I have lived on the lip of insanity, wanting to know reasons, knocking on a door. It opens. I've been knocking from the inside.
But listen to me. For one moment quit being sad. Hear blessings dropping their blossoms around you.
Be melting snow. Wash yourself of yourself.
Start a huge, foolish project, like Noah…it makes absolutely no difference what people think of you.
Be like the sun for grace and mercy. Be like the night to cover others' faults. Be like running water for generosity. Be like death for rage and anger. Be like the Earth for modesty. Appear as you are. Be as you appear.
We come spinning out of nothingness, scattering stars like dust.
My friend, the sufi is the friend of the present moment. To say tomorrow is not our way.
What strikes the oyster shell
doesn't damage the pearl.
You dance inside my chest, where no one sees you,
There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled. There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled. You feel it, don't you?
Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn't matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again , come , come.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along.
Now is the time to unite the Soul and the world.
Be empty of worrying. Think of who created thought! Why do you stay in prison When the door is so wide open?
Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in.
In your light I learn how to love.
Anyone who genuinely and consistently with both hands look for something, will find it.
Come, even if you have broken your vow one thousand times, come, yet again, come, come.
Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.
In your beauty, how to make poems.
There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled.
Either give me more wine or leave me alone.
And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself?
Now is the time to unite the soul and the world. Now is the time to see the sunlight dancing as one with the shadows.
