Circle of Life – Barbara Taylor

Circle of Life – Barbara Taylor

Today’s reading is from Rumi, the 13th century mystic

Although you appear in earthly form, your essence is pure Consciousness.


You are the fearless guardian of Divine Light.


So come, return to the root of the root of your own soul.


When you lose all sense of self, the bonds of a thousand chains will vanish.


Lose yourself completely; return to the root of the root of your own soul.


You descended from Adam, by the pure Word of God, but you turned your sight to the empty show of this world.


Alas, how can you be satisfied with so little?


So come, return to the root of the root of your own soul.


Why are you so enchanted by this world when a mine of gold lies within you?


Open your eyes and come —


You were born from the rays of God’s Majesty when the stars were in their perfect place.


Soul of all souls, life of all life – you are That.


Seen and unseen, moving and unmoving – you are That.


The road that leads to the City is endless;


Go without head and feet and you’ll already be there.


What else could you be? – you are That.
