Mystical poems: “Be silent” by Rumi

  You are the only faithful student you have.All the others leave eventually. Have you been making yourself shallowwith making others eminent?

A quote from the Bhagavad Gita about our Oneness

  For one who sees with the eyes of the heart, rather than the senses, the world looks different; the blades of grass, the song of the birds, the drops of dew, all are seen to be none other than the One Life that surrounds us in every moment.  They see the One in every…
