Look What Happens…

Look
what happens to the scale
when love holds
it.
It stops working.

Kabir (c.1440-1518), cited in The (US-based) Episcopal Church’s Daily Prayer for All Seasons (New York: Church Publishing, 2014), text: p. 93; note: p. 161.

Daily Prayer for All Seasons features an eclectic and attractive collection of materials for “Meditation” within its pattern of daily prayer. Kabir—a fifteenth-century Indian Sufi, whose writings are incorporated into Sikh scripture, the Guru Granth Sahib—is included.
