You are What you Love

A Subtle Truth

If you want money more than anything,
you will be bought and sold.

If you have a greed for food,
you will become a loaf of bread.

This is a subtle truth.
Whatever you love, you are.

Muhammad and the Huge Eater

By by Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi
Translated by Coleman Barks

    Excerpt from "Delicious Laughter, Rambunctious Teaching Stories from the Mathnawi" by Coleman Barks. 1990 Paypop Books, 196 Westview Drive, Athens, GA 30606.

(Note: Husam was Rumi's much loved assistant. Rumi teases him.)

Husam demands that we begin Book V.
Ziya-Haqq, the Radiance of Truth,
                        Husamuddin,
Master to the Pure Masters,
if my human throat were not so narrow,
I would praise you as you should be praised,
in some language other than this word-language,
but a domestic fowl is not a falcon.
We must mix the varnish we have
and brush it on.

I'm not talking to materialists. When I mention Husam,
I speak only to those who know spiritual secrets.
Praise is simply drawing back the curtains
to let his qualities in.
                        The Sun,
of course, remains apart
from what I say.

What the sayer of Praise is really praising is himself, by saying implicitly, "My eyes are clear."

Likewise, someone who criticizes is criticizing
himself, saying implicitly, "I can't see very well
with my eyes so inflamed."

Don't ever feel sorry for someone
who wants to be the Sun, that other Sun,
the One that makes rotten things fresh.

And don't ever envy someone
who wants to be this world.

Husam is the Sun I mean.
He can't be understood with the mind, or said,
but we'll stumble and stagger trying to.
Just because you can't drink all that falls
doesn't mean you give up taking sips
of rain water. If the nut
of the mystery can't be held,
at least let me touch the shell.

Husam, refresh my words, your words.
My words are only a husk to your knowing,
an earth-atmosphere to your enormous spaces.

What I say is meant only to point to that, to You,
so that whoever ever hears these words will not grieve
that they never had a chance to look.

Your Presence draws me out from vanity
and imagination and opinion.

Awe is the salve
that will heal our eyes.

And keen, constant listening.
Stay out in the open like a date palm
lifting its arms. Don't bore mouse-holes
in the ground, arguing inside some
doctrinal labyrinth.

That intellectual warp and woof keeps you wrapped
in blindness. And four other characteristics
keep you from loving. The Qur'an calls them
four birds. Say Bismillah, and chop the heads
off those mischief birds.

The rooster of lust, the peacock of wanting
to be famous, the crow of ownership, and the duck
of urgency, kill them and revive them
in another form, changed and harmless.

There is a duck inside you.
Her bill is never still, searching through dry
and wet alike, like the robber in an empty house
cramming objects in his sack, pearls, chickpeas,
anything. Always thinking, "There's no time!
I won't get another chance!"

A True Person is more calm and deliberate.
He or she doesn't worry about interruptions.

But that duck is so afraid of missing out
that it's lost all generosity, and frighteningly expanded
its capacity to take in food.

A large group of unbelievers
once came to see Muhammad,
knowing he would feed them.

Muhammad told his Friends,
"Divide these guests among you and tend to them.
Since you are all filled with me,
it will be as though I am the host."

Each Friend of Muhammad chose a guest,
but there was one huge person left behind.
he sat in the entrance of the mosque
like thick dregs in a cup.

So Muhammad invited the man to his own household,
where the enormous son of a Ghuzz Turk ate everything,
the milk of seven goats and enough food
for eighteen people!

The others in the house were furious.
When the man went to bed, the maid slammed the door
behind him and chained it shut, out of meanness
and resentment. Around midnight, the man
felt several strong urges at once.

But the door! He works it
puts a blade through the crack. Nothing.
The urgency increases. The room contracts.
He falls back into a confused sleep and dreams
of a desolate place, since he himself is
such a desolate place.

So, dreaming he's by himself,
he squeezes out a huge amount,
and another huge amount.

