art that invites you to look again
You are the universe in ecstatic motion. ~Rumi
Put your thoughts to sleep, do not let them cast a shadow over the moon of your heart. ~Rumi
When you see the setting, wait for the rising. ~Rumi
When the heart
is eclipsed by the mind,
what you do may seem smart
but be received as unkind.
The moon dreams of the sun.
As long as division and separation rule, peace doesn’t stand a chance.
No words, no doubts, no zoning out
No moon, no mind, no thing to find
Only wholly unimaginably empty
You dance inside my chest, where no one sees you. But sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art. ~Rumi
You have seen my descent. Now watch my rising. ~Rumi
As much as the motivation to help others increases, so much closer does one approach Buddhahood. ~ His Holiness the Dalai Lama
just a playful moment…
Our embrace was like seeing the sun by the light of the moon.
All things grow from a compassionate heart.
With your head above the moon, heart below the sun, dream the dream of the universe.
The bucking mind will take you in all directions at once. Don’t listen to it!
Instead, Rumi says, “The soul has been given its own ears to hear things the mind does not understand.”
With the dusk of the outer light comes the dawning of the inner light.
In Chandra loka–the world of the moon–the soles of your feet dance the secret of your dreams.
Freedom is like the playground of a young child’s imagination; it knows no limits.
Rumi said, “You are God’s lover,
yet you worry what people are saying.”
And, “To love is to be God.”
Ah, don’t let me get started on Rumi… this will be a long post!
