    The philosopher seeks.Truth through reason. But beyond reason, Truth is found in apprehension, in Poetry!

    Profound concept of non-duality reality for Love and Joy and Pain are part of the same root.

  • From ''Godless'', the movie (11/28/2017 1:59:00 AM)

    Tis a fearful thing to love
    To love what death can touch
    A fearful thing
    To love, to hope, to dream, be

    To be, and know, lose
    A thing for fools, ...this
    And a holy thing
    A holy thing, ... to love

    For your life is lived in me
    Your laugh once lifted me
    Your word was gift, me
    To remember this, brings painful joy

    Tis a human thing, -love
    A holy thing
    To love what death has touched

    Please explain to me why a poem concerning bin Laden's death and an anorexic cat lady are attributed to a man who lived in the 10th century. Yes... and why the photo?

    Very important scholar and poet, but this could not possibly be his portrait - it is a photo, and he was born in 1100s - almost certainly before glasses were invented.

Best Poem of Yehudah HaLevi

My Sweetheart's Dainty Lips

My sweetheart's dainty lips are red,
With ruby's crimson overspread;
Her teeth are like a string of pearls;
Down her neck her clustering curls
In ebony hue vie with the night,
And over her features dances light.

The twinkling stars enthroned above
Are sisters to my dearest love.
We men should count it joy complete
To lay our service at her feet.
But oh what rapture is her kiss!
A forecast 'tis of heavenly bliss!

Hymn For Atonement Day

Lord, Your humble servants hear,
Suppliant now before You,
Our Father, from Your children's plea
Turn not, we implore You!

Lord, Your people, sore oppressed,
From the depths implore You;
Our Father, let us not, this day,
Cry in vain before You.
