it’s all about the love (and a little Rumi) …

sea of light

“The heart is nothing but the Sea of Light …” ~ Rumi

Today I am thinking it’s all about the love … or rather, I am feeling that. Feeling that it is all about the love. Because it’s not about thinking. Not about the head. It’s about the heart. What we feel. What we know in our heart.

That sounds simple, maybe. But it is important.

Rumi, talking about the heart …

The deliciousness of milk and honey is the reflection of the pure heart:
from that heart the sweetness of every sweet thing is derived.
The heart is the substance, and the world the accident:
how should the heart’s shadow be the object of the heart’s desire?
Is that pure heart the heart that is enamored of riches or power,
or is submissive to this black earth and water of the body,
or to vain fancies it worships in the darkness for the sake of fame?
The heart is nothing but the Sea of Light:
is the heart the place of vision of God–and then blind?

~ Mevlâna Jalâluddîn Rumi

We get caught up in the mechanisms of our mental processes. Thoughts, ideas, worries. Notions. They are all distractions that take us away from what we deeply feel, deeply know.

It’s all about settling into the heart. Being in that place. Finding the love and being there.

That’s what I mean when I say its all about the love. And today that feels important.
