The Nonduality Highlights - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NDhighlightsLight will someday split you open;
even if your life is now a cage...
Love will surely burst you wide open
into an unfettered, blooming new galaxy.~ Hafiz Shiraziphoto by Alan Larusphoto by Alan LarusA certain bird sits in this tree. The delight of life is where
Nobody knows where the bird is, nor what all this music means........Kabir says: You brother, you seeker, this whole thing is a great mystery.
Tell all the wise men it would be a good thing to
know where this bird spends the night.~Kabir
The tree has entered my hands,
The sap has ascended my arms,
The tree has grown in my breast -
The branches grow out of me, like arms.Tree you are,
Moss you are,
You are violets with wind above them.
A child - so high - you are,
And all this is folly to the world.~ Ezra PoundCan You Imagine?
For example, what the trees do
not only in lightening storms
or the watery dark of a summer's night
or under the white nets of winter
but now, and now, and now - whenever
we're not looking. Surely you can't imagine
they don't dance, from the root up, wishing
to travel a little, not cramped so much as wanting
a better view, or more sun, or just as avidly
more shade - surely you can't imagine they just
stand there loving every
minute of it, the birds or the emptiness, the dark rings
of the years slowly and without a sound
thickening, and nothing different unless the wind,
and then only in its own mood, comes
to visit, surely you can't imagine
patience, and happiness, like that.
