We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

Surrender


O my friends,
What can you tell me of Love,
Whose pathways are filled with strangeness?
When you offer the Great One your love,
At first step your body is crushed.
Next be ready to offer your head as his seat.
Be ready to orbit his lamp like a moth giving into the light.
To live in the deer as she runs to the hunter's call.
In the patridge that swallows hot coals for the love of the moon,
In the fish, that kept from the sea, happily dies.
Like a bee trapped for life in the closing of the sweet flower.
Mira has offered herself to her Lord.
She says, "the single Lotus will swallow you whole."


Mirabai
