My Soul Upward
Your love lifts my soul from the body to the sky
And you lift me up out of the two worlds.
I want your sun to reach my raindrops,
So your heat can raise my soul upward like a cloud. ~Rumi
Love is from the infinite, and will remain until eternity. The seeker of love escapes the chains of birth and death. Tomorrow, when resurrection comes, The heart that is not in love will fail the test.
Let the lover be disgraceful, crazy, absentminded. Someone sober will worry about things going badly. Let the lover be.
When your chest is free of your limiting ego, Then you will see the ageless Beloved. You cannot see yourself without a mirror; Look at the Beloved, He is the brightest mirror
Your love lifts my soul from the body to the sky And you lift me up out of the two worlds. I want your sun to reach my raindrops, So your heat can raise my soul upward like a cloud.
In love, aside from sipping the wine of timelessness, nothing else exists. There is no reason for living except for giving one’s life. I said, “First i know you, then i die”. He said, “For the one who knows Me, there is no dying”.
~From the Times of India – Sacred Space: Eternal Love
“When your chest is free of your limiting ego” reminded me of my wonderful friend Sarah‘s comment yesterday. Here is what she wrote – “It’s funny, as I read the Deng Ming-Dao quote I felt something very different . I felt that that within our consciousness there was no room for ego; that we are all part of a greater whole. We all revolve around the central light. Yet somehow, your understanding led back to a similar place from a completely different angle.”
Great point Sarah. We are all part of a greater whole. And when we are most connected, connected to source, to our soul, then we are free to feel the wonder of being part of the whole. Here is to sipping wine of timelessness with the feeling that nothing else exists.
