"My place is placeless, my trace is traceless,
no body, no soul, I am from the soul of souls.
I have chased out duality, lived the two worlds as one."
          -- Rumi

This popped up just as i needed it!!

Read two translations of the entire poem and Ivan Granger's commentary behind the link.

The Tao Is Tao (147)

                                                            147

                                          Turning toward emptiness
                                                 to excaoe reality
                                  is turning away from your true self.
                          Losing yourself in reality to escape emptiness
                                       is falling prey to an illusion.
                  Like a drowning man clinging to  an imaginary branch
                                 you will surely perish in the flood.

                                                                                  -- Jos Srabbert

Via Negativa And Non-Duality

If  you look closely
you will not find a thing.
Existence is an illusion;
emptiness is real.
Yet existence and emptiness
are
identical.

-- Jos Stabbert.

Via Negativa

                                                                             139

                                                                Men craving holiness
                                                                        use words
                                                        to create images of their gods,
                                                                      and confuse
                                                                            faith
                                                                            with
                                                                        their pride
                                                              in their own inventions.
                                                                  The Taoist sage
                                                                    shuns words
                                                                            and
                                                                    trusts silence,
                                                                knowung full well
                                                 the Tao is beyond the reach of concepts.

                                                                                                 -- Jos Stabbert.

"....And then I feel the sun itself
as it blazes over the hills,
like a million flowers on fire --
clearly I'm not needed,
yet I feel myself turning
into something of inexplicable value...
