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?

Natural Mystic - Bob Marley

Coming alone,
Departing alone,
Both are delusion:
Let me teach you how
Not to come, not to go!

~ Ikkyū

Without opening your door,
you can open your heart to the world.
Without looking out your window,
you can see the essence of the Tao.

The more you know,
the less you understand.

The Master arrives without leaving,
sees the light without looking,
achieves without doing a thing.

Tao Te Ching verse 47
