      frog pond -
      a leaf falls in
      without a sound

      - Bernard Lionel Einbond



      The monkey is reaching
      For the moon in the water.
      Until death overtakes him
      He'll never give up.
      If he'd let go the branch and
      Disappear in the deep pool,
      The whole world would shine
      With dazzling pureness.

      - Hakuin, from The Essential Teachings of Hankuin,, posted to DailyDharma



      What hurts you, blesses you.
      Darkness is your candle.
      Your boundaries are your quest ...

      I can explain this ...
      but .. it would break ...
      the glass cover
      on your heart,
      and there's no fixing that ...

      - Rumi, posted to Poetic_Mysticism



      The Worm's Waking


      This is how a human being can change:

      There's a worm addicted to eating
      grape leaves.

      Suddenly, he wakes up,
      call it Grace, whatever, something
      wakes him, and he's no longer
      a worm.

      He's the entire vineyard,
      and the orchard too, the fruit, the trunks,
      a growing wisdom and joy
      that doesn't need
      to devour.

      - Rumi, Mathnawi, verses IV: 2537-39, version by Coleman Barks, Delicious Laughter, posted to Sunlight



      When a person awakens to the spirit of unity
      and sees the oneness behind all things,
      his point of view becomes different,
      and his attitude changes thereby. There is
      nothing and no one who is divided or separate
      from him, so he experiences everything as
      the self of each being. When the consciousness
      of the external self is gone, then whatever
      appears before him is his self.

      Hazrat Pir-o-Murshid Hnayat Khan, posted to truevision
