Body Intelligence

Rumi gets funky with ontology.  Funny to see this popping up on pg. 152 of Selected Poems:

Muhammed said, “Don’t theorize

about essence!” All speculations

are just more layers of covering.

Human beings love coverings!

They think the designs on the curtains

are what’s being concealed.

Observe the wonders as they occur around you.

Don’t claim them.  Feel the artistry

moving through, and be silent.

  1. Good advice. Difficult to follow.

  2. I love this one. Amazingly enough it isn’t that hard to follow. The reason it is hard to follow is because we have become too complicated. The coverings, the speculations, the curtains, are what are being created, and therefore observing the wonders behind the curtains become impossible. Open the curtain and the wonder will show itself 🙂
