A hundred voices

March 12th, 2013 | Posted by heide fischer in News & Agenda - (0 Comments)

Why are you so afraid of silence,
silence is the root of everything.
If you spiral into its void,
a hundred voices will thunder messages you long to hear.

Rumi

Important things in life

March 5th, 2013 | Posted by heide fischer in News & Agenda - (0 Comments)

Let today be a Day
where you take nothing for granted.

For life is fleeting,
fragile and precious and
can change on a whim.

Say all the things
you really want to say
to your loved ones today.

~~Jackson Kiddard

As particle of dust by Rumi

This silence, this moment, every moment, if it’s genuinely inside you, brings what you need.
There’s nothing to believe. Only when I stopped believing in myself did I come into this beauty.
Sit quietly, and listen for a voice that will say, ‘Be more silent.’

Die and be quiet.
Quietness is the surest sign that you’ve died.
Your old life was a frantic running from silence.
Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in silence.

~ Rumi

 

 

The dream of life

February 13th, 2013 | Posted by heide fischer in News & Agenda - (0 Comments)

Dance, when you’re broken open.
Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off.
Dance in the middle of the fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance, when you’re perfectly free.

Rumi

 

 

Who am I?

“Those who do not have power over the story that dominates their lives — the power to retell it, rethink it, deconstruct it, joke about it, and change it as times change — truly are powerless, because they cannot think new thoughts.”

Salman Rushdie: One Thousand Days in a Balloon

Delight in another person is only a reflection of what you have suddenly remembered in yourself.
Rumi

 

Pureness

February 8th, 2013 | Posted by heide fischer in News & Agenda - (0 Comments)

There is no need for goals.
If you don’t have a goal,
You can just let yourself be in the now.
It’s only your mind thinking:
‘oh, there’s something I must achieve’,
that makes you discontented.
A goals requires control, a lack of spontaneity,
A lack of flow.
If there is control, how can there be joy?
It’s not possible.
The moment you control yourself,
Your joy is shut off – no joy, no happiness.
You may be angry at God
For making it that way,
But that’s how it is.

A.H. Almaas

 

Happiness is our true nature

Francis Lucille ‘Happiness is our true nature’

Be helpless, dumbfounded,
Unable to say yes or no.
Then a stretcher will come from grace
To gather us up.
We are too dull-eyed to see that beauty.
If we say we can, we´re lying.
If we say No, we don´t see it,
That No will behead us
And shut tight our window onto spirit.
So let us rather not be sure of anything,
Besides ourselves, and only that, so
Miraculous beings come running to help,
Crazed, lying in a zero circle, mute,
We shall be saying finally,
With tremendous eloquence, Lead us.
When we have totally surrendered to that beauty,
We shall be a mighty kindness
Rumi
