“This is how a human being can change.
There’s a worm addicted to eating grape leaves.
Suddenly he wakes up, call it grace, whatever,
something wakes him, and he’s no longer a worm.
He’s the entire vineyard, and the orchard too,
the fruit, the trunks, a growing wisdom and joy
that doesn’t need to devour.”
Cease looking for flowers!
There blooms a garden in your own home.
While you look for trinkets,
The treasure house awaits in your own being.
“There is a light that shines beyond all things on earth,
beyond the highest, the very highest heavens.
This is the light that shines in your heart.”