But he soon becomes conscious enough
to know that the covers he gathers around him
are full of shit. He shakes with spasms of the shame
that usually keeps men from doing such things.

He thinks, "My sleep is worse than my being awake.
The waking is just full of food.
My sleep is all this."

Now he's crying, bitterly embarrassed,
Waiting for dawn and the noise of the door opening,
hoping that somehow he can get out
without anyone seeing him as he is.

I'll shorten it. The door opens. He's saved.
Muhammad comes at dawn. He opens the door
and becomes invisible so the man won't feel ashamed,
so he can escape and wash himself
and not have to face the door-opener.

Someone completely absorbed in Allah like Muhammad
can do this. Muhammad had seen all that went on
in the night, but he held back from letting the man out,
until all happened as it needed to happen.

Many actions which seem cruel
are from a deep Friendship.
Many demolitions are actually renovations.

Later, a meddlesome servant
brought Muhammad the bedclothes.
"Look what your guest has done!"

Muhammad smiles, himself a mercy given to all beings,
"Bring me a bucket of water."

Everyone jumps up, "No! Let us do this.
We live to serve you, and this is the kind of hand-work
we can do. Yours is the inner heart-work."

"I know that, but this is an extraordinary occasion."

A Voice inside him is saying, "There is great wisdom
in washing these bedclothes. Wash them."

Meanwhile, the man who soiled the covers and fled
is returning to Muhammad's house. He has left behind
an amulet that he always carried.

He enters and sees the Hands of God
washing his incredibly dirty linen.

He forgets the amulet. A great love suddenly enters him.
He tears his shirt open. He strikes his head
against the wall and the door. Blood
pours from his nose.

People come from other parts of the house.
He's shrieking, "Stay away!"
He hits his head, "I have no understanding!"
He prostrates himself before Muhammad.
You are the Whole. I am a despicable tiny,
meaningless piece. I can't look at You."
He's quiet and quivering with remorse.

Muhammad bends over and holds him and caresses him
and opens his inner knowing.

The cloud weeps, and then the garden sprouts.
The baby cries, and the mother's milk flows.
The Nurse of Creation has said, Let them cry a lot.

This rain-weeping and sun-burning twine together
to make us grow. Keep your intelligence white-hot
and your grief glistening, so your life will stay fresh.
Cry easily like a little child.

Let body-needs dwindle and soul-decisions increase.
Diminish what you give your physical self.
Your spiritual eye will begin to open.

When the body empties and stays empty,
God fills it with musk and mother-of pearl.
That way a man gives his dung and gets purity.

Listen to the Prophets, not to some adolescent boy.
The foundation and the walls of the spiritual life
are made of self denials and disciplines.

Stay with Friends who support you in these.
Talk with them about sacred texts,
and how you're doing, and how they're doing,
and keep your practices together.

      - Mathnawi, V, 1-149, 163, 167

Intimacy


frogmouse2.jpg Mouse and Frog picture by fastdarter
A mouse and a frog meet every morning on the riverbank.

They sit in a nook of the ground and talk. Each morning, the second they see each other, they open easily, telling stories and dreams and secrets, empty of any fear or suspicious holding back.

To watch, and listen to those two is to understand how, as it’s written, sometimes when two beings come together, Christ becomes visible.

The mouse starts laughing out a story he hasn’t thought of in five years, and the telling might take five years! There’s no blocking the speech flow-river-running-all-carrying momentum that true intimacy is. Bitterness doesn’t have a chance with those two.

The God-messenger, Khidr, touches a roasted fish. It leaps off the grill back into the water. Friend sits by Friend, and the tablets appear. They read the mysteries off each others foreheads.

But one day the mouse complains, “There are times when I want conversation and you’re out in the water, jumping around where you can’t hear me. We meet at this appointed time, but the text says, Lovers pray constantly. Once a day, once a week, five times an hour, is not enough. Fish like we are need the ocean around us!”

