09:59 am - Inspired by Rumi

 

Nothing has really changed. 

Rumi says, "Today, like every other day, we wake up empty and alone.  Don't go to the library and take down a book.  Let the beauty you love, be what you do.  Let the beauty you love be what you do."

So.  Today, like every other day, we go about our daily round.  Like every other day, we make our simple, heartfelt prayers.  We reach out across the space between bodies--be that 5 inches or 5000 miles, and touch another's spirit.  We offer blessing.  We vibrate as the clear sounding bells we are, bringing discord into bright resonance.  Like every other day we make love, weep tears, belly laugh, cook food, feed the children and animals.  Like every other day we remember our core, our divinity, our integrity and stand tall in the knowing we are Human-Wild-Divine.   Like every other day we commune with our gods, ancestors, the spirits of the land.  Like every other day, we enter the ecstatic through whatever practice we engage.

Do not allow others to define you.  No matter who you are, what you believe.  Whether your work is done in full public view or behind closed doors.  Whether it is whispered ear to ear, written on the page or spoken aloud to the bustling masses.  Define your work and do it.  "Let the beauty you love be what you do."  And, let the beauty you love, be who you are.  That beauty is never wrong.  That beauty is Truth.
