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.

Some suggestions for you :

I looked in temples, churches, and mosques. But I found the Divine within my heart.

Wherever a pain is, that's where the cure goes; wherever poverty is, that's where provision goes. Wherever a difficult question is, that's where the answer goes; wherever a ship is, water goes to it. Don't seek the water; increase your thirst, so water may gush forth from above and below.

Inside any deep asking is the answering.

Are you fleeing from love because of a single humiliation? What do you know of love except the name? Love has a hundred forms of pride and disdain, and is gained by a hundred means of persuasion. Since love is loyal, it purchases one who is loyal: it has no interest in a disloyal companion.

I am merely a guest born in this world, to know the secrets that lie beyond it.

If you can't smell the fragrance don't come into the garden of Love. If you're unwilling to undress don't enter into the stream of Truth. Stay where you are. Don't come our way.

Gamble everything for love, if you are a true human being. If not, leave this gathering. Half-heartedness doesn't reach into majesty.

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.

Each has to enter the nest made by the other imperfect bird.

Oh soul, you worry too much. You have seen your own strength. You have seen your own beauty. You have seen your golden wings. Of anything less, why do you worry? You are in truth the soul, of the soul, of the soul.

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

Would you become a pilgrim on the road of love? The first condition is that you make yourself humble as dust and ashes.

You think because you understand 'one' you must also understand 'two', because one and one make two. But you must also understand 'and'.

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.