Do camel bells say, “Let’s meet back here Thursday night?” Ridiculous! They jingle together continuously, talking while the camel walks.

Do you pay regular visits to yourself? Don’t argue or answer rationally. Let us die, and dying, reply. ~ Rumi

Ya Devi Sarva Buteshu

"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase each other
doesn't make any sense." ~ Rumi

It's easy for you because you're rather innocent yourself, Gemini. This sing-along pop song captures the breezy good mood you'll want to wear into the New Year.

Bodhidharma 菩提達磨


Bodhidharma 菩提達磨, originally uploaded by shitao.



Bodhidharma faced a wall for nine years, not speaking for the entire time. He is said to have fallen asleep seven years into his nine years of wall-gazing, and becoming angry with himself, cut off his eyelids to prevent it from happening again. Legend has it that as his eyelids hit the floor the first tea plants sprang up; and thereafter tea would provide a stimulant to help keep students of Chán awake during meditation...


The Origin of Chan (Zen)—A Flower and a Smile 世尊拈花,迦葉微笑



One day on the Spiritual Mountain (a.k.a. Vulture Peak), an assembly gathered to hear the Buddha’s Dharma talk. However, on that occasion, Buddha simply held up a flower offered by the Brahma King and gazed at the assembly, without saying a word. No one understood the meaning except Mahakashyapa, who broke into a smile. Thereupon the Buddha said, “I have the true Eye of the Dharma, the profound Mind of Nirvana, the Reality transcending all forms; the supreme and subtle teaching, inexpressible by words and speech; this mind seal outside of scriptures, I now transmit to Mahakashyapa.” Mahakashyapa later became known as the first Patriarch of Zen.

This special teaching, the “mind seal”, the essence of Buddhism, may be characterized by these lines (教外別傳,不立文字,直指人心,見性成佛):

A special transmission outside the scriptures,

Not dependent upon words and speech;

Directly pointing at the mind,

See into one’s true nature and become a Buddha.

"The Fountain" ~video

You know it ain't easy
For these thoughts here to leave me
There's no words to describe it
In French or in English

Cause diamonds, they fade
And flowers, they bloom
And I'm telling you

These feelings won't go away
They've been knockin' me sideways
They've been knockin' me out lately
Whenever you come around me

These feelings won't go away
They've been knockin' me sideways
I keep thinking in a moment that
Time will take them away

But these feelings won't go away
These feelings won't go away

You know it ain't easy
For these thoughts here to leave me
There's no words to describe it
In French or in English

Cause diamonds, they fade
And flowers, they bloom
And I'm telling you

These feelings won't go away
They've been knockin' me sideways
They've been knockin' me out lately
Whenever you come around me

These feelings won't go away
They've been knockin' me sideways
I keep thinking in a moment that
Time will take them away

But these feelings won't go away
These feelings won't go away

Noble Prayer

I found the noble prayer of contentment in the heart. Resting in the presence of the morning fog that made its way into the valley and the bright sun shining through to reveal water droplets hanging off the fresh blades of green grass. It feels like an act of worship for being in the clear unfolding of the day. A day of new beginnings and old bones rooted to the dynamic ground of existence. An experience of the root plexus with no urgency but still in the spiritual passion for the brilliancy of constant renewal. It's like a prayer being answered with the peaceful present of being completely human. And it's not that it was really asked for it was just simply found in the ordinary.

Jane Awake

The opals hiding your lids
as you sleep, as you ride ponies
mysteriously, spring to bloom
like the blue flowers of autumn

each nine o'clock. And curls
tumble languorously towards
the yawning rubber band, tan,
your hand pressing all that

riotous black sleep into
the quiet form of daylight
and its sunny disregard for
the luminous volutions, oh!

and the budding waltzes
we swoop through in nights.
Before dawn you roar with
your eyes shut, unsmiling,

your volcanic flesh hides
everything from the watchman,
and the tendrils of dreams
strangle policemen running by

too slowly to escape you,
the racing vertiginous waves
of your murmuring need. But
he is day's guardian saint

that policeman, and leaning
from your open window you ask
him what to dress to wear and
to comb your hair modestly,

for that is now your mode.
Only by chance tripping on stairs
do you repeat the dance, and
then, in the perfect variety of

subdued, impeccably disguised,
white black pink blue saffron
and golden ambiance, do we find
the nightly savage, in a trance.

