mud-hive, that gas-sponge,
that reeking
leaf-yard, that rippling

dream-bowl, the leeches'
flecked and swirling
broth of life, as rich
as Babylon,

the fists crack
open and the wands
of the lilies
quicken, they rise

like pale poles
with their wrapped beaks of lace;
one day
they tear the surface,

the next they break open
over the dark water.
And there you are
on the shore,

fitful and thoughtful, trying
to attach them to an idea -
some news of your own life.
But the lilies

are slippery and wild - they are
devoid of meaning, they are
simply doing,
from the deepest

spurs of their being,
what they are impelled to do
every summer.
And so, dear sorrow, are you.

- Mary Oliver




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.

- Hafiz, from The Gift, Poems by Hafiz

Let's open today to our Beauty,
Let the Light of our True Nature
reveal our innate Perfection.
Let's let go of Fear.. which is just a
fantasy anyway.
Fearless, Beautiful, Lightfull, Perfect.
sounds like a fantastic day to these old ears...

love,

Do not say, 'It is morning,' and dismiss it with a name of yesterday. See it for the first time as a newborn child that has no name.

- Rabindranath Tagore




Bliss is Eternal,
even though it appears to arise when the mind dies.
Bliss is not an experience, it is your nature.
This is the Heart of the Wise.
This Gift is always calling to everyone,
"You are seated in the Heart of all Beings."
This is the Truth: Your face shines.

- Papaji, from The Truth Is, posted to AlongTheWay




I was Nothing

When my mind was cleansed of impurities,
like a mirror of its dust and dirt,
I recognized the Self in me:
When I saw Him dwelling in me,
I realized that He was the Everything
and I was nothing.

- Lalla
