These spiritual window-shoppers

These spiritual window-shoppers

by Rumi

These spiritual window-shoppers
These spiritual window-shoppers,
who idly ask, ‘How much is that?’ Oh, I’m just looking.
They handle a hundred items and put them down,
shadows with no capital.

What is spent is love and two eyes wet with weeping.
But these walk into a shop,
and their whole lives pass suddenly in that moment,
in that shop.

Where did you go? “Nowhere.”
What did you have to eat? “Nothing much.”

Even if you don’t know what you want,
buy something, to be part of the exchanging flow.

Start a huge, foolish project,
like Noah.

It makes absolutely no difference
what people think of you.

The Myth of Greatness

Mythological characters – accomplishments of many attributed to one person
Mirrored in modern day with CEOs – Steve jobs given credit for accomplishments of many brilliant people
Human mind wants to make one man great because of ego of self, holding out hope for one’s own individual greatness.
But the truth is we are great together, and only together.
