And Jesus was a sailor
When he walked upon the water
And he spent a long time watching
From his lonely wooden tower
And when he knew for certain
Only drowning men could see him
He said "All men will be sailors then
Until the sea shall free them"
Leonard Cohen (1934)
Ring the bell that still can ring.
Forget the perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in.
Leonard Cohen (1934)
"Light is the shadow of God. "- Plato
"The center of every man's existence is a dream. Death, disease, and insanity are merely material accidents, like a toothache or a twisted ankle. That these brutal forces always besiege and often capture the citadel does not prove that they are the citadel. "- G. K. Chesterton
"Wisdom is so kind and wise that wherever you may look you can learn something about God. Why would not the omnipresent teach that way? "- St. Catherine Of Siena
"If God said 'Rumi pay homage to everything that has helped you enter my arms' There would not be one experience of my life, not one thought, not one feeling, not any act, I would not bow to. "- Jalal Al Din Rumi
"Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way. "- American Indian
""Is there anything that I can do to make myself enlightened?" "As little as you can do to make the sun rise in the morning." "Then of what use are the spiritual exercises you prescribe?" "To make sure you are not asleep when the sun begins to rise." "- Anthony De Mello
"If you persist in trying to attain what is never attained (It is Tao's Gift!), If you persist in making effort to obtain what effort cannot get, If you persist in reasoning about what cannot be understood, You will be destroyed by the very thing you seek. To know when to stop, To know when you can get no further by your own action, This is the right beginning! "- Thomas Merton
