“If I Sit In My Own Place…”


“When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of distress and anxiety; if I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain.  From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me…  There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.” ~Rumi


“Shadow and Light Source Both”


“…Don’t try to put out fire by throwing on more fire. Don’t wash a wound with blood.

No matter how fast you run, your shadow keeps up. Sometimes it’s in front. Only full overhead sun diminishes your shadow. But that shadow has been serving you.

What hurts you, blesses you. Darkness is your candle. Your boundaries are your quest…

You must have shadow and light source both. Listen, and lay your head under the tree of awe…” ~Rumi



“My weathered heart, fluent in death. My power lies in my ability to undo, wipe away, remove. Like death, I disjoin, I withdraw — and I do this with divine intention. I let go only of that which does not serve me: that is my strength, not my cowardice.”
~Segovia Amil
