Guidance -

What could be more beautiful than this?


God is pleased when your love realizes

it is part of something oceanic

and begins to move with the whole.

The larger love is more real,

being itself reality. These forms, a mix

of earth and water. Yes, you say,

but I already have a deep love.

Not deep or vast enough.

More like river water filled with silt.

Don't wash your hands there.

The love you must enter lives in the saints

and prophets. It is already the ocean, whereas

most loving still filters through countryside,

enjoying the passage...

As you become existence,

you will distribute creation,

lavishly blessing everybody.

Hold out your apron to catch what comes

with being in the presence.

- Mevlana Rumi
