Dani BS: What Love Really Is (76* d) RE: BS: What Love Really Is 09 Aug 05


Went back and found the first piece that turned me on to Rumi:

"There is a community of the spirit.
Join it, and feel the delight
Of walking in the noisy street,
And BEING the noise.

Drink ALL your passion,
And be a disgrace.

Close both eyes
To see with the other eye.

Open your hands,
If you want to be held.

Sit down in this circle."


This is just a piece of a much, much more. It should also be said that much of Rumi's poetry was centered on passion for the Divine, though he said that when "he met the powerful wandering dervish, Shams of Tabriz, 'What I had thought of before as God, I met today in a human being.'"
