" Live out of your imagination

not your history "

The Sight of a Soul

September 8th, 2017
One of the marvels of the world
is the sight of a soul sitting in prison
with the key in its hand.
Covered with dust,
with a cleansing waterfall an inch away.
A young man rolls from side to side,
though the bed is comfortable
and a pillow holds his head.
He has a living master, yet he wants more,
and there is more.
If a prisoner had not lived outside,
he would not detest the dungeon.
Desiring knows there is a satisfaction
beyond this. Straying maps the path.
A secret freedom opens
through a crevice you can barely see.
The awareness a wine drinker wants
cannot be tasted in wine, but that failure
brings his deep thirst closer.
~ Rumi

  1. That is very deep, and I can relate to that on behalf of others as well as myself in earlier years. I think the more times one reads that, the further will be the insight. Thank you for all the wisdom you send us. Love and Blessings, Margaret.
