"Zero Circle" By Rumi

Be helpless, dumbfounded,Unable to say yes or no.Then a stretcher will come from grace to gather us up.
We are too dull-eyed to see that beauty.If we say we can, we’re lying.If we say No, we don’t see it,That No will behead us And shut tight our window onto spirit.
So let us rather not be sure of anything,Beside ourselves, and only that, so Miraculous beings come running to help.Crazed, lying in a zero circle, mute,We shall be saying finally,With tremendous eloquence, Lead us.When we have totally surrendered to that beauty,We shall be a mighty kindness.

What incredible timing. I posted this morning about a fork in the road and not knowing which way to go. Maybe I don't have to know right now. I really enjoy your blog and am so glad to have found you. Thank you for your kind words on mine. Looking forward to a long friendship in blogland. :)

Everything happens for a reason and recently, I keep on hearing the same message over and over in one day. Today's message was about quiet and clarity. Rumi's message (on your blog)on a personal note for me is about being quiet and listening for our messengers, for they are there indeed if we could only hear them. Thanks Cat for your generosity of spirit and sharing your gift of creativity!

Warmly,
Sherry
