“Love never sleeps, nor even rests,
nor stays for long with those that do.
Love is language that cannot be said,
or heard.” ~Rumi

“You can hold back from
suffering of the world,
you have permission to do so,
and it is in accordance
with your nature,
but perhaps this very holding back
is the one suffering
you could have avoided” ~ Franz Kafka

“I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope,
for hope would be hope for the wrong thing.
And wait without love. For love would be love,
of the wrong thing.
Yet there is faith.
But the faith and the hope and the love, are all in the waiting.
And the darkness shall be the light
and the stillness the dancing.” ~ T.S. Elliot

Satcitananda – Sat (Truth), Cit (Mind), and Ananda (Bliss). Truth that dissolves mind so we can experience great bliss.
