The Audience Knows You

Bono

Very, very intimate...

Don’t imagine the audience doesn’t know who you really are – they really do… in a very intimate way. You live in their ear after all, just next door to the brain, down the hall to the bedroom of their heart. Especially if they sleep with earphones. Very, very intimate. They have heard the sound of your spirit snap and stretch. (Truth is, you probably don’t know who you are.)

~ Bono (via @ChristyRae75)

You are That

The snow brings me even closer...

The snow brings me even closer...

When it’s cold and raining,
you are more beautiful.

And the snow brings me
even closer to your lips.

The inner secret, that which was never born,
you are that freshness, and I am with you now.

I can’t explain the goings,
or the comings. You enter suddenly,

and I am nowhere again.
Inside the majesty.

~ Rumi

I keep falling in love with the fragrance of Rumi’s words over and over again… Simply be still, keep quiet and listen to the love-truth of awake emptiness. Enjoy!

With love you don’t bargain. There, the choice is not yours. Love is a mirror, it reflects only your essence, if you have the courage to look in its face.

~ Rumi
