      If your knowledge of fire has been turned
      to certainty by words alone,
      then seek to be cooked by the fire itself.
      Don't abide in borrowed certainty.
      There is no real certainty until you burn;
      if you wish for this, sit down in the fire.

      In the Beginning
       
      Sometimes simplicity rises
      like a blossom of fire
      from the white silk of your own skin.
      You were there in the beginning
      you heard the story, you heard the merciless
      and tender words telling you where you had to go.
      Exile is never easy and the journey
      itself leaves a bitter taste. But then,
      when you heard that voice, you had to go.
      You couldn't sit by the fire, you couldn't live
      so close to the live flame of that compassion
      you had to go out in the world and make it your own
      so you could come back with
      that flame in your voice, saying listen...
      this warmth, this unbearable light, this fearful love...
      It is all here, it is all here.

      Most people derive their identity from their past, which is their thoughts. If
      you can derive your identity from consciousness itself, then you've
      transcended the personal. If you can live your life in a way that the
      transcendent can shine through it, through the personal realm into this world,
      then that is the fulfillment of your destiny.
      ~ Eckhart Tolle
       

       

      He's that rascally kind of yogi

      By Kabir
      (15th Century)

      English version by Linda Hess and Shukdeo Singh

      He's that rascally kind of yogi
      who has no sky or earth,
      no hand, foot,
      form or shape.
      Where there's no market
      he sets up shop,
      weighs things
      and keeps the accounts.
      No deeds, no creeds,
      no yogic powers,
      not even a horn or gourd,
      so how can he
      go begging?

      "I know you
      and you know me
      and I'm inside of you."

      When there isn't a trace
      of creation or destruction,
      what do you meditate on?
      That yogi built a house
      brimful of Ram.
      He has no healing herbs,
      his root-of-life
      is Ram.

      He looks and looks
      at the juggler's tricks,
      the magician's sleight-of-hand --
      Kabir says, saints, he's made it
      to the King's land.

      -- from The Bijak of Kabir, Translated by Linda Hess / Translated by Shukdeo Singh
