Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I will meet you there.
Plant the love of the holy ones within your spirit; don’t give your heart to anything, but the love of those whose hearts are glad.
This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet.
The moment I first heard love I gave up my soul, my heart, and my eyes.
That which God said to the rose, and caused it to laugh in full-blown beauty, He said to my heart, and made it a hundred times more beautiful.
Listen with ears of tolerance! See through the eyes of compassion! Speak with the language of love
I have seen the king with a face of Glory, He who is the eye and the sun of heaven, He who is the companion and healer of all beings, He who is the soul and the universe that births souls.
And so it is, that both the Devil and the angelic Spirit present us with objects of desire to awaken our power of choice.
Oh, bird of my soul, fly away now, For I possess a hundred fortified towers.
It may be that the satisfaction I need depends on my going away, so that when I’ve gone and come back, I’ll find it at home.
Whenever you are alone, remind yourself that God has sent everyone else away so that there is only you and Him.
You know the value of every article of merchandise, but if you don’t know the value of your own soul, it’s all foolishness.
However much I might try to expound or explain Love, when I come to Love itself, I am ashamed of my explanations… Love alone can explain the mysteries of love and lovers.
Beg of God the removal of envy, that God may deliver you from externals, and bestow upon you an inward occupation, which will absorb you so that your attention is not drawn away.
