I saw a man chasing the horizon;
Round and round they sped.
I was disturbed at this;
I accosted the man.
"It is futile," I said,
"You can never---"
"You lie," he cried,
And ran on.
What you are looking for is what is looking.
--St. Francis of Assisi
The breath is your first lesson in life--
and your last.
--Hazrat Inayat Khan
We are the flute, our music is all Thine,
We are the mountains, echoing only Thee...
--Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi
Direct knowledge does not require intellectual discourses. Since the Self is directly experienced
by everyone, they are not at all necessary. Everyone says "I am". Is there anything more to realize?
--Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi
