there is a field...

"Out beyond ideas of
right doing and wrong doing,
there is a field.
I'll meet you there."

~ Rumi

I'll meet you there. No judgment. No rules. No black or white. Just a place where minds are opened wide and the ability to understand and accept people and ideas outside of our box is natural and welcomed. A place where we all take time to tap into our intellect and think before we react, love before we hate and accept before we judge.

There is a field. I'll meet you there...

This is one of my all time defining quotes. When I first heard it years ago, it spoke to the deepest part of my soul. It matched the longing I feel I was just born with, and its the calling of my heart. That Field is part of my mythology... calling to me, to all who would come. I love that you posted this. And I love the many of us who come and gather here in this bloggie world we have created. Its just another corner of that field...

Sending you much love sweetie,

here is the truly strange thing, I posted my poem and then came over here to see what you had put up. The poem on the page opposite of the one I chose was the one, and I almost put it instead. spooky, but still beautiful.

Ah, what an idea! If onl there was such a place. But I'm afraid that maybe that field has been paved over and a Wallmart built in it!

I have to giggle-that often ZI come and read a post and then come back to read it again and then leave a comment-then sometimes I forget to come back right away:)

This poem is beautiful and it was really nice to meet you there over the phone yesterday my sweet.

If I've been to your blog before, it must have been too long ago. Clicked a link at Michelle's and am delighted with all I'm finding here. So glad you survived that karate accident.

There is so little to say in response to such a far reaching poem, except to delight in the notion that so many people resonate to it's meaning. As Rumi would most likely say, it is not a good poem or a bad one, it is just a poem that offers to open a door into the realm of unconditional acceptance of all that life offers us. That field is always instantly available to us all. It is a human tendency to go there with someone, but the power of Rumi's message is that we can go there alone. Love is not dependent upon a recipient.
