Rumi: Scarcity Scared Silly

I am your moon and your moonlight too
I am your flower garden and your water too
I have come all this way, eager for you
Without shoes or shawl
I want you to laugh
To kill all your worries
To love you
To nourish you.
  -- Rumi

Today's guidance from The Rumi Card Book:  
Category:  Warning ... If a tree could only walk, he would never have to fear being chopped down.  Keep always changing and growing.

From the book:  "One of the essential features of a real seeker's life is to start humbly listening to the warnings--inner and outer--that the universe will always be trying to give to him or her.  This takes true discrimination, what Jesus called "the wisdom of the Serpent," detachment from our own plans, and a constant willingness to listen to the often quiet and obvious instructions of the Divine."


  1. The videos for these pieces are always so interesting in terms of imagery and style and interpretation, which leaves me thinking about Rumi's words in new ways.

  2. I agree with Maureen -- though I'm not sure if it was my computer or the actual video -- this one was really hard to 'see' as the images were pixelated....
