Day Ninety One – MAP to Love through RUMI on Valentine’s Day

posted by Melanie Lutz
Break open your personal self
to taste the story of the nutmeat soul.
These voices come from that rattling
against the outer shell.
The nut and the oil inside
have voices that can only be heard
with another kind of listening.
If it weren’t for the sweetness of the nut,
the inner talking, who would ever shake a walnut?
We listen to words
so we can silently
reach into the other.
Let the ear and mouth get quiet,
so this taste can come to the lip.
Too long we have been saying poetry,
talking discourses, explaining the mystery outloud.
Let us try a dumb experiment.

 

Rumi had it down, ‘explaining the mystery outloud’ allowing that inner expression to radiate outward and let it flow with the rich nourishment of source.

Take today (and every day) to enjoy the dumb experiment in being loving.  Take no prisoners in your efforts at being Love.

 

Enjoy.

Lots of Love,
Melanie
