Cry Out in Your Weakness

Brigade of Saviors

A dragon was pulling a bear into its terrible mouth.

A courageous man went and rescued the bear.  There are such helpers in the world, who rush to save anyone who cries out.  Like Mercy itself, they run toward the screaming.

And they can’t be bought off.  If you were to ask one of those, “Why did you come so quickly?” he or she would say, “Because I heard your helplessness.”

Where lowland is, that’s where water goes.  All medicine wants is pain to cure.

And don’t ask for just one mercy.  Let them flock in.  Let the sky open under your feet.  Take the cotton out of your ears, the cotton of consolations, so you can hear the sphere-music.

—Rumi

I am in awe and wonder by all of you who flocked in.  The sphere-music is beginning to play again.
