Fasting | approaching the fire of hunger

Dakini's Cave Art Fire, Dakini Lynn MarlowIf your mind
and stomach
burn with
the fire of hunger,
it will be like
a heavenly song
for your heart.

In each moment
that fire rages,
it will burn away
a hundred veils
and carry you
a thousand steps
towards your goal.

- Jalaluddin Rumi

It is written: Man Shall Not Live by Bread Alone but by Every Mystery That Comes Through the Divine-Breath.

- Jesus Christ, Gospel of Matthew, Luke

One cannot being to perceive the subtle levels of reality without first quieting the grosser vibrations of the outside world. Everyday reality is so striking that one has to make a conscious effort to downplay it in order to see the other reality that lies behind it.

- Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan
