Don’t go to the door of the study
And begin to read a book.
Instead, take down the dulcimer.
Let the beauty of what you love
Be what you do.
There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the earth.
It’s so interesting that this is the second time in the last hour that I read this poem; from your post and from an email sent to me. So good. Love Rumi.
Auspicious coincidence! Accept it as an expression of openness . . . and kiss the ground… in as many ways as you can.
It definitely had me thinking about it a lot last night.
Thank you for sharing and for your comment.
Ah, Rumi! What a great way to start my Sunday!
And did it make a difference in your day? Perhaps you will never know.
