Drink All Your Passion

Starovoitova Nadiia


Drink All Your Passion

There is a community of the spirit.
Join it, and feel the delight
of walking in the noisy street,
and being the noise.

Drink all your passion,
and be a disgrace.

Close both eyes
to see with the Other Eye.

Open your hands,
if you want to be held.

Consider what you’ve been doing!
Why do you stay with such a mean-spirited
and dangerous partner?

For the security of having food, admit it!
Here’s a better arrangement: Give up this life,
and get a hundred new lives.

Sit down in this circle.

Quit acting like a wolf, and feel
the Shepard’s Love filling you.

At night, your Beloved wanders.
Don’t take pain-killers.

Tonight, no consolations.
And don’t eat.

Close your mouth against food.
Taste the Lover’s mouth in yours.

You moan, “But she left me. He left me.”
Twenty more will come.

Be empty of worrying.
Think of Who Created Thought!

~ Rumi

Live in the Moment

by Prema

What is the great poet Rumi presenting?

“There is a community of the spirit. Join it, and feel the delight of walking in the noisy street and being the noise. Drink all your passion, and be a disgrace. Close both eyes to see with the other eye.”

Your thoughts please?

Best Answer

Live in the moment, no, BE the moment, with all of the sights and sounds. Let passion lead the way, and don’t give a damn what others think of you. When you stop looking with the eyes and the mind, spirit will become your sight.

“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”
~ Thích Nhất Hạnh

“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.”
~ Thích Nhất Hạnh

“Many people are alive but don’t touch the miracle of being alive.”
~ Thích Nhất Hạnh

“To be loved means to be recognized as existing.”
~ Thích Nhất Hạnh

“Every thought you produce, anything you say, any action you do, it bears your signature.”
~ Thích Nhất Hạnh

“We have to continue to learn. We have to be open. And we have to be ready to release our knowledge in order to come to a higher understanding of reality.”
~ Thích Nhất Hạnh

“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child — our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”
~ Thích Nhất Hạnh
