time out, she calls
i am taking a little time out, stepping out of blogworld for a while.
here is my heart for all of you... i'll leave it here on the page and will get it back when i return. just so you know that i will come back.
at healing meditation today, bob gave us some poems. i know i am proving myself a hypocrite by going on about poems lately. let's just agree to call me complicated and a mass of contradictions. it's part of my attraction.
this one's from rumi and it speaks to me. this is where i am coming from today and it's a place i want to be at more often. he wrote it in the twelfth century so he was no modern-day guru. which is just as well.
Conventional knowledge is death
to our souls, and it is not really ours.
We must become ignorant
of what we've been taught,
and be, instead, bewildered.
Run from what's profitable and comfortable.
If you drink those liquers you'll spill
the springwater of your real life.
Live where you fear to live.
Destroy your reputation.
I have tried planning
long enough. From now on,
I'll be mad.
