      Trust


      If you asked me
      what it was like
      to experience
      absolute oneness,

      the best description I could give
      is to cry and smile
      and tell you
      how much I love you.

      Even that does not do it.
      But you know it anyway,
      what I cannot say,
      what is always said
      and I am saying now.

      Just let go
      of trying to
      figure it out

      and
      trust
      that this moment
      is as it should be.

      Blessings,

      Kip

      As you continue to meditate on compassion, when you see someone suffer, your first response becomes not mere pity but deep compassion. You feel for that person respect and even gratitude, because you now know that whoever prompts you to develop compassion by his or her suffering is in fact giving you one of the greatest gifts of all, as you are being helped to develop that very quality you need most in your progress toward enlightenment.

      That is why we say in Tibet that the beggar who is asking you for money, or the sick, old woman wringing your heart, may be the buddhas in disguise, manifesting on your path to help you grow in compassion and so move toward buddahood.

      - Sogyal Rinpoche, from Glimpse After Glimpse published by Harper Row.

      Nothing can make you happier than you
      are. All search for happiness is misery
      and leads to more misery. The only
      happiness worth the name is the natural
      happiness of conscious being.

      - Nisargadatta Maharaj, I Am That - Talks with Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, The Acorn Press, 1973



      The present difficulty is that the man thinks that he is the doer. But it is a mistake. It is the Higher Power which does everything and the man is only a tool. If he accepts that position he is free from troubles; otherwise he courts them.

      - Shri Ramana Maharshi, posted to MillionPaths



      Soul of all souls, life of all life
      you are That.
      Seen and unseen, moving and unmoving
      you are That.
      The road that lead to the City is endless;
      Go without head or feet
      and you'll already be there.
      What else could you be? -
      you are that.

      - Rumi, Quatrain 419, version by Jonathan Star, In the Arms of the Beloved, Jeremy P. Tarcher/Putnam, 1997
