It is important to expect nothing,

to take every experience,

including the negative ones,

as merely steps on the path,

and to proceed.

You cannot travel the path

until you have become the path itself.

What we call the beginning

is often the end.

And to make an end

is to make a beginning.

The end is where we start from.

The Soul Unfolds Itself

Say not, “I have found the truth,”
but rather, “I have found a truth.”
Say not, “I have found the path of the soul”
Say rather, “I have met the soul walking upon my path.”
For the soul walks upon all paths.
The soul walks not upon a line,
neither does it grow like a reed.
The soul unfolds itself,
like a lotus of countless petals.
