Kabir

  • “Just be available.
    This is such a great mercy that these things happen on their own.
    I don’t have to find Kabir. Kabir will find me.
    Chill.”

 

  • “Who is Kabir? A historical figure, a weaver, a body that died?
    Kabir is the essence from which all Kabirs are born.
    A thousand Kabirs come and go, and Kabir remains as always.”

 

  • “Being Hindu has as much to do with having a caste as being has to do with having a body.
    Hinduism is Kabir and Ashtavakra, not caste.”

 

  • “A person deserves to be your lover only if the person is saying that I am not going to become your goal. I am not going to become your objective. I will only become a fellow traveller, a means, a bridge. If you come to me then I will take you beyond me. I will not make you stay with me. I will not possess you. I will not make you stop at me. Instead, I will guide you beyond me. That is how the wise man decides on his lover, if it all it can be called a decision. Because in such matters, what happens is so spontaneous that it cannot really be called a decision. But what Kabir is enunciating to us is the basis of spontaneity. That basis is ‘The Beyond’.”

 

  • “Kabir offers so little to you because you are little. Kabir offers so little to you because what you think of as Kabir’s offering is just your own thinking.”
