the world is a vessel for spirit

snow crows

 

If you try

to grab hold of the

world and do what you want

with it, you won’t

succeed.

 

The world

is a vessel for spirit,

and it wasn’t made to be manipulated.

Tamper with it and you’ll spoil it.

Hold it, and you’ll

lose it.

 

With tao,

sometimes you move ahead

and sometimes you stay back; sometimes

you work hard and sometimes you rest; sometimes

you’re strong and sometimes you’re weak;

sometimes you’re up; sometimes

you’re down.

 

The sage

remains alert, avoiding

extremes, avoiding extravagance,

avoiding excess.

 

from The Tao te Ching of Lao Tzu,

Chapter 29

there is no such thing as other


 

To the

ordinary being,

others often require tolerance.

To the highly evolved being, there is no

such thing as tolerance, because there is no

such thing as other. She has given up all

ideas of individuality and extended

her goodwill without prejudice

in every direction.

i follow the religion of love


 

My heart has

become capable of every form:

It is a pasture for gazelles and a cloister

for Christian monks, a temple for idols and

the pilgrim’s Ka’ba, and the tables of

the torah and the book of

the Qur’an.

 

I follow

the religion of love:

whatever way love’s camels take,

that is my religion and

my faith.

 

Ibn ‘Arabi
