I swear ~ Rumi

Heart shaped moon reflected in oceanLet go of your worries

and be completely clear-hearted,

like the face of a mirror

that contains no images.

If you want a clear mirror,

behold yourself

and see the shameless truth,

which the mirror reflects.

If metal can be polished

to a mirror-like finish,

what polishing might the mirror

of the heart require?

Between the mirror and the heart

is this single difference:

the heart conceals secrets,

while the mirror does not.

    What are the secrets of the heart?

      what do you think – is it different for each of us?

        I think it has to do with the depths of forgiveness and acceptance…which I’m learning (very slowly) is quite bottomless. I seem to have an infinite capacity to love and forigve…it’s just a matter of getting through the walls and barriers and karmic baggage I’ve built and accumulated over this lifetime and perhaps others. I think in that way the secrets are different, but the depths of the human heart are something we all have in common.

        How does that sound? Am I close?

    We will have to ask Rumi if you are “close” :-), but my heart resonates with what you are saying! When I re-read the poem I got that being clear-hearted is the willingness to not hide anything and since love is what is deep in our hearts (sometimes covered or hidden by hurts or resentments) as you are saying, the willingness to love no matter what is coming from a clear heart space.
