Inspirational Quote and Photo of the Week ~ Where is the Beloved?

yoga

In truth everything and everyone
Is a shadow of the Beloved,
And our seeking is His seeking
And our words are His words…
We search for Him here and there,
while looking right at Him.
Sitting by His side, we ask:
‘O Beloved, where is the Beloved?’

– Rumi

Quote/Photo of the Day ~ The Beloved

SurfingYesterday at dawn
my friend said, how long
will this unconsciousness go on?

You fill yourself with
the sharp pain of love
rather than its fulfillment

I said “but I can’t get to you!
You are the whole dark night,
And I am one single candle

My life is upside down
because of you!”

The friend replied, I am
your deepest being
Quit talking about wanting me!

I said, “Then what is this
restlessness?”

The friend:
Does a drop stay still in the ocean?

~ Rumi
