Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right-doing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other” doesn’t make any sense.
What an amazing and inspiring perspective. I love this man!
I always thought concepts like ‘good or bad’, ‘right or wrong’, ‘positive and negative’ are all made up by human perspective. I am not saying that they don’t or shouldn’t exist. I am only saying that we came up with them and we are the ones who care about them.
I truly believe in that ‘field’ that Rumi talked about. The field that is beyond our imagination. Or all of our imagination all come together…
Here is another one of my favourites from Rumi:
Wear gratitude like a cloak and it will feed every corner of your life.
