Some suggestions for you :

In the bazaar of herbs and potions Don't wander aimlessly, Find the shop with a potion That is sweet.

Somewhere beyond right and wrong, there is a garden. I will meet you there.

Be empty of worrying. Think of who created thought! Why do you stay in prison when the door is so wide open? Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking. Live in silence. Flow down and down in always widening rings of being.

Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.

Don't complain about autumn. Walk with grief like a good friend. Listen to what he says. Sometimes the cold and dark of a cave give the opening we most want.

The message behind the words is the voice of the heart.

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

The deeper the grief, the more radiant the love.

On my heart in beautiful calligraphy You've written words that only You and I can know. Their secret You promised to reveal one day but now I see You were only teasing.

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.

If you are irritated by every rub, how will your mirror be polished??

Beyond Islam and unbelief there is a desert plain. For us, there is a passion in the midst of that expanse. The knower who reaches there will prostrate, there is neither Islam nor unbelief, nor any 'where' in that place.

Whatever lifts the corners of your mouth, trust that.

The spirit is so near that you can't see it! But reach for it… don't be a jar, full of water, whose rim is always dry. Don't be the rider who gallops all night and never sees the horse that is beneath him.
