Ramana Maharshi - Upadesa Saram, #10:
source in the Heart is, without doubt, true
when Maharshi was asked "what is the Heart referred to....?"

It is before any story, before any rhyme…
It fills me as I watch…
Thoughts come that try to explain it…
and change it…. and make it into something else…
but it is before any story, before any rhyme…
and It fills me as I watch…
It makes my eyes wide and humbles me…
Touched to the very core…
Is this the same feeling that has been here before?
Sadness moves like a soft breeze gracing this Heart…
Touching to be touched…
Opening more and more… as she goes…
Make room for this gentle one,
Do not push her away…
Let her in... let her have you...
let her break you apart...
a deep beauty beyond understanding will rise....
She comes to us from before any story, before any rhyme
And fills us as we watch…
Send her a kiss... for she is kissing you...

a poem by Hafiz
"How can I find God?"
The Beautiful Rascal
I really don't believe God is in there."
Why not try the Himilayas....
You could get naked
And pretend to be an exalted yogi
And eat bark and snow for forty years."
And you might think,
"Hey, Old Man,
Why don't you ... go shovel

We will meet together again at this tavern
Within the stillness of Stillness
you will be met there,
Then you will sing

without your mind and thought.
Only action and reaction; no doership, no ego.
This is the end of suffering.
When you really look at it,
you see that you have never done anything at all.
But out of Nothing you can do anything
without any reward for your activity.
All activity will be no activity,
and you will have no footprints left
to give you the next cycle of suffering.
Surrender to your Totality,
You have no limitations or notions of limitations,
no intentions or concepts,

the veil from the
Hearts become perfect rubies like
those from Badakshan.
There's no answer to any of this.
A poet breathes into a reed flute,
and the tip of every hair makes music.
Sham sails down clods of dirt

to whom does this come... to whom does this come...?
Truth appears when summoned,
rest in This... rest...
Eat those seeming wanted
They will turn to fresh sweet berries,
ripened just for you....

Surrender is the ego bowing down to it's Source.
know as "Papaji", from "This"

The lightning was flashing, the rain was pouring…
The thunder cracked and roared…
As I lay in my bed feeling the awe of this display...
and yet I could see
It was happening inside of me….
