A river of joy runs through you


When you do things from your soul,
you feel a river of joy running through you

When actions come from (the self),
the feeling disappears.

Don’t let others lead you.
They may be blind,
or even worse, vultures.

Reach for the rope of God.
And what is that?
Letting go of self-will…

Rumi: We are Three, Coleman Barks, reworked by Dr William Emerson
