Rumi Moment of the Week

Souurce: Osho Zen Tarot

There is a thread of truth that runs through the legacies left by Rumi and Osho. On the outside there are numerous differences, illusions really; the core of their teaching compliments the other like two rivers meeting to converge into the ocean. I’ve been studying these two, side by side, for a little while now but I’m nowhere near ready to explain myself further.

For now, let us consider our place in the world — particularly: places and people, beliefs and habits, of which we can begin to let go. Now is as good a time as any to turn your back to something that does not feed your soul, that does not grow you, that keeps you seemingly stuck. This is what the figure in the Tarot card has done and this is what Rumi often urges us to do.

Doing as others told me, I was Blind.

Coming when others called me, I was Lost.

Then I left everyone, myself as well.

Then I found Everyone, Myself as well.

~Rumi

 

May all beings in all directions be free.
