The Essence of the Soul


Beyond all ideas of right doing and wrong doing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,

The world is too full to talk about.

Even the phrase “each other”

doesn’t make any sense.


I love this passage from the works of Rumi. What do you think he means? I think he is talking about the “Not-knowing” mind; about being present in the moment without judgement. In those moments there is no right or wrong, true or false, you or me.

Rumi is forever speaking of the essence of the soul. He speaks of love often, but always as a reflection of the divine. His ability to describe the unutterable, indescribable Divine makes him one of the most passionate and profound poets in history.
