Two Kinds of Intelligence ~ Rumi

Illustration of electrical activity of the human heartThere are two kinds of intelligence: one acquired,
as a child in school memorizes facts and concepts
from books and from what the teacher says,
collecting information from the traditional sciences
as well as from the new sciences.

With such intelligence you rise in the world.
You get ranked ahead or behind others
in regard to your competence in retaining
information. You stroll with this intelligence
in and out of fields of knowledge, getting always more
marks on your preserving tablets.

There is another kind of tablet, one
already completed and preserved inside you.
A spring overflowing its springbox. A freshness
in the center of the chest. This other intelligence
does not turn yellow or stagnate. It’s fluid,
and it doesn’t move from outside to inside
through conduits of plumbing-learning.

This second knowing is a fountainhead
from within you, moving out.

Why Rumi?

The Monkey is Reaching ~ Hakuin

The monkey is reaching
For the moon in the water.
Until death overtakes him
He’ll never give up.

If he’d let go the branch and
Disappear in the deep pool,
The whole world would shine
With dazzling pureness ~ Hakuin

Why Rumi?

In profound spiritual poetry, Rumi (a 13th century poet who is still a top-seller in the U.S.) brilliantly blended together material and intangible worlds in expressions that resonate with many of us.
His poetry in particular speaks to our own brilliant center of creation and radiance, regardless of our individual religious affiliation or non-affiliation.
His poetry inspires us to view our world from another perspective. It gives us pause and allows us to access the depth of our inner world and divinity.
Heart-Centered-Strategy is a reflection of the balance between the spiritual and material; accessing the spiritual is a practice to remind us to stop and view all of our business actions from an inner, meditative vision. More about heart-centered-strategy

“Rumi’s place in the history of religions is as a bridge-between-faiths.  The story of his funeral in 1273 is well known. Representatives came from  every religion -Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus.  When questioned about this, they responded, “He deepens us wherever we are.”  Rumi lives in the heart, the core (he might call it friendship) of our impulse to praise, to worship, to explore the mystery of union.  Even his name is a bridge word.” Coleman Barks Rumi: Bridge to the Soul: Journeys into the Music and Silence of the Heart, HarperCollins, 2007.

So we began and will never cease ~Rumi

 

I stood before a silk worm one day. And that night my heart said to me,

“I can do things like that, I can spin skies, I can be woven into love that can bring warmth to people; I can be soft against a crying face, I can be wings that lift, and

I can travel on my thousand feet throughout the earth, my sacks filled with the sacred.”

And I replied to my heart, “Dear, can you really do all those things?”

And it just nodded “Yes”

in silence.

So we began and will never cease.
