[Sunday Soul Food] Moving Water

Just for today… allow these moving and eloquent words by Rumi to uplift your spirit and soothe your Soul.

When  you do things from your soul, you feel a river
moving in you; a joy.
When actions come from another section, the feeling
Don’t let others lead you.  They may be blind
or, worse, vultures.
Reach for the rope of God.  And what is that?
Putting aside self-will.
Because of willfulness people sit in jail, the trapped bird’s
wings are tied; fish sizzle in the skillet.
The anger of police is willfulness.  You’ve seen a magistrate
inflict visible punishment.
Now see the invisible.
If you could leave your selfishness, you would see how you’ve
been torturing your soul.
We are born and live inside black water in a well.
How could we know what an open field of sunlight is?
Don’t insist on going where you think you want to go.
Ask the way to the spring.
Your living pieces will form a harmony.
There is a moving palace that floats in the air
with balconies and clear.
