      Do not say, "It is morning," and dismiss it with a name of yesterday.
      See it for the first time as a new-born child that has no name.
      ~ Tagore
       
      Look at the flowers - for no reason.
      It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are.

      "I can walk on the clouds!" says a child. But if she reached the clouds, she would
      find nowhere to place her foot. Likewise, if one does not examine thoughts, they
      present a solid appearance; but if one examines them, there is nothing there. That
      is what is called being at the same time empty and apparent. Emptiness of mind is
      not a nothingness, nor a state of torpor, for it possesses by its very nature a
      luminous faculty of knowledge which is called Awareness. These two aspects,
      emptiness and Awareness, cannot be separated. They are essentially one, like the
      surface of the mirror and the image which is reflected in it."

      You already are the very Beloved that
      you've been seeking.

      Although there seems to be separate
      personalities in the world, there's really
      no separate person.

      There's only "One."

      But it's a One without a "some-one" being
      attached to it.

      Because of this, no matter where it is that
      you rest your gaze, you're always looking
      directly into the multi-faceted "Face-of-God."

      And, miraculously, it's always been your very
      own face.

      Give up your idea about what you and God
      seem to look like.

      You both look exactly like "what is."

      Looking for your own face

      By Farid ud-Din Attar
      (1120? - 1220?)

      English version by Coleman Barks

       
      Your face is neither infinite nor ephemeral.
      You can never see your own face,
      only a reflection, not the face itself.
       
      So you sigh in front of mirrors
      and cloud the surface.
       
      It's better to keep your breath cold.
      Hold it, like a diver does in the ocean.
      One slight movement, the mirror-image goes.
       
      Don't be dead or asleep or awake.
      Don't be anything.
       
      What you most want,
      what you travel around wishing to find,
      lose yourself as lovers lose themselves,
      and you'll be that.
       
      Translated by Coleman Barks
       
       

       

      "When faced with a variety of views about the world and the self, right view
      looks at the views, not in terms of their content, but simply as events in the
      mind, in and of themselves. It sees them as part of a causal chain: fabricated,
      inconstant, stressful, and thus not-self, not worthy of attachment. In this way it
      makes the mind dispassionate to all other views: dispassionate toward the terms
      they use, dispassionate toward their claims to truth. Right view then turns on
      itself to see itself as part of a similar causal chain. This loosens any sense of
      attachment even for right view so that the mind can see the view simply as an
      event: 'there is this.' "
