Everyone sees the unseen in proportion to the clarity of his heart, and that depends upon how much he has polished it. Whoever has polished it more sees more - more unseen forms become manifest to him.

Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder. Help someone's soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd.

I desire you more than food or drink.
My body my senses my mind
hunger for your taste.
I can sense your presence in my heart
although you belong to all the world.
I wait with silent passion for one gesture
one glance from you.

Love brings the dead back to life. Love transforms the King into a
slave.
Love is the consummation of Gnosis. How could a fool sit on such a throne?

Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking. Live in silence. Flow down and down in always widening rings of being.

Doing as others told me, I was blind.
Coming when others called me, I was lost.
Then I left everyone, myself as well.
Then I found Everyone, Myself as well.

You have woken up late, lost and perplexed but
don't rush to your books looking for knowledge.
Pick up a flute instead and let your heart play.

Never be without remembrance of Him, for His remembrance gives strength and wings to the bird of the Spirit. If that objective of yours is fully realized, that is "Light upon Light." But at the very least, by practicing God's remembrance your inner being will be illuminated little by little and you will achieve some measure of detachment from the world.

This is the kind of Friend
You are—
Without making me realize
My soul’s anguished history,
You slip into my house at night,
And while I am sleeping,
You silently carry off
All my suffering and sordid past
In Your beautiful
Hands.

There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled.
There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled.
You feel it, don’t you?

Observe the wonders as they occur around you. Don’t claim them. Feel the artistry moving through, and be silent.

Failure is the key to the kingdom within.
Your prayer should be:
"Break the legs of what I want to happen.
Humiliate my desire.
Eat me like candy."

If in thirst you drink water from a cup, you see God in it. Those who are not in love with God will see only their own faces in it.

Study me as much as you like, you will never know me, for I differ a hundred ways from what you see me to be. Put yourself behind my eyes, and see me as I see myself, for I have chosen to dwell in a place you cannot see.

Gamble everything for love, if you are a true human being.
If not, leave this gathering.
Half-heartedness doesn’t reach into majesty.
You set out to find God,
but then you keep stopping for long periods
at mean-spirited roadhouses.

Don’t wait any longer…

In your Light I learn how to Love.
In your beauty, how to make poems.
You dance inside my chest,
where no one sees you,
but sometimes I do,
and that sight becomes this art.

I’ll go a hundred steps beyond reason,
Free from the existence of good and evil.
You are so good that I’m beyond the veil.
Let the clueless know: I will love myself.

Find the sweetness in your own heart, then you may find the sweetness in every heart.

Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.

Why look outside?
Become like melting snow,
Wash yourself of yourself.
