“Look carefully around you and recognize the luminosity of souls. Sit beside those who draw you to that.”
“…with thankful attention… looking back…I can always tell which moments had taken on the restful luminosity. There is a certain stillness, or completion, about them.”
perceptions of middle age have their own luminosity.”
“I try to live in the luminosity of things.”
“Do not feel lonely, the entire universe is inside you.”
“There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the ground; there are a thousand ways to go home again.”
“There’s a voice that doesn’t use words.
“And don’t think the garden loses its ecstasy in winter.
It’s quiet, but the roots are down there riotous.”

“You are not a drop in the ocean,
you are the entire ocean in a drop.”
“Set your life on fire.

“When I am silent,
I fall into the place where everything is music.”
There is some kiss we want with
our whole lives, the touch of
spirit on the body. Seawater
begs the pearl to break its shell.
And the lily, how passionately
it needs some wild darling! At
night, I open the window and ask
the moon to come and press its
face against mine. Breathe into
me. Close the language-door and
open the love window. The moon
won’t use the door, only the window.
From Soul of Rumi

“We have fallen
into the place where
Everything is music”
“I wonder if anyone else has an ear so tuned and sharpened as I have, to detect the music, not of the spheres, but of earth, subtleties of major and minor chord that the wind strikes upon the tree branches. Have you ever heard the earth breath?”
“The earth has music for those who listen.”
Absorbed and immersed in the music, greens, life energy, breath of the earth’s longest day among 365. Solstice! A sweet celebration to breath into…
