Oh,where is this heart going,'I cried,
'My so intoxicated heart?'
And then the king of kings replied:
'Be still,it is coming towards you.'

Rumi

God has crated the world in play, as it were. This is called Mahamaya, the Great Illusion.
Therefore one must take refuge in the Divine Mother, the Cosmic Power Itself.
It is She who has bound us with the shackles of illusion.
The realization of God is possible only when those shackles are severed.

Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa

Even to detachment the heart can be attached,God knows,
For the heart is net spread for misery.
Transform my heart to a placeless place of safety,
Carry it to the mountains where it dies into You.
Come quickly! My body's tired of this country;
Make it drunk,set it free,call to it,"Come quickly!"
Offer me a cup overflowing with the vine of wonder
So i can no longer tell my heart from my feet.
Don't give me bread,or water,or peace,or sleep;
Thirst for You is the blood-money for a hundred souls like mine.

Cupbearer,pour the vine! Let it flow and keep flowing!
I am sick of swinging between hope and fear.
Shatter thought,i want nothing to do with it!
Tear from my heart all unsable imaginings!
Hack from their chains the shameless joys of passion!
Dance into our assembly,Beloved,unveil Your Face!
Scatter graces with each swirl of Your robe of flame.

May a wind from His garden breathe you this secret:
It is not only i who am speaking here
But you,too,your own soul,your own heart-
Only for you are we ever apart.

This morning,Contemplation led me to a garden
Neither outside this world nor within it.
"Garden of miracles!" I asked,"What kind of garden are you?"
It smiled. "One that fears nether winter nor autumn."

Like the way a garden burns
in a hundred shades of orange in the fall,
a Lover's heart shrivels for a sense of the Beloved's touch.

Tell all people, My daughter, that I am Love and Mercy itself.

Ever, Thou Lily rare!
Bloom in my garden fair.
My life art Thou!

Ah! give me, Jesus! wings as white as snow,
That unto Thee I soon may take my flight.
I long to be where flowers unfading blow;
I long to see Thee, O my heart's Delight!
I long to fly to Mary's mother-arms, -
To rest upon that spotless throne of bliss;
And, sheltered there from troubles and alarms,
For the first time to feel her gentle kiss.

St Therese of Lisieux

Remember, now, the day of Thy blest birth,
How angels, quitting heaven, sang joyously:
"To God be power, glory, lasting worth;
And peace to men of good-will ever be!"
For nineteen hundred years Thy promise Thou hast kept;
Thy children in that peace have waked, and worked, and slept.

To taste forever here
Thy peace, divinely dear,
I seek Thee now.

Remember O Thou Babe in swaddling bands!
Beside Thy crib I would forever stay.
There, with Thine angels, Lord of all the lands!
I would remind thee of that happy day.
O Jesus! call to mind the shepherds and wise men,
Who offered Thee their hearts, as I mine own again;

The Babes of Bethlehem see,
Who gave their blood for Thee.
Remember Thou!

Remember Thou that Mary's holy arms
Thou didst prefer to any royal throne.
Dear little One! she shielded Thee from harm,
She fed Thee with her virginal milk alone.
Oh, at that feast of love Thy mother gave to Thee,
My little Brother, grant that I a guest may be,

Thy little sister I.
Oh, hear my ardent cry:
Remember Thou!

St Therese of Lisieux

I said to my heart:
"How,my heart,can you be so crazy
As to swerve from the service
Of the One you bless?"
My heart replied:
"It is you who are mad
To see me wrongly-
I am always in His service,
It is you that stray!"

Give up to grace.
The ocean takes care of each wave 'til it gets to shore.

What is copper,that,when the philosopher's stone arrives,
Its "copperness" should not be annihilated by gold's attribute?
What is tiny insignificant seed that,when Spring arrives,
It should not be annihilated for a tree to arrive?
All intellects and all sciences are only stars;
You are the Sun that burns all their veils away.
This world is snow and ice,and You are the fiery Summer;
No sign of anything remains when the King's signs flame out!
Who am I- tell me!-that i could exist a moment near You?
Just one of Your sidelong glances,My Beloved,destroys me.

Rumi

You,the sudden resurrection,
You,the everlasting mercy,
You,who comes forth bringing fire
into the dry wood of my thoughts.
You,the chamberlain of the sun,
You,who merit every hope,
You,whom we seek,and you who seek,
You,the end and the begining.

Rumi
