The Living Doubleness ~ Rumi


Originally uploaded by Contemplater

I ask my heart, Why do you keep looking
for the delights of love?

I hear the answer back, Why will you not
join me in this companionship?

This is the conversation of being
a human being, the living doubleness.

Cool and in motion like water,
placed and passionate like fire.

Subtle as wind, yet obvious
as a wineglass poured to the brim,
spilled over and drunk down
all at once for a toast.

Like rain, you make any image
more vivid. Like a mirror,
you can be trusted to hold beauty.

There are mean people who see only
meanness reflected in you,
but they are wrong.

You are pure soul
and made of ground.

You are eyeshadow,
and the kindness in eyelight.

A ruby from no telling which mine,
let yourself be set in a seal ring.

Lift the sword-discernment
that rules a thousand compassions.

Shams in the lovely shape of Shams,
spring source of invisible meaning.

Why Rumi?
