A Community of the Spirit (Rumi)

There is a community of the spirit.
Join it, and feel the delight
of walking in the noisy street
and being the noise.

Drink all your passion,
and be a disgrace.

Close both eyes
to see with the other eye.

Open your hands,
if you want to be held.

Sit down in the circle.

Quit acting like a wolf, and feel
the shepard's love filling you.

At night, your beloved wanders.
Don't accept consolations.

Close your mouth against food.
Taste the lover's mouth in yours.

You moan, "She left me." "He left me."
Twenty more will come.

Be empty of worrying.
Think of who created thought!

Why do you stay in prison
when the door is so wide open?

Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in silence.

Flow down and down in always
widening rings of being.

I LOVE IT! Your site is marvelous...It is cheerful....sensuous...filled with delights. I 'm sorry that I didn't see too many responses tho. Don't feel bad...I gave up waiting for comments on my site. haha It has been up for seven years and the joy I get is thinking someone's day is a little better because of my efforts. I know mine has been since I found yours. Congratulations....Kes
