A quote from Ramana Maharshi on “love thy neighbor as thyself”

It is every intelligent man’s experience …wrong-doing recoils on the doer sooner or later. Why is this so? Because the Self is one in all. When seeing others you are only seeing yourself in their shapes. ‘Love they neighbor as thyself’ means that you should love him because he is your Self. —Ramana Maharshi S….

MYSTICAL POEMS: “Microprosopos” by Elsa Barker (1869-1954)

Microprosopos BEHIND the orient darkness of thine eyes,    The eyes of God interrogate my soul    With whelming love. The luminous waves that roll  Over thy body are His dream. It lies  On thee as the moon-glamour on the skies;            And all around—the yearning aureole    Of His effulgent…

SHORT MYSTICAL POEMS BY OSHO on “The soul longings”

There is a music which has no sound, the soul is restless for such silent music. There is a love in which the body is not, the soul longs for such unembodied love. There is a truth which has no form, the soul longs for this formless truth.

MYSTICAL POEMS: “He Who Knows Love” by Elsa Barker

He Who Knows Love He who knows Love–becomes Love, and his eyes Behold Love in the heart of everyone, Even the loveless: as the light of the sun Is one with all it touches. He is wise With undivided wisdom, for he lies In Wisdom’s arms. His wanderings are done, For he has found the…

MYSTICAL POEMS: “Inside each of us there is a poet” by Osho

Words that come out of the depth and fullness of heart Echo the infinite, just as a tiny flower expresses infinite beauty. When love breathes life into words What is expressed is not what is said, but what wants to be said. Inside each of us there is a poet, there is poetry, But because…

POEMS: “Unison Benediction” by May Sarton

Unison Benediction Return to the most human, nothing less will nourish the torn spirit, the bewildered heart, the angry mind: and from the ultimate duress, pierced with the breath of anguish, speak of love. Return, return to the deep sources, nothing less will teach the stiff hands a new way to serve, to carve into…

NATURE POEMS: “The clematis flower” by Amira (La flor de clemátide)

The clematis flower Delicate little tendrils, like soft hands Reaching up as if in prayer, up and up they expand Searching  for the light…   They sense their path, they have foresight Their inner compass is their guidance While they grow in silence   Until they reach the perfect height To blossom like open hearts…

ANIMAL POEMS: “All Creatures” By M. Linda Steffey

All of God’s creatures have rights, a fact that most people don’t seem to recognize. This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves. All Creatures I love all Creatures living, Lord… The smallest of Thy beast The great Animals…the powerful And those called “Thy least”… They are…

A quote from the Mundaka Upanishad “On Love” (God)

Photo: Intricate carvings on a stone wheel in the ancient Hindu Sun Temple at Konark, Orissa, India. 13th Century. “The Cosmic wheel” Bright but hidden, the Self dwells in the heart. Everything that moves, breathes, opens, and closes Lives in the Self. This is the Source of Love And may be known through love but…

A quote from Neale Donald Walsch on the “essence of everything”

All of life is animated by a single fantastic energy, which is the essence of everything that is — including you. Isn’t that amazing? Now, because this essence is who you are and what you are made of, it can obviously never leave you. Perhaps not so obviously, it can also be wonderfully helpful. It…
