Rig Veda X. 129
St Teresa da Avila
And if a man has no love,
He doth build a wall between him
And all the creatures of earth,
And there doth he dwell
In loneliness and pain
The Essene Book of Jesus
Where you find no love, put love, and you will find love
John of the Cross
And I have felt
A presence that disturbs me with joy
Of elevated thoughts; a sense sublime
Of something far more deeply interfused,
Whose dwellings is the light of setting suns,
And the round ocean and the living air,
And the blue sky, and in the mind of man:
A motion and a spirit, that impels all thinking things, all objects of all thoughts,
And roll through all things.
Wordsworth Tintern Abbey
I have reached the inner vision
and through Thy spirit in me
I have heard thy wondrous secret.
Through Thy mystic insight
To will up within me,
A fountain of power, pouring forth living waters
A flood of love and of all embracing wisdom
Like the splendour of Eternal Light
The Book of Hymns from the Dead Sea Scroll
In Thy wind – in Thy light-
How insignificant is everything else, how small are we – and how happy in that which alone is great.
Dag Hammarskjoeld Markings
In the world of Brahman there is a lake whose waters are like nectar and whoseoever tastes thereof is straightway drunk with joy; and besides tha the lake there is a tree which yields the juice of immortality
The spirit in thee is a river. Its sacred bathing place is contemplation; its water are truth; its banks are holiness; its waves are love. Go to that river for purification; thy soul cannot be made pure by mere water.
Whereupon, opening the centre of their skulls, he entered. The door by which he entered is called the door of bliss.
