Awakened Souls

The Unconventional Mystic

If you have ever known an unconventional mystic,
you can rest assured you are one yourself.
What sets us apart is that we "recognize" each other
by the presence of the higher truth we sense.

Only Breath

by Jelaluddin Rumi

Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu

Buddhist, Sufi, or Zen.

Not any religion or cultural system.

I am not from the East or the West, not out of the ocean
or up from the ground,
not natural or ethereal,
nor composed of elements at all.

I do not exist,
I am not an entity in this world or the next,
I did not descend from Adam and Eve or any origin story.

My place is placeless, a trace of the traceless.
Neither body or soul.

I belong to the beloved,

have seen the two worlds as one
and that one call to and know,
first, last, outer, inner,

only that breath breathing human being.

Happy to see you visited,
