the kingship of the dervish

patch-robed monks

 

Fleeting time

and the changes of matter

make all the kings of the earth but

transitory kings, ruling over transitory kingdoms;

this is because of their dependence upon their environment

instead of their imagination. But the kingship of the dervish,

independent of all external influences, based purely on

his mental perception and strengthened by the forces

of his will, is much truer and at once unlimited

and everlasting. Yet in the materialistic view

his kingdom would appear as nothing,

while in the spiritual conception

it is an immortal and

exquisite realm

of joy.

 

Hazrat Inayat Khan

the sage has no set mind

melt and let go and rest

 

The sage has no set mind.

She adopts the concerns

of others as her own.

 

She is good to the good.

She is also good to the bad.

This is real goodness.

 

She trusts the trustworthy.

She also trusts the untrustworthy.

This is real trust.

 

The sage takes the minds

of the worldly and spins them around.

People drop their ideas and agendas,

and she guides them like

beloved children.

attention to what is correct

marc henauer

 

Your inner power

makes influence possible.

There is danger in ambition and

agenda-making. The truly beneficial

influence is that which flows

naturally from your

attention to what

is correct.

plant yourself firmly in the tao

catherine nelson

 

Plant yourself

firmly in the Tao and 

you won’t ever be uprooted. 

Embrace Tao firmly and you won’t 

ever be separated from it. Your

children will thrive, and 

your children’s

children. 

 

Cultivate

goodness in your self, 

and goodness will be genuine. 

Cultivate it in your family, and goodness

will flourish. Cultivate it in your community, 

and goodness will grow and multiply. 

Cultivate it in your country, and

goodness will be abundant. 

Cultivate it in the world, 

and goodness will be

everywhere. 

 

How do I know

the world works like this? 

By watching.
