Beyond thinking and judging – beyond worry

Old Wheeler fields where I used to go parking as a youngster

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" - 
do not make any sense.


From The Essential Rumi, page 16. Translated by Coleman Barks.
