Teach us

Vários livros ao mesmo tempo. Estava sentindo falta daqui. Aí num deles:

"Teach us to care and not to care. Teach us to sit still."

Versinho de Ash Wednesday, de T.S. Eliot.

Voltando, né?

Muito bom, desbravando o T.S. :p

Gostaria de sugerir um poeta para ti: Rumi.

Um pouco dele:

“In the driest whitest stretch
Of pain’s infinite desert
I lost my sanity
And found this rose.”

“Only let the moving waters calm down,
and the sun and moon will be reflected
on the surface of your being.”

"The day is for work.
The night for love. Don’t let someone
bewitch you. Some people sleep at night.

But not lovers. They sit in the dark
and talk to God"

“Your task is not to seek love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”


“I am amazed at the seeker of purity
who when it’s time to be polished
complains of rough handling.
Love is like a lawsuit:
to suffer harsh treatment is the evidence;
when you have no evidence, the lawsuit is lost.
Don’t grieve when the Judge demands your evidence;
kiss the snake so that you may gain the treasure.
That harshness isn’t toward you, O son,
but toward the harmful qualities within you.
When someone beats a rug,
the blows are not against the rug,
but against the dust in it.”
