"Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children."

~ Khalil Gibran

Many paths lead from
The foot of the mountain
But at the peak
We all gaze at the
Single bright moon

Ikkyu
painting by Ito Jakuchu, 18.c.

"There is a brokenness
out of which comes the unbroken,
a shatteredness
out of which blooms the unshatterable.
There is a sorrow
beyond all grief which leads to joy
and a fragility
out of whose depths emerges strength.

There is a hollow space
too vast for words
through which we pass with each loss,
out of whose darkness
we are sanctioned into being.

There is a cry deeper than all sound
whose serrated edges cut the heart
as we break open to the place inside
which is unbreakable and whole,
while learning to sing."

~ Rashani

"i know love does to pain
what sunlight does to rain,
in the absence of doership
we’re reminded once again

that inherent in each cloud
is a rainbow not-yet-born,
the awakened state is present
even as we mourn.

so let the tears keep flowing
and trust whatever comes,
each moment is a banquet
of abundance, not of crumbs." ~ Rashani
(painting by Christy Freeman)

Love is never lost. If not reciprocated, it will flow back and soften and purify the heart.

~ Washington Irving

A very small degree of hope is sufficient to cause the birth of love.

~ Stendhal

Comment by Luna Arjuna on April 15, 2014 at 10:08am

I celebrate myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.

―  Walt Whitman

Longing, such longing — in the groves
I’ll cast me at thy feet,
And soothe my wearied soul less this longing
In nature’s converse sweet.

—  Patrick S. Cassidy
