One

on Jun 13, 2013 in Poetry

The lamps are different, but the light is the same.
One matter, one energy, one light, one light-mind,
endlessly emanating all things.
One turning and burning diamond,
one,
one,
one.
Ground yourself,
strip yourself down,
to blind loving silence.
Stay there until you see,
you are gazing at the light with its own ageless eyes.

Rumi

Desire

Look how desire has changed in you,
how light and colorless it is,
with the world growing new marvels
because of your changing.

Rumi

Search for the Beloved

on Jun 13, 2013 in Poetry

Everything is a shadow of the Beloved.
Our seeking is Her seeking,
and our words are Her words.
We search for Her here and there,
while looking right at Her.
Sitting by Her side we ask again,
‘O Beloved, where is the Beloved?

Rumi

Radical Subjectivity

on Jun 13, 2013 in Quotes

A radical subjectivity, radical attunement to individuality, opens itself to a vast objectivity. So the story is the story of the cosmos, now. The moment is not just a passing, empty, nothing… yes, it’s empty–but with such fullness: that the great moment, the great life of the universe, is pulsating in it. And each one, each object, each place, each act… leaves a mark. And that story is singular. But, in fact, it’s story after story.
