Infinity Everywhere

When you do things from your soul, 
you feel a river moving in you, a joy.
When actions come from another section, 
the feeling disappears.  

We are born and live inside black water in a well.
How could we know what an open field of sunlight is? 
Don't insist on going where you think you want to go.  
Ask the way to the spring.  
Your living pieces will form a harmony.  

There is a moving palace that floats in the air with balconies 
and clear water flowing through, 
infinity everywhere, 
yet contained under a single tent.

~ RUMI ~

Do you ever feel it ~ that river of joy moving in you? Sometimes you just have to let go of all your preconceived notions and let "your living pieces form a harmony." Let your spirit float in the air, infinity everywhere...
