A quote on poetry by Yves Bonnefoy

In fact, it is the speaking-being that has created this universe, even if language excludes him from it. This means that we are deprived through words of an authentic intimacy with what we are, or with what the Other is. We need poetry, not to regain this intimacy, which is impossible, but to remember that…

Mystical Poems: “Hidden gems” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Hidden Gems We know not what lies in us, till we seek.     Men dive for pearls—they are not found on shore; The hillsides, most unpromising and bleak,     Do sometimes hide the ore. Go, dive in the vast ocean of thy mind,     O man! far down below the noisy waves, Down in the…

POEMS: “Turn inward” by Mystic Meandering

Turn Inward… Turn… inward, toward “The Silence;” The Light in your Heart; the space of Pure Awareness… Turn from the voices of an unconscious world; the voices of confusion, hatred, and ignorance; the ones who distract you from *knowing* the Truth of who you are… ~ Turn ~ Turn and Listen in the deep Silence,…

MYSTICAL POEMS: “The shape of Love” by Adyashanti

  The Shape of Love What we see is not the most important. Could dust rise without the invisible hand of the wind? Could a fan turn without any current? Could lungs breathe without breath? Tell me What is the shape of Love? How much does Joy weigh when held in the palm of your…

Poems: “Keeping quiet” by Pablo Neruda

artwork: Josephine Wall “Keeping quiet” Now we will count to twelve and we will all keep still for once on the face of the earth, let’s not speak in any language; let’s stop for a second, and not move our arms so much. It would be an exotic moment without rush, without engines; we would…

“Cosmic Breathing”     Sitting in the Silence of the Inner Landscape, I suddenly realize the Cosmic Breath of Infinity is slowly breathing this body – breathing in… breathing out… Held in the pause between breaths – I recognize that “I” am being breathed by an unheard Rhythm… From the Inner Window, at the edge…

A quote from Franz Kafka on learning to be quiet and still…

You need not do anything. Remain sitting at your table and listen. You need not even listen, just wait. You need not even wait, just learn to be quiet, still and solitary, and the world will freely offer itself to you unmasked. It has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet. —Franz…

MYSTICAL POEMS: “Primordial Pool of Silence” by Mystic Meandering

Primordial Pool of Silence…   Days unfold like rushing waterfalls. Nights I welcome the silence; just sitting, just being, allowing the flow of the day to come to the edge and gently fall away… A smooth, sliding movement finding its own rhythm empties out the eddies of life… Letting go of trying, trying to make…

A quote from “A Course in Miracles” (about going within)

There is a silence into which the world cannot intrude. There is an ancient peace you carry in your heart and have not lost. Lay down your arms and come without defense into the quiet place where Heaven’s peace holds all things still at last. Lay down all thoughts of danger and of fear. As…
