Love and Liminality

There is an irresistible sweetness to truth in humility. Once you begin to live your life out of its conviction, you are drawn even more fully into its grasp. You enter this relationship with all that is true, and good, and beautiful…out of your own freedom. The gifts that life gives, in a miriade of ways, are creativity and compassion. To understand that, is to know that your true purpose is to find meaning in life and to grow in the capacity to love everything as it is. This orders all other things. Love lies in the liminal spaces…between right and wrong, beautiful and ugly, sacred and profane, the place of non-judgement and true peace. My feet wander along the path to that place, and the view is breathtaking. “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.” –  Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi – 13th century
