LOVE, HARMONY, AND BEAUTY
Hazrat Inayat Khan

It might be thought that the philosophers and mystics and sages, who are so near and close to God, might take too much liberty with the world. But they are, on the contrary, the most tender and sensitive towards mankind. They are ready to share anyone's trouble, to share anyone's sorrow, to share everyone's depression and despair. They are ready to console any and every person with their words, to help with their service, and to give their sympathy always to those who need it. They shrink at no sacrifice of time, money, pleasure, or comfort. As Christ teaches, 'Whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.'

What does all this teach us? It is all a lesson in sympathy for one's fellow man, to teach us to share in his troubles, in his despair. For whoever really experiences this joy of life, finds that it becomes so great that it fills his heart and his soul. It does not matter if he has fewer comforts or an inferior position than many in this world, because the light of his kindness, of his sympathy, of the love that is growing, the virtue that is springing up in his heart, all fill the soul with light. There is nothing now that he lacks in life, for he has become the king of it.

Such a person becomes a healer, a real healer. He heals a person with his glance, with a kind word, with his hand, by his comfort, by his nature. What a healing that is! Unpretentious, unassuming; the real healing is when a man is in sympathy with another's trouble and gives him a helping hand. He is the possessor of the true wine. He who can send from his eye the glance that proves the sympathy and help he is anxious to give, what a healing power he has! Is it not like a young bird being taken in beneath the brooding wings? There cannot be a more beautiful process of healing than this among all the different methods by which people have endeavored to heal.

Some may ask what, then, should be the object which one should love in this life? Is there any particular object that a man can be recommended to love? Is it best to love one's parent or friends? To love one friend only, or to love just one beloved of the opposite sex? Should one love something in the abstract, some spirit, some ideal, some name, or something, which is beyond man's nature? Or should one love something idealized as the God whom one worships? There are many who say that there is no love which is useful but the love of God. All other forms are worthless. Another says that he or she can love no one who is of the opposite sex, having once been disappointed in this way. Another will say, 'I will love no human being; I can love my dog or my cat better. They do not disappoint me, whereas I was once disappointed in man.' Another says, 'I love my money, because if I am in need that is the only friend that comes to my rescue. The deposit I have in my bank does more for me than anyone can do. Why than should I not love my money?' And still another person says, 'If God is all, if He is to have all love, then why not love the chair, or the table, or a book, or the work that a person does a work of art, a piece of music; is it not the same?' But all these questions are voiced by hearts which have once been disappointed, once broken. They broke and became closed, and once the doors of the heart are closed there is no light to guide its path. That is what is so beautiful in the little English song, 'The light of a whole life dies when love is done.' There is no light when love is done. When love is done, the heart is closed.

The garden of humility
unfolds the innocence
that brings the arms of safety
to one’s heart, a child of this pouring now
relaxing into the joy
of being
purifying our stance
as the oceans of pain and release
churn with the light ways
of quickening cauldron evolving
mindfulness – the tightrope of conscience
slow and subtle we enact eternity
blazing with the unswept breath of our ancestors
the stars walk in our dreams
the trees pray for the humans
I see
the universe
beyond
the billboards
of the mind
and their
ad
ver
tisements
for the
miser-y
of the little me
boiling in ego’s prison
a bird with numb feathers
sidetracked by others delusions and quicksands of despair

yet in spring time re birth
when one is empowered
by nature
we all receive the invitation to Open
to our own power
for there is abundant autonomous inherent divine
life
-
force

in
every
single
living
being
every manifestation of creation is the song of source
each being is a mythic instrument of vertical and horizontal
dimensions intersecting
we are life spiraling in concert with the pulse
of cosmic ordered chaos sacred ripening as a festive matrix
be the flower
of your own inner mandala
in the center of the thriving and turning garden of your heart’s being
witness the witnessing
dare to receive
the kiss of mystery and dive
into
the silence
between the sound
beneath the breath
before the thought
beyond the feeling
the dance in motion
erupting and emptying
we are one convergence of
consequence and presence
seeds targeting our own sacred growth
students of time’s passages
the heavens carving the phases of our souls

"Men of wit and understanding convert a stone lying on the ground into a stepping stone, while men devoid of common sense turn even a stepping stone into a stumbling block on their way. In life, it is the way of looking at things that matters."

"All the peace and happiness of the whole globe,
the peace and happiness of societies,
the peace and happiness of family,
the peace and happiness in the individual persons' life,
and the peace and happiness of even the animals and so forth,
all depends on having loving kindness toward each other."

Questions and Answers by Thich Nhat Hanh
The Benefits of Silence


Q: Could tell us about the benefits of silence and how we could bring that home with us from this retreat?
A:Many of us have realized in the last few days that silence can be enjoyable. We realize that there are many things that we do not have to say, and that then we can reserve the time and energy to do other things that can help us to look more deeply into ourselves and things around us.
If you are pushed by your habit energy to say something, don't say it. Instead, take a notebook and write it down. A day or two later, read what you wrote, and you might find out that it would have been an awful thing to say. So slowly you become master of yourself, and you know what to say and what not to say.
I remember one time I proposed to a sister that she practice silence. She was an elder nun and she had a few negative seeds in her that prevented her from being happy. She was just a little bit too hard on the other sisters. I proposed to her that she was a very talented person, very skillful in many things, and she could make many people happy if only she knew how to be silent and to say only things that needed to be said.
I proposed to her that she use only three sentences for three months. She could repeat these three sentences as many times as she wanted and I told her that if she practiced that for a week, she would feel happiness right away. The first sentence was, "Dear sister,is there anything I can do to help you?" The second sentence was, "Did you like what I did to help you?" The third was, "Would you have any suggestion that I can do it better?" If she could say that, she would make many people happy and the happiness would go back to herself very quickly.
In the family we can practice silence. We can ask the other members of the family to agree that we will practice silence for three days or for a week. It is very beneficial. There will be a transformation after the period of practicing silence.

Love Always
mudra

On the destruction of a jar,

the space therein unites with all space.

In myself and Shiva I see no difference

when the mind is purified.