Destiny Rules

"Destiny Rules"

Maybe we were together in another life
Maybe we are together in a parallel universe
Maybe our paths are not supposed to cross twice
Maybe your arms are not supposed to go around me

I hear about you now and then
I wonder where you are and how you feel
Sometimes I walk by and I look up to your balcony
Just to make sure that you were real
Just to make sure that I can still feel you

When I see you again,
As I always do
It appears to me that
Destiny rules
And the spirits are ruthless with the paths they choose
It's not being together,
It's just following the rules
No one's a fool...

Six weeks in a foreign country, how the time flew
I didn't speak the language, but somehow I knew
That that would be the only time that we could be alone and foolish
We said we'd never come home

When I see you again,
As I always do
It appears to me that
Destiny rules
And the spirits are ruthless with the paths they choose
It's not being together,
It's just following the rules
No one's a fool...

I like the coastal cities, I like the lights
I like the way the city blends into the ocean at night
It's like living on a working river; the coastline is glittering
Like a diamond snake in a black sky

When I see you again,
As I always do
It appears to me that
Destiny rules
And the spirits are ruthless with the paths they choose
It's not being together,
It's just following the rules
No one's a fool...

Just following the rules... no one's a fool
Just following the rules... no one's a fool
Just following the rules... no one's a fool
No one's a fool...

Deeper Understanding

A Year With Rumi by Coleman Barks
Consider What Choices

You wreck my shop and my house
and now my heart, but how can I run
from what gives me life?

I am weary of personal worrying,
in love with the art of madness.

Tear open my shame and show the mystery.
How much longer do I have to fret
with self-restraint and fear?

Friend, this is how it is.
We are fringe sewn inside
the lining of a robe.

Soon we will be loosened,
the binding threads torn out.

The beloved is a lion.
We are the lame deer in his paws.
Consider what choices we have.

Traveling through the dawn of day
You're always on my mind
I can't stay away

I'd forgotten about you
Then you turned up again
I always knew
We were meant to be more than friends

When you're near
It's just as plain as it can be
I'm wild about you, gal
You ought to be a fool about me

Can't explain
The sources of this hidden pain
You burned your way into my heart
You got the key to my brain

The Illusionist (2006) -



A Year With Rumi by Coleman Barks

Walnuts

Philosophers have said that we love music
because it resembles the sphere-sounds of union.

We have been part of a harmony before,
so these moments of treble and bass
keep our remembering fresh.

Hearing the sound, we gather strength.
Love kindles with melody. Music feeds a lover
composure, and provides form for the imagination.
Music breathes on personal fire and makes it keener.

The waterhole is deep. A thirsty man climbs
a walnut tree growing next to the pool
and drops walnuts in one by one.

He listens carefully to the sound
as they hit and watches the bubbles.

A more rational man gives advice. You will regret
doing this. You are so far from the water
that by the time you get down to gather walnuts,
the water will have carried them away.

He replies, I am not here for walnuts.
I want the music they make when they hit.

A guy who likes to smile at the sky
Sometimes I'm crazy

A social-economic, a common melancholic

Birds of a Feather



Eastern Screech Owls (Otus asio) work the night shift. They generally hunt from dusk to dawn or until their bellies are full. Their prey includes just about every living thing smaller than them, including bugs, worms, mice, moles, songbirds, small fish and crayfish. They often hunt from a perch in wooded, urban or suburban areas, althought they might hover over an area before swopping down for prey, or they might capture insects in midflight
.


One of their common calls sounds like a small horse whinnying. It's a eerie sound at night. Screech owls also trill, hoot and bark. Males call in a lower pitch than females.

