Don’t Go Back To Sleep

Sunrise, The Backwaters of Kerala, India. March 2011.
Dawn, The Backwaters of Kerala, India. March 2011.

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.

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back-and-forth across the doorsill where the two worlds touch. The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.
-Rumi
