      ‎"A bird does not sing because it has an answer.
      It sings because it has a song."
      ~ Chinese Proverb
      by Christine Wushke on Facebook


      When no one listens
      To the quiet trees
      When no one notices
      The sun in the pool.

      Where no one feels
      The first drop of rain
      Or sees the last star

      Or hails the first morning
      Of a giant world
      Where peace begins
      And rages end:

      One bird sits still
      Watching the work of God:
      One turning leaf,
      Two falling blossoms,
      Ten circles upon the pond.

      One cloud upon the hillside,
      Two shadows in the valley
      And the light strikes home.
      Now dawn commands the capture
      Of the tallest fortune,
      The surrender
      Of no less marvelous prize!

      Closer and clearer
      Than any wordy master,
      Thou inward Stranger
      Whom I have never seen,

      Deeper and cleaner
      Than the clamorous ocean,
      Seize up my silence
      Hold me in Thy Hand!

      Now act is waste
      And suffering undone
      Laws become prodigals
      Limits are torn down
      For envy has no property
      And passion is none.

      Look, the vast Light stands still
      Our cleanest Light is One!


      - Thomas Merton

      Meet your own self. Be with your own self,
      listen to it, obey it, cherish it, keep it in
      mind ceaselessly. You need no other guide.
      As long as your urge for truth affects your
      daily life, all is well with you. Live your
      ...life without hurting anybody. Harmlessness
      is a most powerful form of Yoga and it will
      take you speedily to your goal. This is what
      I call nisarga yoga, the Natural yoga. It is
      the art of living in peace and harmony, in
      friendliness and love. The fruit of it is
      happiness, uncaused and endless.

      A Poem by Corina Bardasuc

      I turn around and round
      The self
      Like a dog
      Chasing its own tail.
      Trying to sniff out
      My very soul.
      My senses lead me
      Most of the time.
      My hearing wasted
      On the song of birds.
      My taste sense wasted
      On many hardened bones.
      My eyes hardened
      By the chase of many fleeting
      But yesterday I think,
      When I was circling yet
      I caught the scent
      Of a thought.
      Unlike the other thoughts.
      It simply told me

      ~Corina Bardasuc

      This fresh and insightful satsang reveals an essential but often-missed
      aspect of spirituality: the art of listening. Adyashanti shows us how we can
      experience true listening-not just hearing sounds with our ears, but rather
      opening our entire being to what is.
