#1050 When will you begin?

Be a lamp, a lifeboat, a ladder. Help someone's soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd.

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in silence.

Flow down and down in always
widening rings of being.

What in your life is calling you,
When all the noise is silenced,
The meetings adjourned...
The lists laid aside,
And the Wild Iris blooms
By itself
In the dark forest...
What still pulls on your soul?

Spirit, find your way, in seeking lowness like a stream.

And You? When will you begin that long journey into Yourself?

Quotes by Rumi

- To whom have you brought some healing?
- What hinders you from embracing love?
- How can you cultivate wider rings of being?
