Sweet scent of Divine

This rose is from the dust of one like me.
His joy within the rose, thus I can see.
My companion and confidant it is, because
The colorful rose brings the sweet scent of divine

Wings of Silence

God turns you from one feeling to another …..

and

teaches you

by

means of

opposites,

so that

you will have two wings to fly –

not

one.

Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi ( 1207 – 1273 )

Love all.

Secret Vaults of Heaven

Tender words we spoke

to one another

are sealed

in the Secret Vaults of Heaven.

One day like rain,

they will fall to earth

and grow green

all over the world.

(1207 – 1273 )

Love all.

Night Magic

love 41

“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.”

Cup of Love

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.

Love all.

That I Am

And For no reason

I start skipping like a child.

And For no reason

I turn into a leaf

That is carried so high

I kiss the Sun’s mouth

And dissolve.

And For no reason

A thousand birds

Choose my head for a conference table,

Start passing their

Cups of wine

And their wild songbooks all around.

And

For every reason in existence

I begin to eternally,

To eternally laugh and love!

When I turn into a leaf

And start dancing,

I run to kiss our beautiful Friend

And I dissolve in the Truth

That I Am

Mystic of Varanasi

Today is the birth anniversary of the Bhakti saint Kabir Das who lived around 1440 – 1518 CE.

Kabir, the mystic of Kashi (Varanasi) is well-known and loved for his wise rhymes (dohe) that have lived on for centuries.

The one who understands the power of love has achieved wisdom, and wisdom may not be measured by the books one reads.

Kabir’s poetry is exceptionally beautiful, deep, direct and candid. The teachings behind his words are conveyed quietly but impactfully, without losing their sweetness or freshness.

Over the ages, the followers of Kabir and the lovers of his enchanting poetry have memorized, pondered and performed his couplets to seek spiritual awakening. He shared his knowledge with all – regardless of the faith or caste of his listeners and followers.

Love All.
