“living inside”




Your existence and your nonexistence
are entirely that.
What makes you happy, what makes you cry,
all this is the friend.
But your eyes do not see the beauty.
Otherwise, you would realize that,
head to foot, you are living inside
the one you ask about.

Excerpt From: Barks, Coleman. “Rumi: Soul Fury.” HarperCollinsPublishers. iBooks.  (emphases in original).

  1. Thanks so much Jen for the text and for the wonderful photos! In these uncertain times, more than ever we have to know, cultivate, and develop our ‘inside’. Thanks much! 🙂
