Out in the field

“Beyond our ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing,
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 sense any more.”

~ Rumi

  1. For all the times when I think I’m right, for all the meetings that have the undercurrent of conflict, I am hopeful that I can remember this quotation and move my heart and my mind to that field. Thanks, Bill.
