otherwise, think to the end. If there be God,
then all is God's and all is for the best. Welcome
all that comes with a glad and thankful heart.
And love all creatures. This too will take you to
your Self.~Nisargadatta Maharajvia Along The Way
Everywhere transience is plunging into the depths of Being It is our task to
imprint this temporary, perishable earth into ourselves so deeply, so painfully and
passionately, that its essence can rise again, invisibly, inside us. We are the bees
of the invisible. We wildly collect the honey of the visible, to store it in the great
golden hive of the invisible.Rainer Maria Rilke

Kings have locked their doors
and each lover is alone with his love.Here, I am alone with you.By Rabia al-Basri (Rabia al- Adawiyya)
(717 - 801)English version by Charles Upton~~~~~~~~~~Rabia, sometimes called Rabia of Basra or Rabia al Basri, was born to a poor
family in Basra in what is now Iraq. Her parents died of famine and she was sold
into slavery.The story is told that her master one night woke up and saw a light shining above
her head while she was praying. Stunned, he freed her the next morning.Rabia chose a solitary life of prayer, living much of her life in desert seclusion.Her fame as a holy woman spread and people began to journey to her retreat, to
ask advice, to study, to learn.Today she is greatly revered by devout Muslims and mystics throughout the world.A LOVE POEM FROM THAY"The moment I die,
I will try to come back to you
as quickly as possible.
I promise it will not take long.
Isn't it true
I am already with you
in every moment?
I come back to you
in every moment.
feel my presence.
If you want to cry,
that I will cry with you.
The tears you shed
will heal us both.
Your tears are mine.The earth I tread this morning
Spring and Winter are both present in the moment.
The young leaf and the dead leaf are really one.
My feet touch deathlessness,
and my feet are yours.Walk with me now.
Let us enter the dimension of oneness
and see the cherry tree blossom in Winter.Why should we talk about death?
I don't need to die
to be back with you."~Thich Nhat Hanhvia Daily Dharma by Amrita Nadi
