The Cosmic Poetry Of Rumi - 12:30 p.m. Saturday 26/4

Recordings of Rumi's poems. Bring along your own favourites.

We will have a discussion on the reasons for Rumi's current popularity.

"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing

and rightdoing there is a field.

I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass

the world is too full to talk about."

    I loved the examples of Rumi's poetry that orientated ones awareness with the heart. It's like he entered his own heart and there he found god. What a gift! I knew he wasn't too far away. :-)

    Sorry I can't be there today. I hope you don't mind me contributing a poem by Hafiz, who lived about a hundred years after Rumi.

    "I used to live in a cramped house
    with confusion and pain.

    But then I met the Friend
    And started getting drunk
    And singing all night

    Confusion and pain
    Started acting nasty,
    Making threats,
    With talk like this,

    If you don't stop 'that'-
    All that fun-

    We're Leaving."

    Hi Stephan and fellow meditators,
    I would absolutely be there if I hadn't been keeping the hours of a cat over the last week and into today. Really look forward to being with you soon.
