But if a mirror ever makes you sad you should know that it does not know you.”

I am the boundless ocean.
This way and that,
The wind, blowing where it will,
Drives the ship of the world.
But I am not shaken.
I am the unbounded deep
In whom the waves of all the worlds
Naturally rise and fall.
But I do not rise or fall.
I am the infinite deep
In whom all the worlds
Appear to rise.
Beyond all form,
Forever still.
Even so am I.

~ Ashtavakra Gita

Borrowed enlightenment

Tired,
After a long a walk 
I asked her
"Mother, can you pour me water from your pot?" 

She asked
"Dear Monk, What is that baggage you are carrying?" 

I said,             
"Mother, they are Books of Buddha, I have been studying for years"  

With a motherly smile,...she pointed me towards nearby river        
"Dear,  leave your baggage behind, Drink directly from the source"

God is not a person. You cannot annoy him and you
cannot buttress him, you cannot flatter him. You cannot persuade him to your
own way. Whether you believe in him or not, that doesn't matter. A law exists
beyond your belief. If you follow it, you are happy. If you don't follow it, you
become unhappy.
~Osho.

“Peace can exist only in the present moment. It is ridiculous to say “Wait until I finish this, then I will be free to live in peace.” What is “this”? A diploma, a job, a house, the payment of a debt? If you think that way, peace will never come. If you are not living in peace at this moment, you will never be able to. If you truly want to be at peace, you must be at peace right now. Otherwise, there is only “the hope of peace some day.”
— Thich Nhat Hanh

“When you are practicing zazen [meditation], do not try to stop your thinking.  Let it stop by itself.  If something comes into your mind, let it come in, and let it go out.  It will not stay long.  When you try to stop your thinking, it means you are bothered by it.  Do not be bothered by anything.  It appears as if something comes from outside your mind, but actually it is only the waves of your mind, and if you are not bothered by the waves, gradually they will become calmer and calmer.  In five or at most ten minutes, your mind will be completely serene and calm.  At that time your breathing will become quite slow, while your Pulse will become a little faster.”

~ Shunryu Suzuki Roshi

"It is very important to go out alone, to sit under a tree—not with a book, not with a companion, but by yourself—and observe the falling of a leaf, hear the lapping of the water, the fishermen’s song, watch the flight of a bird, and of your own thoughts as they chase each other across the space of your mind. If you are able to be alone and watch these things, then you will discover extraordinary riches which no government can tax, no human agency can corrupt, and which can never be destroyed."

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. 
Don't go back to sleep. 
You must ask for what you really want. 
Don't go back to sleep. 
People are going back and forth across the door sill 
Where the two worlds touch. 
The door is round and open. 
Don't go back to sleep.

Listen to presences inside poems,
Let them take you where they will.

Follow those private hints,
and never leave the premises.

“When we let our mind relax, a moment will come when we rest without thoughts. This stable state is like an ocean without waves. Within this stability a thought arises. This thought is like a wave which forms on the surface of the ocean. When we leave this thought alone, do nothing with it, not “seizing” it, it subsides by itself into the mind where it came from.”
