BEAUTY, THE DULCIMER AND THE BRIDGE



Today

I wake up empty and frightened.

Don’t go to the door of the study and read a book.

Instead

Take down the dulcimer.

Let the beauty of what you love

be what you do.

There are a thousand ways

To kneel

And kiss the ground.

Rumi




In the harvest of presence, the evanescent moment

Of seeing or hearing on the outside, what already lives far inside of us,

The eyes, the ears, the imagination

Suddenly become a bridge

Between the here and the there,

Between then and now,

Between the inside and outside.

Beauty

is the conversation

between what we think is happening outside in the world

and what is just about to occur

far inside us.

David Whyte




Go to the Truth beyond the mind.

Love is the Bridge.
