Because of the very nature OF duality, one must accept as factual duality's transient presence in order to truly comprehend its objective non-existence

I've only ever heard one of Rumi's poems: "Looking for Your Face", and I don't even know if that is the real title of it or which group of works it comes from. Regardless, it is a very moving and richly written poem that was shared with me by a friend who is a Sufi Muslim.

"And I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies; and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale." - Thomas Jefferson, from a Letter to John Taylor written in 1816

"Unfortunately, it is in the nature of man to tinker - even with immutable truth. Thus, we must be ever vigilant... - James Munford

Re: Favourite Work by Rumi - poll
I'm fond of Descent and then this one from "We Are Three":

I am part of the load
Not rightly balanced
I drop off in the grass,
like the old Cave-sleepers, to browse
wherever I fall.

For hundreds of thousands of years I have been dust-grains
floating and flying in the will of the air,
often forgetting ever being
in that state, but in sleep
I migrate back. I spring loose
from the four-branched, time -and-space cross,
this waiting room.

I walk into a huge pasture
I nurse the milk of millennia

Everyone does this in different ways.
Knowing that conscious decisions
and personal memory
are much too small a place to live,
every human being streams at night
into the loving nowhere, or during the day,
in some absorbing work.
