Forget Your Perfect Offering

Forget your perfect offering
there is a crack in everything
that’s how the light gets in.

Leonard Cohen

OK, so I ‘borrowed’ this quote from a friends website. And I am just so happy to do that. Thank you.

  1. Just like some phrases of the scriptures, these lyrics have entered my head, when needed. Gems of the Dharma everywhere! Thanks.

  2. Gems everywhere. Nuggets of wisdom can be found all around us. I have stored away ‘If you want to change the world you have to change yourself (first). Apparently these are not the correct words from Revolution, the Beatles song. But they are good anyway!

    Glad to see you posting here. Thanks.

  3. How wonderful to read this quote on your blog, RM Mugo. Some time ago I heard Leonard Cohen sing the song (I forgot the title) and I was struck by these very words and dotted them down immediately. They are so beautiful. Thank you.
