Life's Prayer Continued...
It seems to me that this spiritual journey (which never ends) has been an effort to understand what it means to make two into one. This has become more evident as I have spent my time in the depths of Soto Zen and Contemplative Christianity. More and more the lines are fading and that field of which Rumi speaks is becoming a reality, at least cognitively but the experience is still Paul’s vision, “for now we see in a mirror dimly...”
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 doesn’t make any sense.
From Essential Rumi
