Keep Walking — Rumi


Thanks Rumi. And all of your 13th century wondering, Persian poet.

Thanks Meg Wheatley, for sharing this Rumi passage. And thanks Meg for all of your 21st century fellow wondering and wandering.

Keep walking, though there’s no place to get to.
Don’t try to see through the distances.
That’s not for human beings.
Move within, but don’t move the way fear makes you move.
Today, like every other day, we wake up empty and frightened.
Don’t open the door to the study and begin reading.
Take down a musical instrument.
Let the beauty we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.

Jellaludin Rumi
