joy & other nuances

When I run after what I think I want,

my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety;

if I sit in my own place of patience,

what I need flows to me, and without pain.

From this I understand that

what I want also wants me,

is looking for me and attracting me.

There is a great secret here

for anyone who can grasp it.

~Rumi

from fire to ice and back again…..like many moons….

inquiry for today~ notice cycles…..every detail….

missing what I do not know

I will cut adrift—

I will sit on pavements and drink coffee—

I will dream;

I will take my mind out of its iron cage and let it swim—

this fine October.

~Virginia Woolf
