Into the Sky

If you wish your misery to end,
seek also to lose your wisdom - 

the wisdom born of human illusion,
that which lacks the light of God's overflowing grace.
The wisdom of this world increases doubt; 
the wisdom of Faith releases you into the sky.

- Rumi, 
Mathnawi, II: 3200-3203, from Rumi: Daylight, posted to Sunlight 

Some days the gratitude is just so strong, it's palpable. Some days it's a struggle to even feel a trace. But always the wisdom of faith releases you into that vast open spaciousness!
