The Rumi Reflection Group in Chester finished our exploration of the translation Love's Ripening by Helminski and Rizwani this week, and we'll be moving on to Rumi: Bridge to the Soul, by Coleman Barks next week. The plan is to cycle through lots of different translations of Rumi so we can hear him in different voices. We're using Rumi as a starting point for exploring our own lives, so hopefully this will encourage us to hear the diversity in our own voices too.
From somewhere beyond myself
grace radiates into my heart.
Somewhere a Candle illumines this whole world.
Who am I? Just the candlestick holder.
