centering myself

Tuesday, February 07, 2006

Why lay yourself on the torturer’s rack
of the past and future?
The mind that tries to shape
tomorrow beyond its capacities
will find no rest.
Be kind to yourself, dear- to our innocent follies.
Forget any sounds or touch you knew that did not help you dance.
You will come to see that all evolves us.
If you put your heart against the earth with me,
in serving every creature, our Beloved will enter
you from our sacred realm
and we will be, we will be
so happy. ~ rumi

That really hit home with me today. Thanks for this, thistlegirl.
