HUMANS ARE THEIR QUIET ANSWER
IF AS SILENT AS THE ANSWER ITSELF
RESIDING IN/OF/AS THE GREAT NOTHING..
THE SOURCE OF ALL
When the ocean comes to you as a lover,
marry, at once, quickly, for God’s sake!
Don’t postpone it!
Existence has no better gift.
No amount of searching will find this.
A perfect falcon, for no reason,
has landed on your shoulder,
and become yours.
Silence is the root of everything.
If you spiral into its void,
a hundred voices will thunder messages you long to hear..
Galen, the great physician, asked one of his assistants
to give him a certain medicine.
"Master, that medicine is for crazy people!
You're far from needing that!"
Galen: Yesterday a madman turned and smiled at me,
did his eyebrows up and down, and touched my sleeve.
He wouldn't have done that if he hadn't recognized
in me someone congenial."
Anyone that feels drawn,
for however short a time, to anyone else,
those two share a common consciousness.
From Rumi's Little Book of Love and Laughter
version by Coleman Barks
as fish out of water hear the waves,
or a hunting falcon
hears the drum's
I’ve beat this drum of Love for so long,
for you whom I adore, singing:
“My life depends upon my dying”
This keeps my body and soul alive.
I dream but I do not sleep.
We would rather die in our dread
Than climb the cross of the present
And let our illusions die.
~W. H. Auden
I’ll tell you the truth:
Listen to the secret sound,
the real sound,
which is inside you..
The world can never own a man who wants nothing.
