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.

Introvert update: going places alone

Introvert update: going places alone allows me to meditate on the environment and how to interact with it, but without the extra complexity of my internal circle meshing with that space in impossibly complex ways. Good for introverts – can get acclimated. Maybe being out in the world alone is how to become a leader. Get good at life by engaging with the world head on and alone.
