love thursday 11.03.11 ~ my own heart

(banana after a couple nights of frost...
greenhouse waiting to be placed)

My Beloved grows
right out of my own heart
how much more union can there be.


Rumi

Perhaps Rumi's truth here is the key to finding solutions to all that ails us. So many of us spend so much time out of touch with ourselves, how can we possibly find the union that we seek with others.

The mirror is only arm's length away. Do you see the Beloved in its frame?

I hope you do.

Sometimes I wonder what it felt like to be Rumi, whether it felt at all like reading his words feels.
