Rumi: "How could a zephyr ride an ass?"


Found this bit of a Rumi poem.  It's really beautiful...

Essential RumiJesus sat humbly on the back of an ass, my child!
How could a zephyr ride an ass?
Spirit, find your way, in seeking lowness like a stream.
Reason, tread the path of selflessness into eternity. 
Remember God so much that you are forgotten.
Let the caller and the called disappear;
be lost in the Call.



May we be lost in the Call.
