The unendurable

is the beginning of the curve of joy.

Djuna Barnes

I maintain that faith is a pathless land,

and you can approach it by any path whatsoever,

by any religion, by any sect.

Jiddhu Krishnamurti

Faith is the bird that sings

When the dawn is still dark.

Rabindranath Tagore

The Way is long

let us go together.

The Way is difficult

let us help each other.

The Way is joyful

let us share it.

The Way is ours alone

let us go in love.

The Way grows before us

let us begin.

Zen Invocation

For years I sought the Many in the One,

I thought to find lost waves and broken rays,

The rainbow's faded colours in the sun--

The dawns and twilights of forgotten days.

But now I seek the One in every form,

Scorning no vision that a dewdrop holds,

The gentle Light that shines behind the storm,

The Dream that many a twilight hour enfolds.

Eva Gore-Booth

All suffering prepares the soul for vision.

Martin Buber

A person is not a thing or a process,

But an opening through which the absolute manifests.

Martin Heidegger

I live my life in widening circles

that reach out across the world

I may not complete this last one

but I give myself to it.

I circle around God, around the primordial tower.

I've been circling for thousands of years

and I still don't know:  am I a falcon,

a storm, or a great song?
