Begin

A poem by Rumi -

This is now. Now is
all there is. Don't wait for then;
strike the spark, light the fire.

Sit at the Beloved's table,
feast with gusto, drink your fill.

Then dance
the way branches
of jasmine and cypress
dance in a spring wind.

The green earth
is your cloth;
tailor your robe
with dignity and grace.

Thanks to meditator Art Dunbar for sumbitting this poem by the Persian Poet Rumi (1207-1273).

Very down to earth poem. I believe that one has to worry about one day at a time because tomorrow has its own problems.
