Something opens our wings.
Something makes boredom and hurt disappear.
Someone fills the cup in front of us.
We taste only sacredness.
~ Rumi, Persian Poet
What is that “something” that can do these things?
Making a difficult decision about your job, a relationship, a financial matter, your health, or some other personal issue. That can do it.
Being aware of small wonders—how easily children forgive, the rewarding companionship of a dog or cat, winter’s barren beauty, the amazing healing in laughter, the nurturing forces in a an affectionate touch. These can too.
Who is the “someone” the poet writes about? A lover. A parent. A child. A best friend. A spiritual presence. A musician. An actor. An author. A teacher. A mentor.
Open your life today to all the good influences around you. Something, someone, waits to kiss you with grace, to embrace you in the glory that empowers and transforms.
