He said much of what I said in my speech a month ago about how much we love to give, and how we often struggle to receive. He said we are good "love-givers". The question becomes, "Can we give love to ourselves, offer loving-kindness to ourselves?"
He led us through an experiment with our hands. We allowed the left hand to give contact and presence to the right hand.
Try it. Sit quietly now. Allow your left hand to touch your right. Explore. What is there? How do your hands give and receive?
Perhaps a moment, or two, or three, to pause before beginning, a pause to ask permission of the receiving hand, a pause to ask permission to explore.
How does each hand meet the other? Can we be there for ourselves as well as another? Play with this. It can be fun. Trust me. Trust Rumi! Peace! Exploration! Ease!!
"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek, and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." - Rumi
