When the ocean is surging and carrying away everything before it, who cares what are your views or mine?

Ramana

I
Have
Learned
So much from God
That I can no longer
Call
Myself

A Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim,
a Buddhist, a Jew.

The Truth has shared so much of Itself
With me

That I can no longer call myself
A man, a woman, an angel,
Or even a pure
Soul.

Love has
Befriended Hafiz so completely
It has turned to ash
And freed
Me

Of every concept and image
my mind has ever known

Hafiz

Translated by Daniel Ladinsky

Gratitude is the wine for the soul. Go on.Get drunk.

~ Rumi

The most important thing ever said about state of things now-

An outstanding speech by Uruguay’s president Mujica in Rio (by soroush9)

Poetry should be written the way adultery is committed: on the run, on the sly, during the time not accounted for. And then you come home, as if nothing ever happened.
