When the mirror of my consciousness became clear,
I saw that my family and others I
love are the same as me.
The "you" and "I" thought
does not occur.
The entire world is God.
- Lalla, from "Naked Song", version by Coleman Barks, posted to AlongTheWay
Sri Bhagavan read out, from the Parbuddha Bharata, Kabir's saying
that ... you know the drop merges into the ocean but few know that the
ocean merges into the drop. This is para bhakta, said he.

Clarity and love are naturally present.
They are the nature of Consciousness.
It is not you who impart them.

... Realize the strength within you
... bring it forward
so that everything you do
may not be your 'own' doing
but the doing of that 'truth' within you...
What can all the powers in the world
do to that which is 'within' you
that unborn and undying one
whom the sword cannot pierce
whom the fire cannot burn?
What is there that you can fear
when you are conscious of
'who' is within you?
- Aurobindo, posted to Poetic_Mysticism
Understand, perceive O beloved mind
How can you slumber and be a Lover?
Having received, then share it all!
Or would you rather lose it possessing?
If crumbs be all that you have to fare,
Does it matter if it is salt-less or tasty?
When eyes are loaded with deep sleep,
What is then the pillow and bedding?
Says Kabir; such is the path of Love.
Why lose heart having committed yourself?
