belief

Rama said:

Any of my students can become liberated

in this lifetime.

However, not all of them believe.

Those who believe it, will do it.

 

do it finally

A trusted friend said to me:

Enlightenment will happen

When you decide to

DO IT FINALLY.

When you put aside the excuses

and say: I’m doing this, no matter what!

Believe in the Empowerment

(the doorway is still open)

make it your priority

(if it truly is what you want)

and accept the Gift that was given.

 

 

quietness by rumi

Quietness

Inside the new love, die.

Your way begins on the other side.

Become the sky.

Take an ax to the prison wall.

Escape.

Walk out like somebody suddenly born

into color.

Do it now.

You’re covered with thick cloud.

Slide out the side. Die,

and be quiet. Quietness is the surest sign

that you’ve died.

Your old life was a frantic running

from Silence.

 

The speechless full moon

comes out now.

~ Rumi (trans. Coleman Barks)
