Approach The Soul

 

 

Approach the soul as a wild thing

with soft words and gentle tones

slowly

with patience and stillness.

 

Approach the soul as a wild thing

only then begin to hear

 

perpetual silence

 

with sweet accompaniment:

the twang of the breath

the music of the breath.

 

Approach the soul as a wild thing

with soft words and gentle tones

slowly

with patience and stillness.

In a time of hurt and grief

Attachment-1

 

Whoever finds love                        by Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi


                                                                                                        (1207 – 1273)

                                                                  English version by Coleman Barks

Whoever finds love
beneath hurt and grief
disappears into emptiness
with a thousand new disguises

Peace is inside you, always

 

Approach The Soul

 

Approach the soul as a wild thing

with soft words and gentle tones

slowly

with patience and stillness.

 

Approach the soul as a wild thing

only then begin to hear

 

perpetual silence

 

with sweet accompaniment:

the twang of the breath

the music of the breath.

 

Approach the soul as a wild thing

with soft words and gentle tones

slowly

with patience and stillness.

Approach the soul

Approach the soul as a wild thing

with soft words and gentle tones

slowly

with patience and stillness.

 

Approach the soul as a wild thing

only then begin to hear

 

perpetual silence

 

with sweet accompaniment:

the twang of the breath

the music of the breath.

 

Approach the soul as a wild thing

with soft words and gentle tones

slowly

with patience and stillness.
