[Sunlight] "The Creek and the Stars"



"The Creek and the Stars"

Spirit is so mixed with the visible world that giver,
gift, and beneficiary are

one thing. You are the grace raining down; the grace
is you. Creation is

a clear, flat, fast-moving creek, where qualities reflect.
Generations rush by, while

the stars stay still, without a splash. When you lose your
appetite for food, you'll

be given other nourishment. There's well-being that is not
bodily and beings

that live on fragrance. Don't worry about losing animal
energy. Go the way of love

and ask provisions. Love more the star region reflected,
less the moving medium.

-- Mathnawi VI: 3136-83;2816-25;2833-59;2867-70
Version by Coleman Barks
"The Soul of Rumi"
