Ecstatic

Birdsong brings relief to my longing.

I'm just as ecstatic as they are, but with nothing to say!

Please, universal soul,

practice some song or something through me!

-Rumi



This lovely mystical poem is wonderful for springtime, so full of LIFE; and it is in tune with a living universe, an insight which is in harmony with the world's major spiritual traditions.


For so long science, and many of us, regarded the universe as inert matter and empty space. This is what we learned and why we felt free to exploit what was only "dead" matter. But now some scientists and many others are aligning with the wisdom of spiritual traditions and becoming aware that we need to open ourselves to the mystical and feel our communion with the living universe if we are to address our planetary crises.


How does the idea that we are alive in a living universe change our sense of self, our place in the cosmos and in the human family?


How does a living universe challenge behavior?


Let’s go outdoors today, hear birdsong, sense our priceless communion with a living universe, and allow the universal soul to sing ecstatic songs through us!
