Rumi The Two Worlds

Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu Buddhist, Sufi, or zen. Not any religion or cultural system. I am not from the East or the West, not out of the ocean or up from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not composed of elements at all.

Rumi - OK, I'll Do It

Okay, I will do it: sing longer songs tonight because sometimes you're just so damn hard to please, and I guess I am still courting you, trying to get into your soul's knickers. What makes you like that--grouchy around the edges? What classrooms have you lounged in; what nonsense have you traded... Sign in to see full entry.

Hafiz - The Whole World Got Thick with God

The whole world just got thick Again with God. And everywhere I look Makes me feel very proud That all the objects and creatures Can remain looking So poised And acting so cool While keeping the Great Secret So well And not blissfully shout All day long the Reality "I Am -- I Am the Wine!"
