There’s A Moon Inside My Body – Kabir 

THE moon shines in my body, but my blind eyes cannot see it: 

The moon is within me, and so is the sun. 

The unstruck drum of Eternity is sounded within me; but my deaf ears cannot hear it. 
So long as man clamours for the I and the Mine, his works are as naught: 

When all love of the I and the Mine is dead, then the work of the Lord is done. 

For work has no other aim than the getting of knowledge: 

When that comes, then work is put away. 
The flower blooms for the fruit: when the fruit comes, the flower withers. 

The musk is in the deer, but it seeks it not within itself: it wanders in quest of grass.
