Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi – Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase each other
doesn’t make any sense.

— from The Essential Rumi, Translated by Coleman Barks

I
 never tire of this bit of Rumi's wisdom.
I always seem to need to hear it.
I know i've posted it before
I will almost surely do so again.

Some of you will be interested--
A few of you will be very interested
in the fact that Ivan Granger has CFS
I pray for all my friends who suffer from it.
