Welding

“The arrow that is shot should penetrate so deeply
that even the feathers do not show.
Hug the body of the Lord so tightly
that the bones must be crushed to crumble.
Weld to the divine until the very welding disappears.”
~ Akka Mahadevi

The Innermost Light

“The innermost light, 
shining peacefully 
and timelessly 
in the heart, 
is the real Guru. 
All others merely show the way.”

Beauty in Essence

Without experiencing the essence there is no beauty. 
Beauty is not merely in the outward things 
or in inward thoughts, feelings and ideas; 
there is beauty beyond this thought and feeling. 
It’s this essence that is beauty.

~ J. Krishnamurti
