This poem by Rumi caught my attention yesterday and is included in ‘Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow’ by Elizabeth Lesser
Today, like everyday, we wake up empty and frightened. Don’t open the door to the study and begin reading. Take down the dulcimer, Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kiss the ground.
Writing is my dulcimer, the way I welcome the day, the way I connect to my calm center and my spirituality. If softens me and in a comforting way, connects me with all the writers before, during and after me. Words and phrases are my muse my way of kissing the ground in devotion.
Enjoy your day my friend.
