Gazing at the Light ~ Rumi

 


lamp is on

Originally uploaded by marfis75

The lamps are different,
But the Light is the same
.

So many garish lamps in the dying brain’s lamp-show,
Forget about them.
Concentrate on the essence, concentrate on the Light.
In lucid bliss, calmly smoking off its own holy fire,
The Light streams towards you from all things,
All people, all possible permutations of good, evil, thought, passion.
The lamps are different,
but the Light is the same.
One matter, one energy, one Light, one Light-mind,
Endlessly emanating all things.
One turning and burning diamond,
One, one, one.
Ground yourself, strip yourself down,
To blind loving silence.
Stay there, until you see
You are gazing at the Light
With its own ageless eyes.

– Jalal-ud-Din Rumi
(Translated by Andrew Harvey from A Year of Rumi)

    One light
    Spanning waves
    Seeking in touch
    Collisions
    Of Unity
    Exploring amplitudes !
