      All this dying is not the death of the physical form:
      this body is only an instrument for the spirit.
      There is many a martyred soul that has died to self in this world,
      though it goes about like the living.
      The animal self has died, though the body, which is its sword,
      survives:
      the sword is still in the hand of that eager warrior.
      The sword is the same sword; the person is not the same person,
      but this appearance of identity bewilders you.

      - Rumi, Mathnawi V: 3281; 3826-3828, version by Camille and Kabir Helminski , , posted to Sunlight



      As long as you're dreaming that you're awake,
      there'll be no end to your fears or your desires.

      They will only end when you become fully
      awakened to your own dreaming.

      Suffering finds its roots in your desire to be free
      from something that's present - even if it's only a
      desire to be free from dreaming the Dream.

      But no desire is really spiritual - including the
      so-called spiritual desire to have no spiritual
      desires.

      And yet, paradoxically, it's all absolutely
      spiritual.

      Yes! All of it.

      Every fear. Every desire.

      Aside...

      A most exquisite ecstasy
      is experienced,
      in that moment,
      when one steps aside,
      completely,
      with focused intent,
      and gratitude,
      allowing
      one's Real Self,
      without veil or obstruction,
      to shine through...

      There is a reality
      even prior to
      heaven and earth

      Indeed, it has no form,
      much less a name.
      Eyes fail to 'see' it

      It has no voice
      for 'ears' to detect ...

      To call it 'Mind' - or 'Buddha'
      violates its nature

      For it then becomes like
      a visionary flower
      in the air

      It is not 'Mind' -
      nor 'Buddha'

      Absolutely quiet -
      and yet illuminating
      in a mysterious way

      It allows itself - to be 'perceived'
      only by the 'clear-eyed' ...

      People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering.
