A voice in this wilderness….

 

Christian or Jew or Muslim I am not, not Hindu
Buddhist, sufi, or zen. Not any religion

Nor cultural system. I am not from the East
or the West, not out of the ocean or the North

From the ground, not natural or ethereal, not
composed of elements at all. I do not exist,

Am not an entity in this world, or in the next,
I did not descend from Adam and Eve or any

Origin story. My place is placeless, a trace
of the traceless. Neither body or soul am I

I belong to the beloved, have seen the two
worlds as one and that one call to and know,

First, last, outer, inner, only that
Breath breathing human being.

(Rumi)

 

…in this day and age…surely…wouldn’t this be the ideal way to be..? away from all dogma…untouchable by race, religion or creeds….
