The moon shines in my body, but my blind
eyes cannot see it:

Moon Inside

The moon is within me, and so is the sun.
The unstuck drum of Eternity is sounded
with me: but my deaf
ears cannot hear it.

So long as man clamors for the I and the
Mine,
his works are as naught:

Me, Mine, Alone

When all the love of the I and the Mine is dead
then
the work of the lord is done.

For work has no other aim than the getting of knowledge:
When that comes, then work is put away.

flowers, fruit, wither

The flower blooms for the fruit: when the
fruit comes, the flower
withers,

The musk is in the deer, but it seeks it not
within itself: it
wanders in quest of grass.

~ Kabir
