Descriptions of the Sea

FLOAT, TRUST, ENJOY

Muhammad said no one looks back and regrets leaving this world. What’s regretted is how real we thought it was!

How much we worried about phenomena and how little we considered what moves through form.

“Why did I spend
my life denying death? Death is the key to truth!”

When you
hear lamenting like that, say,
not out loud, but
inwardly, “What moved you
then still moves you, the same
energy.

But you understand perfectly now that you are not
essentially a body, tissue, bone,
brain, and muscle.

Dissolve in the clear vision. Instead of
looking down at the six feet of
road immediately ahead,

look up: see both worlds,
the face of the king, the ocean
shaping and carrying you along.

You’ve heard
descriptions of that sea.

Now
float, trust, enjoy the motion.”

Rumi
