These are some poems I read recently that I wanted to share, Happy Friday
I died from minerality and became vegetable;
And from vegetativeness I died and became animal.
I died from animality and became human.
Then why fear disappearance through death?
Next time I shall die
Bring forth wings and feathers like angels;
After than, soaring higher than angels-
What you cannont image
I shall be that.
To completely trust in God is to be like a child who knows deeply that even if he does not call for the mother, the mother is totally aware of his condition and is looking after him.
Happy are those whose own faults preoccupy them too much to think of the faults of others.
You will not be a mystic until you are like the earth-both the righteous and sinner tread upon it-and until you are like the clouds-they shade all things-and until you are like the rain-it waters all things, whether it loves them or not.
Avoid greed, for greed in itself is poverty.
Whenever God loves a devotee, He subjects him to ordeals. Should he endure patiently, God singles him out; should he be content, God purifies him.
