Rumi: Whatever Circles Comes from the Center

Dance, when you're broken open.
Dance, if you've torn the bandage off.
Dance in the middle of the fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance, when you're perfectly free.
  -- Rumi

Today's guidance from The Rumi Card Book:
Category: Birth -- They offered many reasons why the rose is laughing. None of them knew the truth: its prayer has been granted by Spring. The true reason for the joy you feel is that it comes from Divine grace.
Category description from the book: "Each moment of our lives is potentially a new birth, if our hearts are open. Rumi always claimed that the wind of grace is always blowing from God, but that we are too rarely open to its fertile power. Nevertheless, through Divine generosity, signs of new birth constantly dance in and out of our lives, inviting us to hope, creativity, passion, and praise!
This beautiful reading is accompanied by a haunting reed flute.


  1. The sound of that flute adds so much to the video.

  2. How amazing! I wrote that exact phrase this morning in my blog as you were writing yours, "Divine grace".

    Lovely as always -- and yes, the flute is beautiful!!!!
