AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Growing.

van Gogh, Flowering Orchard, 1888


This is how a human being can change:
There's a worm addicted to eating grape leaves.
SUDDENLY, he wakes up...
Call it grace, whatever, 
something wakes him,
and he's no longer a worm.
He's the entire vineyard,
And the orchard too,
The fruit, the trunks, a
Growing wisdom and joy
That doesn't need to devour.

Rumi
