Each of us inevitable 
Each of us limitless 
Each of us here as divinely as any is here.
- Walt Whitman

There is something in us
That has nothing to do with night and day,
Diamonds which come from no earthly mine.

Alan Watts - Myth of myself - Full Lecture

(Source: zenmind-nomind)

image

I start out on this road, call it love or emptiness.
I only know what’s not here.

Resentment seeds, backscratching greed,
worrying about outcome, fear of people.

When a bird gets free,
it does not go back for remnants
left on the bottom of the cage.

Close by, I’m rain. Far off,
a cloud of fire. I seem restless,
but I am deeply at ease.

Branches tremble. The roots are still.
I am a universe in a handful of dirt,
whole when totally demolished.

Talk about choices does not apply to me.
While intelligence considers options,
I am somewhere lost in the wind.
~ Rumi

With no mind, flowers lure the butterfly;
With no mind, the butterfly visits the blossoms.

Yet when flowers bloom, the butterfly comes;
When the butterfly comes, the flowers bloom.”

~Taigu Ryokan

The Self is not seen,
  for it has no visible form.

  Yet, when the mind becomes clear,
  And, the heart becomes pure
then the Self can be known.

  And those who know it …
enjoy Eternity…’

  - Katha Upanishad

They will ask you
what have you produced.
Say to them,
except for Love,
what else can a Lover produce?
