Quote for Today: Rumi


Infinite mercy flows continually
But you’re asleep and can’t see it.
The sleeper’s robe goes on drinking river water
While he frantically hunts mirages in dreams
And runs continually here and there shouting,
“There’ll be water further on, I know!”
It’s this false thinking that blocks him
From the path that leads to himself,
By always saying, “Further on!”
He’s become estranged from “here”:
Because of a false fantasy
He’s driven from reality.

    I’ve been reading Rumi for the past several weeks. A little each morning. Trying to find calm and centering in these difficult times. It helps. Hope you and your loved ones are staying well.

    Rumi is good for the soul! All is well here, although I know many people who have struggled with this virus. Most are better, but there has been too much loss. Hope things are going well in your neck of the woods and trusting that better times are on the way.
