When you go through a hard period,
When everything seems to oppose you,
? When you feel you cannot even bear one more minute,
Never give up!
Because it is the time and place that the course will divert!


Rumi

Look carefully around you and recognize
the luminosity of souls.
Sit beside those who draw you to that.

I want that love that moved the mountains.
I want that love that split the ocean.
I want that love that made the winds tremble.
I want that love that roared like thunder.
I want that love that will raise the dead.
I want that love that lifts us to ecstasy.
I want that love that is the silence of eternity.

Rumi

Should everything pass away,
it couldn't happen without You.
This heart of mine bears Your imprint;
it has nowhere else to turn.

The eye of the intellect is drunk with You,
the wheeling galaxy is humble before You,
the ear of ecstasy is in Your hand;
nothing happens without You.

The soul is bubbling with You,
the heart imbibes from You,
the intellect bellows in rapture;
nothing happens without You.

You, my grape wine and my intoxication,
my rose garden and my springtime,
my sleep and repose;
nothing happens without You.

You are my grandeur and glory,
you are my possessions and prosperity,
you are my purest water;
nothing happens without You...

Rumi

You know you are. How do you know it? And with what did you know it?
This is the sum total of my teaching needed to put you on the right track,
its very quintessence.

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Into the bosom of the one great sea
Flow streams that come from hills on every side
Their names are various as their springs,
And thus in every land do men bow down
To one great God, though known by many names.

The Folks Songs of Southern India By Gover 1871 p. 165


He is the One, the One alone. In Him all deities become one.

Atharva Veda

At every breath try to be in communion with Him through His Name.

La forza/The power
 
You know, there's a star
In the night for me,
It lights up my way
To eternity,
It's my guide,
That never leaves me
In the immensity
 
The power of destiny
Makes me hover,
The time of happiness is near,
Is our affinity
A dream or reality
On the pink wings of Love
 
When I go down this road,
I always feel free,
I wish everything around us was
A fairytale,
Our love
Will be our guide
To the infinity,
Eternally
 
The power of destiny
Makes me hover,
The time of happiness is near,
Is our affinity
A dream or reality
On the pink wings of Love

 Elina Nechayeva

Proclaim the glory of God's name as long as life remains in you;
The dazzling splendour of His radiance Hoods the universe!
Like nectar streams His boundless love, filling the hearts of men with joy:
The very thought of His compassion sends a thrill through every limb!
How can one fittingly describe Him? Through His abounding grace
The bitter sorrows of this life are all forgotten instantly.

On every side- on land below, in sky above, beneath the seas:
In every region of this earth - men seek Him tirelessly,
And as they seek Him, ever ask: Where is His limit, where His end?
True Wisdom's Dwelling-place is He, the Elixir of Eternal Life,
The Sleepless, Ever-wakeful Eye, the Pure and Stainless One:
The vision of His face removes all trace of sorrow from our hearts.

from The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna

My life is hanging on my lips now
Come my beloved so I may live again
For if you come when I am no exist
To what avail shall that be?

The things that change are not our real life

The things that change are not our real life.
Within us there is another body, another beauty.
It belongs to that ray of Light which never changes.
We must discover how to mingle with It and become one
with that Unchanging thing.
We must realize and understand this treasure of Truth.
That is why we have come to the world.
Within your heart in a space no bigger than an atom,
God has placed the 18,000 universes.

Take one step beyond yourself --
the whole path lasts no longer than a step.
Beg alms from yourself -- don't go wandering --
outside yourself the Way cannot be found.
If it's love you're after, naught yourself;
only the lover minus self knows love.
In the hope of His union suffer
the weight of separation all your life.
A rose without thorns cannot be found ?
there is no gathering of roses without shedding blood.
Seek His pearl-secret from the ocean-hearted dervish ?
there is no diver in His ocean but the dervish heart.
Speak not of infidelity or faith
no, be sacrificed in the way of love;
for in His presence there is no room, no time
for dogma, infidelity or faith.
Seeker, no one attains to love
without rising above yesterday and tomorrow.
The day is today. No lover
knows care for the future!
Speak no more of silver and gold with Nimatullah
this lovely gold of yours is nothing but a jaundiced corpse.

Family life, which is the Ashrama of the householder, can also take you in His direction, provided it is accepted as an asrama. Lived in this spirit, it helps man to progress towards Self-realization.

Nevertheless, if you hanker after anything such as name, fame or position, God will bestow it on you, but you will not feel satisfied.

The Kingdom of God is a whole, and unless you are admitted to the whole of it you cannot remain content. He grants you just a little, only to keep Your discontent alive, for without discontent there can be no progress. You, a scion of the Immortal, can never become reconciled to the realm of death, neither does God allow you to remain in it.

He Himself kindles the sense of want in you by granting you a small thing, only to whet your appetite for a greater one. This is His method by which He urges you on. The traveller on this path finds it difficult and feels troubled, but one who has eyes to see can clearly perceive that the pilgrim is advancing.

The distress that is experienced burns to ashes all pleasure derived from worldly things. This is what is called ?tapasya?. What obstructs one on the spiritual path bears within itself seeds of future suffering. Yet the heartache, the anguish over the effects of these obstructions, are the beginning of an awakening to Consciousness.

My Mother! Who is my Mother? Ah, She is the Mother of the Universe.
It is She who creates and preserves the world, who always protects Her children,
and who grants whatever they desire: dharma, artha, kama, moksha.
A true son cannot live away from his mother. The mother knows everything.
The child only eats, drinks, and makes merry;
 he doesn't worry himself about the things of the world.

You are our moon upon this earth,
Our down that breaks by night,
Our shield in dangerous times,
My cloud of honeyed rain.

Rumi
