There is something in us
That has nothing to do with night and day,
Diamonds which come from no earthly mine.
The sun is shining and the air is warm. It's March in Florida and truly, all is right in my world. When I saw this quote from Rumi, I wondered how could he know so deeply and express so clearly all that I experience.
Consider what is real. Let go of the body and the mind and move deeply into that diamond mine. Find that which is changeless. This might be such a small, rough, uncut stone that it is easy to pass it by. But there is something that strikes a chord and resonates in a way that there is no doubt.
Grace and joy appear to polish and shine the something within us that comes from no earthly mine. Quite amazing actually...
