As Rumi said, “The most living moment comes when those who love each other meet each other’s eyes and in what flows between them.
To see your face in a crowd of others, or alone on a frightening street, I weep for that.
Our tears improve the earth. The time you scolded me, your gratitude, your laughing, always your qualities increase the soul.
Seeing you is a wine that does not muddle or numb. We sit inside the cypress shadow where amazement and clear thought twine their slow growth into us.”
- Rumi’s “The Most Alive Moment,” p 189 in Coleman Barks 2001 The Soul of Rumi, Harper San Francisco, 425pp.
Share some very living moments with us at Dances of Universal Peace, Friday December 6, from 7-9 pm at the Frongillo residence, 3600 Beverly Drive, Columbia, SC 29204.
