Be melting snow

Lo, I am with you always , means when you look for God, God is in the look of your eyes, in the thought of looking, nearer to you than to yourself, or things that have happened to you. There’s no need to go outside. Be melting snow. Wash yourself of yourself. – Rumi, from The Enlightened Heart by Stephen Mitchell

Writer. In the summers, I live and work in the incredible state of Alaska, in the bush community of McCarthy; I pass the winters in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. I'm working on a memoir-based nonfiction book on the American Dream. I blog, quite frequently, and I also have a novel in process, set in Alaska.

    Rumi says things in a way that no one else can. I have found deep appreciation in his poetry. Thanks for these words – beautiful.

      Yes. The great poet can condense a universe of truth into a few words. A gift for which we can all be deeply grateful.
