Black Friday 2015

And I fear the nature of the probable backlash also, fear that if it manifests as hatred of Muslims as such or of refugees it will be fulfilling the terrorists’ script – to sow fear and loathing. Rather, consider Rumi:

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,

there is a field.  I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,

the world is too full to talk about.

Ideas, language, even the phrase each other

doesn’t make any sense.

From Essential Rumi
