The Same Delight

Grace Flows

LOTUS OF THE HEART

All is Welcome Here

Living in Love beyond Beliefs

In Love taking you into Herself,
you receive Love into yourself -
one ritual of Union,
not two.

* * *

The beggar and the rich man
are the same in the Eyes of Love.
Grace hugs
queen and prostitute, both with the same arms.
The sound of the temple bell and the sound of your footsteps
the same delight to the Beloved.

* * *

Do you think God needs your religion? You do, not God.
God wants you: You!
As long as you keep stretching over the ditch,
you are bound to continue the aching.
Listen to the pain, jump into the Stream.
For a moment
do not name
do not evaluate
appreciate.

* * *

Entering One
fear becomes Love, for you were born
Lover. It only takes a moment.
Why divide the world between wine and dregs?
Why not see the stars in the midday sky? God does!

* * *

There are worlds inside that one bubble of boiling water.
Everything pulsates with your own substance.
What is this talk of beautiful and ugly?
You would feel this, if you would get to know your own Heart -
can you stop talking long enough?

* * *

But, how can you make love with the Lover, with excuses like,
“I really want to, but I don’t have time”?
Lovers do not have time,
Lovers love.
You delay because
you are afraid to know yourself
your capacity to give and receive Love.

* * *

You are not afraid of the Lover,
as much as afraid of your own Dignity.
What a waste, trying to find time!
So, if you wish, go on and do your own thing,
while the Sun shines, patiently, waiting
for when you “find time” for delightful intercourse.

* * *

One day, a man complained, “I cannot see the Sun for that temple.”
The Christ said, “Then, burn it down! Here’s the match and gasoline.”

* * *

One day, the Friend heard a woman moan, “I am so lonely.”
He said, “Then, be quiet and kiss Me!”

* * *

Why fiddle with a penny ? -
a diamond is inviting, “Fiddle with Me, for a while!”

* * *

Follow your pining
to its Source.
If you want the Beloved in you,
quit running and open up.
The answer to your seeking is in
the seeking.
Quit seeking, Receive!

* * *

In God’s way:
Water creates the thirst.
If you are yearning for love,
a Lover is nearby.

* * *

Grace, right now, flows from the
Hidden Essence of every creature.
Drink It.
