The best act of worship is watchfulness of the moments.
That is, that the servant not look beyond his limit, and not
contemplate anything other than his Lord, and not associate
with anything other than his present moment.

- Abu Bakr Muhammad Al-Wasiti

The future ain’t what it used to be.

True happiness cannot be found in things that change and pass away. Pleasure and pain alternate inexorably. Happiness comes from the Self and can be found in the Self only. Find your real Self and all else will come with it.

When people talk about war
I vow with all beings
to raise my voice in the chorus
and speak of original peace.

quote

Everything is laid out for you.
Your path is straight ahead of you.
Sometimes it’s invisible but it’s there.
You may not know where it’s going,
but you have to follow that path.
It’s the path to the Creator.
It’s the only path there is.

- Chief Leon Shenandoah

quote

My heart has become capable of every form:
It is a pasture for gazelles
And a monastery for Christian monks,
And the pilgrim’s Ka’ba,
And the tablets of the Torah,
And the book of the Koran.

I follow the religion of Love:
Whatever way love’s camel takes,
That is my religion, my faith.

- Ibn Arabi

quote

There are a thousand flowers blossoming in spring,
The magical light of the full moon in autumn;
There is a breeze in summer,
And snow in winter;
And if vanities don’t hang in my mind,
I shall rejoice at any time and place.

- Wu Men

quote

Do not worry about anything ever,
For the grace of God is in every shape and form.

In each mirror, each moment
A new face reveals His beauty.

One in all, all in one.
If only this is realized, no more worry about your not being perfect!
