Lenten Moment

Here is a poem from Rumi, a 13th century Persian scholar, theologian, and mystic.   He is well known in spirituality circles for his poems, calling the reader to a transcendence of institution, into a deeper union with the Holy.

Here is a Rumi poem entitled “I’ll Meet You There”:

I’ll Meet You There
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing 
and right doing
 there is a field. 
I will 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.

By: Rumi
