This silence, this moment, every moment, if it's genuinely inside you, brings what you need. There's nothing to believe. Only when I stopped believing in myself did I come into this beauty. Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking. Live in silence.

Human beings are mines.
World-power means nothing.
Only the ineffable,
jeweled inner life matters.

Once the seed of faith takes root
it cannot be blown away,
even by the strongest wind –
Now that’s a blessing.

Many of the faults you see in others, dear reader, are your own nature reflected in them. As the Prophet said, ‘The faithful are mirrors to one another.

is a reflection of you.

That which God said to the rose and caused it to laugh in full blown beauty...he said to my heart, and made it a hundred times more beautiful..."

Listen, O drop, give yourself up without regret,
and in exchange gain the Ocean.
Listen, O drop, bestow upon yourself this honour,
and in the arms of the Sea be secure.
Who indeed should be so fortunate?
An ocean wooing a drop!
In God's name, in God's name, sell and buy at once!
Give a drop, and take this Sea full of pearls!

You think of yourself
as a citizen of the universe.
You think you belong
to this world of dust and matter.
Out of this dust
you have created a personal image,
and have forgotten
about the essence of your true origin.

But this love path has no expectations.
You are uneasy riding the body?

Dismount. Travel lighter.
Wings will be given.

A spirit that lives in this world and does not wear the shirt of love, such an existence is a deep disgrace. Be foolishly in love, because love is all there is. There is no way into Presence except through a love exchange.

By day I praised you, and never knew it. By night I stayed with you, and never knew it. I always thought that I was me--but no, I was you and never knew it

If you could get rid of yourself just once, the secret of secrets would open to you. The face of the unknown, hidden beyond the universe would appear on the mirror of your perception.

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

The songs we sing
are like foam on the surface of sea of being
while the precious gems lie deep beneath.
But the tenderness in our songs
is a reflection of what is hidden in the depths.
Stop the flow of your words,
open the window of your heart and
let the spirit speak.

Fall in Love with the agony not the ecstacy,
then the Beloved will fall in Love with you.

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.

The Beloved looked at me
With compassion and said,
‘How can you go on living without me?’
I said, ‘I swear, like a fish out of water.’
He said, ‘Then why do you hold so tight
to the dry land?
