from horizon to horizon,
how much it can fill your room,
depends on your window."

The Beloved.

"One went to the door of The Beloved and knock,
a voice answered; "who is there?"
he answered; 'it is I'.
the voice said;" There's no room for me and thee".
The door was shut.

After a year of solitude and deprivation,
the man returned to the door of the Beloved,
he knocked,
a voice from within asked; "who is there?"
the man said; 'it is Thou'.
The door was opened for him.

"If I adore You out of fear of Hell,
burn me in Hell!

If I adore You out of desire for Paradise,
lock me out of Paradise.

But If I adore You for Yourself alone,
do not deny to me Your Eternal Beauty."
"Repentance is a gift from God,
because no one could repent, unless God has
already accepted him and given him repentance."

Knocking a door.

"I have lived on the lip of insanity,
Wanting to know reasons,
Knocking on a door,
It opens,
I've been knocking from the inside."

"The thief left it behind,

The moon,

At my window."

(Ryokan, 1758-1831)

Flowers and garbage of life.

"The cause of suffering is desire.
We always desire flowers of life,
but reject the garbage of life,
We have to realize that flowers of today,
will be tomorrow's garbage,
And garbage are transformed to compost flowers.
Garbage of life can nourish the flowers of understanding,
the flowers of patience, peace, compassion,...
So, accept, accept, accept them both with smile.

(Gede Prama)

You are.......

" You are the trip I did not take,
You are the pearls I could not buy,
You are my blue Italian lake,
You are a piece of foreign sky,

You are my heart's unutered tune,
You are a candle in my night,
You are the flowers in my rains,
You are a bit of blue in my dark sky."

(Anne Campbell)

Finding faults in others...

"He who blame others,
still has a long time to go,
He who blame himself,
is halfway there,
He who blame no one has arrived."

Going home.

"When there's nowhere
that you have determined
to call your own,
Then no matter where you go,
you are always going home."
