Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.
Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.
Let the waters settle and you will see the moon and the stars mirrored in your own being.
Be melting snow. Wash yourself of yourself.
The wound is the place where the Light enters you.
Only from the heart can you touch the sky.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.
Why do you stay in prison when the door is so wide open?
Your task is not to for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
