Walking quietly in the garden of Great Meeting as the sun sets ............
Only Breath by Rumi
Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu,
Buddhist , sufi, or zen. Not any religion
or cultural system. I am not from the East
or the West, not out of the ocean or up
from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not
composed of elements at all. I do not exist,
am not a entity in this world or the next,
did not descend from Adam and Eve or any
origin story. My place is placeless , a trace
of the traceless. Neither body or soul.
I belong to the beloved, have seen the two
worlds as one and that one call to and know,
first, last, outer, inner, only that
breath breathing human being.
Not this, nor that, not this, neti neti
Looking for One, it is not this, it is not that, la ilaha, la ilaha, there is no one to be found
amongst all this diversity, but there is one, ila allahu
