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

“You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?” 

“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”  

 

“Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.” 

“Knock, And He’ll open the door

Vanish, And He’ll make you shine like the sun

fall, And He’ll raise you to the heavens

Become nothing, And He’ll turn you into everything.” 

Jalal_al-Din_Rumi,_Showing_His_Love_for_His_Young_Disciple_Hussam_al-Din_Chelebi“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.” 

“My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.” 

“Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you truly love.” 

 

“Be empty of worrying.

Think of who created thought!

Why do you stay in prison

When the door is so wide open?”

“This being human is a guest house. Every morning is a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor…

Welcome and entertain them all. Treat each guest honorably. 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.” 

 

“But listen to me. For one moment

quit being sad. Hear blessings

dropping their blossoms

around you.” 

 

soul vibration - spirit - energetic body“Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.” 

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” 

“Keep walking, though there’s no place to get to.

Don’t try to see through the distances.

That’s not for human beings. Move within,

But don’t move the way fear makes you move.” 

 

spiritual sunset“The morning wind spreads its fresh smell. We must get up and take that in, that wind that lets us live. Breathe before it’s gone.” 

 

“Work on your strong qualities

and become resplendent like the ruby.

Practice self-denial and accept difficulty.

Always see infinite life in letting the self die.

Your stoniness will decrease; your ruby nature will grow.

The signs of self-existence will leave your body,

and ecstasy will take you over.” 

 

spiritual_journey_by_primayoga-d4mz1jb“Peaceful is the one who’s not concerned with having more or less.

Unbound by name and fame, he is free from sorrow from the world and mostly from himself.” 

 

“On a day

when the wind is perfect,

the sail just needs to open and the world is full of beauty.

Today is such a

day.”