Screech owls pair together for life, but if they lose a mate they may bond with another. Researchers report that a male screech owl might philander with a second female. Their "first mate" often responds by evicting the other female, laying eggs in her nest and incubating both clutches.

Screech owls can be gray or rusty colored. Like many owls, they are stocky and round-headed, but Eastern screech owls are small, usually less than 10 inches long. Unlike other small owls, screech owls have prominent ear tufts.

Although considered harmless, screech owls aggressively protect their nest. in an interesting turnabout, screech owls eat starlings, but starlings sometimes oust screech owls from their nest.

Little Wing

Well shes walking through the clouds
With a circus mind thats running round
Butterflies and zebras
And moonbeams and fairy tales
Thats all she ever thinks about
Riding with the wind.

When Im sad, she comes to me
With a thousand smiles, she gives to me free
Its alright she says its alright
Take anything you want from me, anything
Anything.

Fly on little wing,
Yeah yeah, yeah, little wing

NEH III


Until innocence is restored.
cathartic exploration
polishes my heart.



Adversity is such a teacher. She has so many optional faces, sorrow and misery go right along with it. I lost my innocence at the very tender age of seven and have struggled to make sense of something that had no map to trace its coming and goings. I'm ok with all of that now and have moved on to face other issues in my exploration, so I understand that what has been broken can never really be restored to its original state.

Cathartic exploration evokes extreme change in my emotions, resulting in a cleansing, or polishing in my heart. I'm not sure all of this makes perfect sense to me or to anyone else reading this open post. Just by a shear act of will I believe we can transcend some of the more gross emotional baggage that we bring into a new relationship. Taking a good long honest look at these issues as they arise can manifest some very undesirable behaviors.

I don't wish to drag my past into my present, but apparently it isn't something you can just swish away like so much dust that has been building up on the furniture.

Any-who I still think the moon may have had a play in it so i'm sticking to that thesis until things become clearer.

Love from a loving heart,

Larry

Love letter

I...

adore you.

I cherish you.

I am devoted to you.



I'm kinda like holding my breath and i set here this morning and type out the words to you. I find this so personal and relish the thought of you reading it as i type.

This may be better written on paper but the emphasis with the little buzzers and bells is kinda a nice little touch.

I am learning just like you to be more open and optimistic in how i project my intention so this little letter goes a long way in opening the little closed box.

Even though it's safe to hide my heart away where it may never be hurt I am finished with that part of my life. I am looking to live the dream i have so will chance putting it out here where it can get flamed or squished like a bug.

I wish I could tell you all the things that run around in my head but really have no idea on how to do that..

This letter will never be complete until i finally have a chance to hold you in my arms and smell your hair and your skin. Then i will be able to convey in words just how much i miss those things when we are not together.

I have a very vivid imagination but it only goes so far in the knowing.

I'm going to post this now and sign off with.

Love from a loving heart,

Larry

This is in Response to the Questions and Reflections for July 26, 2008:

Love is a Battlefield

Ageless


Is the world a beautiful garden, there's lots to consider, making a nice garden, natural and designed nice to combine, I like Capability Brown's work, eyecatcher's, Japanese gardens, bamboo, serenity, peace, harmony natural but, the best part is doing it, I started young my first garden was a battle field, the back garden, i did all the battles, with the plastic soldiers, all the nations, I had the knights in armor too, the crusades and castles, 1066, cowboys and Indian's, I made the landscape, what I wanted it to be...it's all an adventure, I made roads, and depots for all the tanks, I liked the jeeps the best, beeches and beech landers, the grand canyon, pearl harbor, I love my soldiers and the garden, Ive been in a billion gardens and they were great experiences, but, my first playground was the best, the potential to manipulate the landscape is incredible. I committed my first crime at 5 gardening, I had a 3 wheeler bike with a bucket on the back and I took it to the school on the weekend and stole the sand from the sandpit, used as above. Public and private spaces.
