A story is like water
that you heat for your bath.
It takes messages between the fire
and your skin. It lets them meet,
and it cleans you!
Very few can sit down
in the middle of the fire itself
..we need intermediaries.
A feeling of fullness comes,
but usually it takes some bread
to bring it.
Beauty sorrounds us,
but usually we need to be walking
in a garden to know it.
The body itself is a screen
to shield and partially reveal
the light that’s blazing
inside your presence.
Water,stories, the body,
all the things we do, are mediums
that hide and show what’s hidden.
and enjoy this being washed
with a secret that we sometimes know,
and then not.
Rumi (1207-1273) “How the Unseen World Works”
