rumi quote

"Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing, there is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase 'each other' doesn't make any sense." – Rumi

I have a penchant for quotes by Rumi and this one is no exception. A master of words, Rumi strings words together into poetic revelations which embrace metaphor and elevates our thoughts beyond the prosaic to the heights of higher consciousness.

"Meet me in the field¬
and let our weary achy-ness take rest
upon the petals-
the blades of grass;
and as we stare out towards the heavens ... clouds shifting-
our consciousness will merge beyond that of the limited
and peace will permeate the life-drenched spaces
and we will be as one
in the field
beyond right and wrong
beyond ideas and language
beyond you ... beyond me-
meet me in the field."
