Fragrance Within


As fragrance is within the flower,
so the Lord is within you.
But as the musk deer searches for musk in the forest,
so you search for God outside yourself,
and find Him not.

– Kabir

Love weighs all alike

Buddha Statue

True love weighs all alike:
where true love reigns, no man seeks preferment,
no man steals from his well-beloved,
accounting all such things to be with himself which are with his friend.

– Juan Luis Vives (1492-1540)
