Listen to the story told by the reed,
of being separated.
Since I was cut from the reedbed,
I have made this crying sound.
Anyone apart from someone he loves,
understands what I say.
Alas, time has passed and we are alone
In a sea without a shore in sight.
The ship, the night, the chill and we sail
In the sea of God, by God’s wisdom and grace.
“O my souls,
I searched in you
From end to end,
But I found nothing
Except The Beloved!
O my soul,
You might as well go ahead
And call me a blasphemer
Cause I’m going to say it out-loud:
O my soul
You are actually The Beloved!”
My heart, I have seen how your tears turned into a sea
now every wave keeps saying
O silent lover, seeker of the higher planes,
may the Beloved always be with you
You have struggled hard, may you grow wings and fly
Keep silent my dear heart, you have done so well
Those who desire to understand,
who are looking to find that which is eternal,
without beginning and end,
will walk together with greater intensity,
will be a danger to everything which is unessential,
to unrealities, to shadows.
They will concentrate.
They will become the flame,
because they understand.
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti ~
“Weeping is like the clouds,
and longing is like the heat of the sun.
Just as the sun’s heat is the cause
of bringing rains from the clouds,
by which this world remains in existence;
similarly, separation, longing for Him and restlessness –
all these are like fires which make the currents
of grace and mercy of God burst out,
as the rain does from the clouds,
and pacify the hearts of devotees.
Tears in the eyes and pain in the heart
the two pillars between which we pass
In spiritual life there is no room for compromise.
Awakening is not negotiable; we cannot bargain to hold on to things that please us while relinquishing things that do not matter to us.
A lukewarm yearning for awakening is not enough to sustain us through the difficulties involved in letting go.
It is important to understand that anything that can be lost was never truly ours,
anything that we deeply cling to only imprisons us.
How long has it been since I came to this place?
With no one to tend them, the grounds have run wild
My begging bag and bowl just sit gathering dust
A solitary lantern lights the bare walls
Evening rain patters on my lonely door
Every detail is complete
Ah! What else is there that I need?
“Unswerving devotion to me with a single-minded concern for yog,
fondness of living in sequestered places,
Constantly resting in the awareness that is called adhyatm
perception of the Supreme Spirit who is the end of realization of truth
all knowledge and whatever is contrary to them is ignorance.”
