Daily Wisdom-isms: Rumi

From “The Community of the Spirit”

Why do you stay in prison

When the door is so wide open?

Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking

Live in silence.

Flow down and down in always

Widening rings of being.


We live in a world that has lost its sense of wonder. Even when presented with the miraculous or fantastic, people deny the possibility because their eyes have been closed by a technological self-absorption. In this “real” world, devoid of wonder, people wander aimlessly in search of constant stimulation to quiet the call of the Void that has opened up in their hearts. This mad decent into zealous Scientism is not a good thing—a step in the direction of progress—like so many of its prophets would have us believe. It is a slide into madness—into another Dark Age. But this time it won’t be a Dark Age of Knowledge, but of the Spirit.

Life IS wondrous. The Cosmos IS full of miracles. There ARE other worlds and realms to explore. Allowing ourselves these moments of awe loosens the chains of our perception, they allow for us to experience through the heart and liberate ourselves from this reductionist prison of hyper-rationality that our jailors so desire to keep us trapped within and our hearts transfixed on.

  1. the dark ages of the spirit is a sad notion. Especially, because we’ve already moved in to it. I hope that others will this warning.

  2. Shifty can you hear me? Just a test
