The Secret

We dance around in a ring and suppose;

But the Secret sits in the middle, and knows.

– Robert Frost



Others are revolted, I am unmoved.

Gripped by desires, I am unmoved.

Hearing the wisdom of sages, I am unmoved.

I move only in my own way.

– Lu Yu


It Is You Who Give the Life

We consider bibles and religions divine–
I do not say they are not divine,

I say they have all grown out of you,
and may grow out of you still,

It is not they who give the life,
it is you who give the life.

Leaves are no more shed from the trees,
or trees from the earth,
than they are shed out of you.

– Walt Whitman
