You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens

– “Do not feel lonely, the entire universe is inside you.”

“If the foot of the trees were not tied to earth, they would be  pursuing me. For I have blossomed so much, I am the envy of the  gardens.” 

“You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean, in a drop.”

“Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.”

“Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.”

“There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the ground; there are a thousand ways to go home again.”

“Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.”

“Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.”

“Would you become a pilgrim on the road of love? The first condition is that you make yourself humble as dust and ashes.”
