You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.

– Psalm 139

We learn under the tutelage of wounds.

“But gradually we learn something very precious under the tutelage of these
wounds. We learn a compassion for others that replaces judging, self-loathing,
and the compulsion to find someone to blame. We learn a reverent joy before our
wounds that replaces the condemnation of and comparison of ourselves with others
that used to fuel our anxiety. We learn that the consummation of self-esteem is
self-forgetful abandonment to the Silence of God that gives birth to loving
service of all who struggle.”

THE RAYS OF THE RADIANT STAR …!!!

“These simple folk had run home,
fetched their wives and children,
and then followed the Ray of the Star
until they found the stable. –

How their eyes shone!
How ardently they wished
to be allowed to serve the Messiah!

They were filled with happiness.”

– Jeschua Ben Jahwe. –

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”

~ Bible(Psalm 91:1-2)

The people who have touched the unknowable

The unknowable can be experienced but not known.
It cannot be reduced to knowledge, although your heart can sing its song:….
.

The people who have touched the unknowable
gather together to share. The sharing is not verbal; it cannot be verbal.
The sharing is of their being, they pour their being into each other.
.

They dance together, they sing together,
they look into each other´s eyes, or they simply sit silently together.
That´s what was being done with Buddha, with Krishna, with Jesus in different
ways… The lovers of Krishna were dancing with him.
.

(Osho)
