Thich Nhat Hanh

October 30, 2013

We have a lamp inside us.
The oil of that lamp is our breathing,
our steps, and our peaceful smile.
Our practice is to light up the lamp.

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Nisargadatta Maharaj

October 28, 2013

To see reality is as simple as to see one’s face in a mirror. Only the mirror must be clear and true. A quiet mind, undistorted by desires and fears, free from ideas and opinions, clear on all levels, is needed to reflect reality.

Be clear and quiet, alert and detached,
all else will happen by itself.

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj

Kabir

October 23, 2013

When the Day came
The Day I had lived and died for
The Day that is not in any calendar
Clouds heavy with love
Showered me with wild abundance.
Inside me, my soul was drenched.
Around me, even the desert grew green.

~ Kabir

Ikko Narasaki

October 21, 2013

The mind is constantly trying to figure out
what page it’s on in the story of itself.
Close the book. Burn the bookmark. End of story.
Now the dancing begins.

Deep in the sea there are riches
beyond your imagination,
but if you seek safety,
that is at the shore.

Rainer Maria Rilke

October 16, 2013

I love the dark hours of my being.
My mind deepens into them.
There I can find, as in old letters,
the days of my life, already lived,
and held like a legend, and understood.

Then the knowing comes:
I can open to another life
that’s wide and timeless.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Leonard Cohen

Ring the bells that still can ring,
forget your perfect offering,
there’s a crack in everything,
that’s how the light gets in.

I offer you peace.
I offer you love.
I offer you friendship.

I see your beauty.
I hear your need.
I feel your feelings.

My wisdom flows from
the highest Source.
I salute that Source in you.

Let us work together.
For unity and peace.

Hafiz

October 9, 2013

A day of Silence
Can be a pilgrimage in itself.
A day of Silence
Can help you listen
To the Soul play
In marvelous lute and drum.
Is not most talking
A crazed defense of a crumbling fort?
I thought we came here
To surrender in Silence,
To yield to Light and Happiness,
To Dance within
In celebration of Love’s Victory!

~ Hafiz
