Be still and listen

 

“If you fall in love with Me, I will mess you up,
cultivate little, or I will ruin you.”

This is a line from Rumi’s poem “I will mess you up”.

Look at it, it is extremely beautiful and it explains in great detail what “Living the Truth” is all about. “Me” – that is God, Life, Consciousness – the One. To fall in love with the One means to have a realisation of our true Nature in such a profound way, that we can never forget. We come to the realisation that this is the only Truth there is – that everything is part of the One, nothing is in separation or division from the whole. Such a realisation throws everything out of control and puts our world upside down.

Everything we hold on to – will go. Everything we attach to – will fall away. Everything we think is solid or stable will begin to totter.  Everything we have learned, we know or think is unshakable, will unhinge.

Be still and listen. Not in books, not in anything on the outside, nothing that can be acquired, bought or achieved. Nothing you can get ever a hold of, and yet – it is here to inspire you, speak out of you and as the perennial wisdom.

Be still and listen.


About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
