Those Who Don't Feel This Love - Rumi

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 01/08/2008 - 00:52
    Those who don't feel this love
    pulling them like a river
    those who don't drink dawn
    like a cup of spring water
    or take sunset like supper
    those who don't want to change
    let them sleep...

    This Love is beyond the study of theology
    that old trickery and hypocrisy
    If you want to improve your mind that way
    sleep on.

    I've given up on my brain
    I've torn the cloth to shreds
    and thrown it away.

    If you're not completely naked
    wrap your beautiful robe of words around you
    and sleep.

This verse belongs to no-one - Rumi

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 01/08/2008 - 00:50
    This verse belongs to no~one
    and comes from no place
    yet is written behind the eyes
    of every mortal face...

    This love is for no~one
    that is to be found
    neither in regions above
    or below this earthen ground.

    This peace is in the Heart
    of all that comes to be
    and goes flowing back
    to formless Eternity.

I Am and I Am Not - Rumi

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 01/08/2008 - 00:47
    I'm drenched
    in the flood
    which has yet to come

    I'm tied up
    in the prison
    which has yet to exist...

    Not having played
    the game of chess
    I'm already the checkmate

    Not having tasted
    a single cup of your wine
    I'm already drunk

    Not having entered
    the battlefield
    I'm already wounded and slain

    I no longer
    know the difference
    between image and reality

    Like the shadow
    I am
    And
    I am not

The Privileged Lovers - Rumi

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 01/08/2008 - 00:43
    The moon has become a dancer
    at this festival of love.
    This dance of light,
    This sacred blessing,
    This divine love,
    beckons us
    to a world beyond
    only lovers can see
    with their eyes of fiery passion.

    They are the chosen ones
    who have surrendered.
    Once they were particles of light
    now they are the radiant sun.

    They have left behind
    the world of deceitful games.
    They are the privileged lovers
    who create a new world
    with their eyes of fiery passion.

Now we are free (theme from Gladiator a subjective translation) Lisa Gerrard

Ever had a feeling that came from beyond the mind?
Whatever language we speak in, the invitation is always to transcend their meaning and feel them in the heart. Here is such a powerful expression of the heart called "Now we are Free" which we frequently play during the Openhand Course Work...

    Anol shalom
    Anol sheh lay konnud de ne um
    Flavum
    Nom de leesh
    Ham de nam um das...

Imagine - John Lennon

Submitted by OpenhandTeam on Wed, 12/26/2007 - 10:38
    "Imagine there's no heaven
    It's easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today...

    Imagine there's no countries
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace...

    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will be as one

The act of creating is the act of allowing

Submitted by OpenhandTeam on Wed, 04/19/2006 - 16:29
    "The act of creating is the act of allowing.
    In looking within, we see past the distortions of the ego...

    to find what is meant to be.
    When we know what is meant to be,
    we become as one with the divine will...
    the inner most longing of our highest self;
    we become an open channel and
    infinite potential is manifested through us,
    and through us, the infinite cycle is complete."
    Openhand
