Thought for the New Year



“The days themselves are talking to you, saying,
Don’t look for blessings from us.
We are hoping that you will instead bless us,
so that our day will lose its dayness, this hour
its hourliness, so that an inanimate object here
might come to life, into the animation that leads to
a consciousness that grows into God.”

Barks, Coleman. “Rumi: Soul Fury. Rumi and Shams Tabriz on Friendship.”  pp. 243-244 of 429. iBooks. HarperCollinsPublishers.
