My Swan, Let Us Fly


My swan, let us fly to that land
Where your Beloved lives forever.

That land has an up-ended well
Whose mouth, narrow as a thread,
The married soul draws water from
Without a rope or pitcher.

My swan, let us fly to that land
Where your Beloved lives forever.

Clouds never cluster there,
Yet it goes on and on raining.
Don?t keep squatting outside in the yard ?
Come in! Get drenched without a body!

My swan, let us fly to that land
Where your Beloved lives forever.

That land is always soaked in moonlight;
Darkness can never come near it.
It is flooded always with the dazzle
Of not one, but a million suns.

My swan, let us fly to that land
Where your Beloved lives forever.

Kabir

In anguish everyone prays to Him, in joy does none
To One who prays in happiness, how sorrow can come.

Kabir

The universe came into being gradually over six days.
God could have just commanded, Be!
Little by little a person reaches forty and fifty
and sixty, and feels more complete.
God could have thrown full-blown prophets
flying through the cosmos in an instant.

Jesus said one word, and a dead man sat up,
but creation usually unfolds, like calm breakers.

The Word came from the non-physical realm.
When the Word lifted up the veil and showed himself,
Then people realized
That the Word was a manifestation of God.
If the Word comes from God's Wisdom,
It accomplishes the spiritual processes of the Divine. 
But if it comes from us human beings,
It causes quarrels and wars.

He speaks to us in silence, telling us to come Home.

Strange Is The Path When You Offer Love

Do not mention the name of love,
O my simple-minded companion.
Strange is the path
When you offer your love.
Your body is crushed at the first step.

If you want to offer love
Be prepared to cut off your head
And sit on it.
Be like the moth,
Which circles the lamp and offers its body.
Be like the deer, which, on hearing the horn,
Offers its head to the hunter.
Be like the partridge,
Which swallows burning coals
In love of the moon.
Be like the fish
Which yields up its life
When separated from the sea.
Be like the bee,
Entrapped in the closing petals of the lotus.

Mira's lord is the courtly Giridhara.
She says: Offer your mind
To those lotus feet.

I have swept away your offenses like a cloud,
    your sins like the morning mist.
Return to me,
    for I have redeemed you.

If you have faith in the Guru,
it means you have His grace.

Man desires that the Lord should not throw him-entangle him, in the meshes of Maya.
 But it is futile to entertain this desire.
Even the Lord Himself incarnates in the Maya,
carries on-displays His sport in it.
How, then can we be freed from Maya?
When we are residing in the domain of Maya, we should develop devotion for the Lord,
 by remaining unaffected by Maya. Maya then could not affect us.
We should learn to participate in the sport of the Lord,
 in the Maya of the Lord, like the Lord Himself.
 Never should we forget that Maya belongs to the Lord Himself.
Then we won't be troubled by Maya.

Sri Bhausaheb Maharaj

This silence, this moment, every moment,
 if it's genuinely inside you, brings what you need. There's nothing to believe. Only when I stopped believing in myself did I come into this beauty.

Sit quietly, and listen for a voice that will say,
'Be more silent.' Die and be quiet.
 Quietness is the surest sign that you've died.
 Your old life was a frantic running from silence.
Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.

Live in silence.

Rumi
