Qualities for a full life


Rumi’s advice for us if we want to fully take part in the dance this year. Courage to make the first step will always be a good idea….

There’s courage involved if you want

to become truth.  There is a broken-

open place in a lover.  Where are

those qualities of bravery and sharp

compassion in this group?  What’s the

use of old and frozen thought?  I want

a howling hurt.  This is not a treasury

where gold is stored; this is for copper.

We alchemists look for talent that

can heat up and change.  Lukewarm

won’t do. Halfhearted holding back,

well-enough getting by?  Not here.
