If you don't heed my call and answer me
With joy, with the wine of your words, who will?
Shepherd of the world, refuge of the soul,
If you don't keep us from the wolf, who will?

If I was not so pitifully in love
I wouldn't then be standing at your door.
Don't say, "Go away, don't stand at my door!"
I wouldn't exist, my dear, if I didn't stand here.

When the violin

When
The violin
Can forgive the past

It starts singing.

When the violin can stop worrying
About the future

You will become
Such a drunk laughing nuisance

That God
Will then lean down
And start combing you into
His
Hair.

When the violin can forgive
Every wound caused by
Others

The heart starts
Singing.

Mysteries, Yes
 
Truly, we live with mysteries too marvelous
to be understood.
 
How grass can be nourishing in the
mouths of the lambs.
How rivers and stones are forever
in allegiance with gravity
while we ourselves dream of rising.
How two hands touch and the bonds
will never be broken.
How people come, from delight or the
scars of damage,
to the comfort of a poem.
 
Let me keep my distance, always, from those
who think they have the answers.
 
Let me keep company always with those who say
"Look!" and laugh in astonishment,
and bow their heads.

You Don't Have to Act Crazy Anymore

You don't have to act crazy anymore,
We all know you were good at that.

Now retire, my dear,
From all that hard work you do

Of bringing pain to your sweet eyes and heart.

Look in a clear mountain mirror -
See the Beautiful Ancient Warrior
And the Divine elements
You always carry inside

That infused this Universe with sacred Life
So long ago
And joined you Eternally
With all Existence - with God!

I look at myself and see such painful longing
I look at love and see how pleased she is watching me.
Once you are in that house of Beauty
abundant grace awaits you.

I overheard the stars whispering
that if ever one of them
caught a glimpse of that Beauty,
to tell the others at once.
But the lovers guard their secrets jealosly
for they know that when that Moon rises
everything will set.

Rumi

If you knew yourself for even one moment,
if you could just glimpse your most beautiful face,
maybe you wouldn't slumber so deeply in that house of clay.
Why not move into your house of joy and shine into every crevice!
For you are the secret Treasure-bearer, and always have been.
Didn't you know?

     Dreaming


Is it not amazing that at night when we dream we do not realise we are dreaming,
We take the dream events and dream people to be very real. 

It is only on waking in the morning that we realise it was all a dream
Despite all the happenings in my dream not only do I remain untouched, 
but I need change nothing about what is only a dream.

Likewise, the jnani, having awoken from the dream, says to the person, you are dreaming.
The person objects, but my suffering, my pains, my struggles?

It is only on "WAKING UP" that the suffering, the pains, the struggles, 
that are now taken to be so very real, are seen as they truly are, 
A Dream.

 


I loved this post. It is beautiful...

With love,

We have come into this exquisite world
to experience ever and ever more deeply

Everything rises out of the earth, sets back into the earth,
and is eventually covered up by earth.
To see that everything becomes earth is to see with the eye of intelligence.
When you go deeper, you see that earth is engulfed in wind,
and wind becomes diffused in the sky (Space). The space is the Life-Energy.
The name and form are all only imagined.
The essence is this Life-Energy, or Chaitanya, only.

Shri Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

Two Kinds Of Intelligence

There are two kinds of intelligence: one acquired,
as a child in school memorizes facts and concepts
from books and from what the teacher says,
collecting information from the traditional sciences
as well as from the new sciences.

With such intelligence you rise in the world.
You get ranked ahead or behind others
in regard to your competence in retaining
information. You stroll with this intelligence
in and out of fields of knowledge, getting always more
marks on your preserving tablets.

There is another kind of tablet, one
already completed and preserved inside you.
A spring overflowing its springbox. A freshness
in the center of the chest. This other intelligence
does not turn yellow or stagnate. It's fluid,
and it doesn't move from outside to inside
through conduits of plumbing-learning.

This second knowing is a fountainhead
from within you, moving out.

Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

Behold my Mother playing with Shiva,
lost in an ecstasy of joy!
Drunk with a draught of celestial wine, She reels,
and yet She does not fall. . .

In Wisdom's firmament the moon of Love is rising full,
And Love's Hood-tide, in surging waves, is flowing everywhere.
O Lord, how full of bliss Thou art! Victory unto Thee!

On every side shine devotees, like stars around the moon;
Their Friend, the Lord All-merciful, joyously plays with them.
Behold! the gates of paradise today are open wide. . . .

Sri Ramakrishna Paramhamsa
From the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna

Instruction can be on an individual basis only.
The same medicine cannot be prescribed for all.
