Im quite fond of his teachings as well as his poetry. Just thought id share one with you  :smile:

    A Tendency to Shine

    If you prefer smoke over fire
    then get up now and leave.
    For I do not intend to perfume
    your mind's clothing
    with more sooty knowledge.

    No, I have something else in mind.
    Today I hold a flame in my left hand
    and a sword in my right.
    There will be no damage control today.

    For God is in a mood
    to plunder your riches and
    fling you nakedly
    into such breathtaking poverty
    that all that will be left of you
    will be a tendency to shine.

    So don't just sit around this flame
    choking on your mind.
    For this is no campfire song
    to mindlessly mantra yourself to sleep with.

    Jump now into the space
    between thoughts
    and exit this dream
    before I burn the damn place down.
