The Spell is Broken

...

om shanti om

The spell is broken
vivid beyond forgetting
What keeps this longing burning
Love only knows, I don’t

My Hiddenness Shines

Bokeh bubbles

hidden in plain sight...

You so subtle you can slip into my soul,
how would it be if you, for a time,
were living visibly here?

So hidden you’re hidden from hidden things,
you enter me, and my hiddenness
shines like a lantern.

~ Rumi

Don’t Try to Understand

Don’t try to understand! It’s enough if you do not misunderstand.

When the Ocean Surges

^ Who is the artist? I'd love to know!

^ Who is the artist? I'd love to know!

When the ocean surges,
don’t let me just hear it.
Let it splash inside my chest!

All your talk is worthless
when compared to
one whisper of the Beloved.


Bitter is sweet and
exhaustion, love.
No is a thousand yesses
in the code of emptiness.


~ Rumi

The Way Appears

Rabbit in the Moon

Rabbit in the Moon...

As you start on the way,
the way appears.
When you cease to be,
real being comes.

Happy full moon, everybody!

I’m Deteriorating

I'm deteriorating.

»I'm deteriorating.«

This is a still from one of the funniest scenes in the film Dil Kabaddi. Irrfan Khan’s character (the guy doing a headstand) is a married man who is just about to cheat on his wife. He panics, and in an attempt to calm himself down he desperately starts doing some pranayama and a couple of yoga asanas. His line »I’m deteriorating,« and how he delivers it… hehe, it absolutely cracks me up, every single time! :)

This is such a nonsense post if you haven’t seen the movie, haha… sorry about that :)

Apparent Fragmentation

an ocean in the drop...

an ocean in the drop...

Believing in a point of view
is where I separate into you.
Fragmented,
yet unchanged.

Precious Questions

om namah shivaya

om namah shivaya

There are questions so valuable, so precious, that they are better kept with you than exchanged for answers. Staying with such a question helps consciousness move out of the mind, shifts the focus of attention. Sometimes, this is all it takes to break the spell…

Your heart will recognise your question when it finds you. Honour it. Be patient, and don’t hold any expectations.

Just keep quiet.

Irrelevant, Actually

The ultimate freedom from the nonexistent ego is to see that it is actually irrelevant.
