When you really look for me, you will see me instantly—

you will find me in the tiniest house of time.

–Kabir

” One day Nasruddin , working as a boatman , embarked a well known
scholar on his boat .
They started to talk while crossing the river .
The scholar boasted about his great grammatical knowledge and started
to correct the way Nasruddin spoke .
He asked : “Do you know how to spell CAMEL ” ? Nasruddin ansewered : ”
No . I don’t .” And the scholar said : ” So you lost half of your
life ” .
But it happened that the river was turbulent and the boat started to
sink .Nasruddin than asked the scholar : ” Do you know how to swim ?
He answered : No . I don’t .” So you lost all of your life , said
Nasruddin , cause we are sinking, bye ,bye .”

Let me be transformed into that body of light, radiating the psychic and physical vitality that arises from a willing conformity to the laws of creation, the compassion to love all that is produced by those laws, ands the wisdom to understand both the nature and the higher purpose governing the cosmic Law, that I may make my creative contribution to that higher purpose which will fill my own life with meaningfulness while transmuting it into an instrument of divine revelation.

–Leonora Leet (Renewing the covenant, Kabbalistic Guide to Jewish Spirituality)

 

……………………………………………………

 

People who desire to know God;

who ascend to God on the ladder of thought;

they choose their paths among the host of twinkling stars;

they leave the earth and write a letter of divorce to her;

they shake off her yoke and the earth is considered impure,

she and all her pleasantries;

their mind leads them to heaven without a ladder

where the glory of the eternal Lord is seen in the palace they build

Cambridge Genizah manuscript T-S H15.95
