Not much happening on the forum today. So I thought I would share a poem from RUMI. I was reading his poetry this morning and was inspired to share. Hope everyone is having a good day. Trina

The Jar With The Dry Rim

The mind is an ocean… I and so many worlds
are rolling there, mysterious, dimly seen!
and our bodies? Our body is a cup, floating
on the ocean; soon it will fill, and sink…
Not even one bubble will show where it went down.

The spirit is so near that you can’t see it!
But reach for it…don’t be a jar
full of water, whose rim is always dry.
Don’t be the rider who gallops all night
and never sees the horse that is beneath him.

RUMI
Be still and know there is Peace.

Kabir says: "Student tell me, what is God? He is the breath inside the breath". from the poem Breath.

Trina,

Thank you for sharing. The forum gets slow like this. The weather is nicer here today so perhaps people are just outside in some areas. Keep posting. You make the forum uplifting.

Hugs, Karen...
