The idol of your self is the mother of all idols.
The material idol is only a snake;
while this inner idol is a dragon.
It is easy to break an idol,
but to regard the self as easy to subdue is a mistake.
- Rumi, version by Camille and Kabir Helminski, in Rumi: Daylight, posted to AlongTheWay
If some Power has turned you into a seeker,
don't you think it is the responsibility of that
Power to take you where you are supposed
to be taken?
- Ramesh S. Balsekar, from A Net of Jewels, posted to AlongTheWay
How long will you keep pounding
on an open door ...
Begging for someone
to 'open' it ??

O, friend! Nobody veils you,
In your path there is no thorn or weed,
but 'Yourself' ...
Shall I reach the 'Beloved' or not?
Between You and the 'Beloved'
there is ... nobody ...
