... universe/self ...

Live the Self that fills the whole universe.

~Sawaki Roshi

The universe is in us in such a way ...
that everyone in the universe
is the universe.

~Nicholas of Cusa

The universe is a mountain
And you are its echo.


I saw light gleaming in the unseen.
I gazed at it continually,
until the time came when
I had wholly become that light.

~Abu'life-Hosain al-Nuri


  1. nice...i like that nicolas quote...i like the pic...think i might try straightening up the lady a bit more...

  2. Beautiful image, inspiring sentiments. "Thank you"
    Love Gail

  3. Love the photo and the quote by Rumi just speaks to me! Have a great week!

  4. The image grabbed me right away- love the almost pastel palette. You've paired the quotes so beautifully! The last quote speaks to me... gaze until you become that light... great stuff!

  5. How wonderful it would be if we could simply take these words and make them our own, live them.

  6. That image feels very springlike. I love that Rumi quotation.

  7. I like that final line especially. I've always been struck by how the people with the most money seem to feel like they need more, not matter how much they have.

  8. Oh this is beautifull !! Splendid!

  9. Wonderful thoughts and quotes. Have a great week.
