Many have died; you also will die. The drum of death is being beaten. The world has fallen in love with a dream. Only sayings of the wise will remain. All know that the drop merges into the ocean, but few know that the ocean merges into the drop. ...But if a mirror ever makes
you should know
that it does
you. If you want the truth,
I’ll tell you the truth:
Listen to the secret sound,
the real sound,
which is inside you. The river that flows in you also flows in me. ... What is God?
He is the breath inside the breath. Love does not grown on trees or brought in the market, but if one wants to be "LOVED" one must first know how to give (unconditional)LOVE.. If you don't break your ropes while you're alive, do you think ghosts will do it after? The sun is within me and so is the moon Wherever you are is the entry point The Lord is in me, the Lord is in you,as life is in every seed, put false pride away and seek the Lord within.. Listen to the secret sound, the real sound, which is inside you. The one no one talks of speaks the secret sound to himself, and he is the one who has made it all. I don't think there is such a thing as
an intelligent mega-rich
For who with a fine mind can look
out upon this world and
what can nourish
souls. Listen, my friend. He who loves understands. "Life the veil that obscures the heart, and there you will find what you are looking for. Faith,Waiting in the heart of a seed, Promises a miracle of life which cannot prove at once. Slowly slowly O mind...
Everything in own pace happens,
Gardner may water a hundred buckets...
Fruit arrives only in its season. Do not keep the slanderer away,
treat him with affection and honor:
Body and soul, he scours all clean,
babbling about this and that. You have left Your Beloved and are thinking of others:
and this is why your work is in vain. Whether I be in the temple or in the balcony, in the camp or the flower garden, I tell you truly that every moment my Lord is taking His delight in me. When at last you are come to the ocean of happiness, do not go back thirsty. Just throw away all thoughts of
and stand firm in that which you are. The home is the abiding place; in the home is reality; the home helps to attain Him Who is real. So stay where you are, and all things shall come to you in time.
The Kazi is searching the words of the Koran, and instructing others:
but if his heart be not steeped in that love, what does it avail, though he be a teacher of men?
As the river enters into the ocean,
so my heart touches Thee.
Between the poles of the conscious and the unconscious, there has the mind made a swing:
Thereon hang all beings and all worlds, and that swing never ceases its sway. (pg. 16)
So long as man clamours for the I and Mine, his works are as naught: When all love of the I and the Mine is dead, then the work of the Lord is done.
Love does not grow on trees or brought in the market, but if one wants to be "loved" one must first know how to give unconditional love.
Oh, razum, vse se zgodi,
ko nastopi čas za to.
Vrtnar lahko drevo zalije stokrat,
toda sadje bo zraslo,
ko bo prišel pravi letni čas. Kabir says, only they are pure who’ve completely cleansed their thinking.
