This moment

By Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi
(1207 – 1273)

English version by Coleman Barks

This moment
This LOVE
comes to rest in me,
many beings in one being
In one wheat-grain
a thousand sheaf stacks.

Inside the needle’s eye
a turning night of stars.
This moment —
This LOVE.

 

The heart of every human being requires peace. It doesn’t matter what their culture, religion or politics may be, everyone on the face of this earth wants to have peace.  Prem Rawat

The Dream of Peace

I’m glad there is a dream. Somewhere there is a dream that peace will happen. And someday it will. That’s why it comes about – because of the dream.  Prem Rawat

 

Inner Wakefulness  by Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi (1207 – 1273)

English version by Coleman Barks

 

This place is a dream
only a sleeper considers it real
then death comes like dawn
and you wake up laughing
at what you thought
was your grief

A man goes to sleep in the town
where he has always lived
and he dreams
he’s living in another town
in the dream he doesn’t remember
the town he’s sleeping in his bed in
he believes the reality
of the dream town
the world is that kind of sleep

Humankind is being led
along an evolving course,
through this migration
of intelligences
and though we seem
to be sleeping
there is an inner wakefulness,
that directs the dream
and that will eventually
startle us back
to the truth of
who we are

lift the veil by Kabir

lift the veil
that obscures
the heart

and there
you will find
what you are
looking for
