You wander from room to room Hunting for the diamond necklace That is already around your neck.

What sort of person says that he or she wants to be polished and pure, then complains about being handled roughly?

Don't fill your bowl With food from every boiling pot you see. Not every joke is humorous, So don't search for meaning Where there isn't one.

Have you ever seen a seed fallen to earth not rise with a new life why should you doubt the rise of a seed named human.

This is how the world speaks to us. It delights in spring blossoms, even as they fall.

The wave of Atlast came along and caulked the body's ship; when the ship is wrecked once more, the turn of union and encounter will come.

We are the night ocean filled with glints of light. We are the space between the fish and the moon, while we sit here together.

Live life as if everything is rigged in your favor.

Respond to every call that excites your spirit.

The body is a device to calculate the astronomy of the spirit.

Your curly hair is seduction of infidelity while your moon-face is piety, Glimpse it from the infidel's eye you'll then see bot as a source of blessing. In every moment like the Moon the venerated "bot" shows its face, Until the Arab symbols surfaced, the heart then hid its secrets.

Therefore the tongue of mutual understanding is different indeed: to be one in heart is better than to be one in tongue. Without speech and without sign or scroll, hundreds of thousands of interpreters arise from the heart. The birds, all and each, their secrets of skill and knowledge and practice.

Beauty surrounds us.

Plant the love of the holy ones within your spirit; don't give your heart to anything, but the love of those whose hearts are glad.

I have found the heart and will never leave this house of light.

If everyone could see what love is, each would set up a tent pole in the ocean: the world's population pitched and living easily within the sea.

Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think and twice as beautiful as you'd ever imagined.

Dear soul, if you were not friends with the vast nothing inside, why would you always be casting your net into it, and waiting so patiently?

Wear gratitude like a cloak and it will feed every corner of your life.

There is a voice that doesn't use words. Listen.

You are not meant for crawling, so don't. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly.

No prayer is complete without presence.

Let silence take you to the core of life.

O, happy the soul that saw its own faults.

I do not know who lives here in my chest, or why the smile comes. I am not myself, more the bare green knob of a rose that lost every leaf and petal to the morning wind.

I shall be happy Even for insults from you I only ask that you Keep some attention on me.

There is no salvation for the soul but to fall in love. Only lovers can escape out of these two worlds.

Pronouns no longer apply in the tavern's mud-world of excited confusion and half-articulated wantings.

Love is the soul's light, the taste of morning, no me, no we, no claim of being.

The whole world is a form for truth. When someone does not feel grateful for that, the forms appear to be as he feels, they mirror his anger, his greed, his fear. Make peace with the universe. Take joy in it. It will turn to gold… Every moment a new beauty.

You are not one you are a thousand. Just light your lantern.

Be like a tree and let the dead leaves drop.

What messages are momently flashing from his eyes to mine— may my eyes be gladdened and intoxicated by his message!

Love is the whole thing. We are only pieces.

Those who don't feel this love pulling them like a river, those who don't drink dawn like a cup of springwater or take in sunset like a supper, those who don't want to change, let them sleep.

I'm the devoted slave of anyone who doesn't claim to have attained dining with God at every way station. Many inns must be left behind before you reach your home.

Peaceful is the one who's not concerned with having more or less.

Protect yourself from your own thoughts.

Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you truly love.

Love said to me, there is nothing that is not me. Be silent.

The moment you accept what troubles you've been given, the door will open.

I've gotten free of that ignorant fist that was pinching and twisting my secret self. The universe and the light of the stars come through me.

The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along.

Swim out of your little pond.

Do not worry if all the candles in the world flicker and die. We have the spark that starts the fire.

Through love all that is bitter will be sweet. Through love all that is copper will be gold. Through love all dregs will become wine. Through love all pain will turn to medicine.

Although you appear in earthly form Your essence is pure Consciousness. You are the fearless guardian of Divine Light. So come, return to the root of the root of your own soul.

How do I know who I am or where I am? How could a single wave locate itself in an ocean.

We love that s why life is full of so many wonderful gifts.
