AS YOU BECOME EXISTENCE
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
