This morning. Listening to: David Gray - A Clean Pair of Eyes.
Reading: Rumi. As always. Amazing to read his words and find them refreshed again and again.
(The following excerpts from the Essential Rumi, transl. Coleman Barks).
Don't ask questions about longing.
Look in my face.
Soul drunk, body ruined, these two
sit helpless in a wrecked wagon.
Neither knows how to fix it.
And my heart, I'd say it was more
like a donkey sunk in a mudhole,
struggling and miring deeper.
But listen to me: for one moment,
quit being sad. Hear blessings
dropping their blossoms
around you. God.
One more by David Gray: The Morning.
"Please be patient with your life."
