Making the unknown known isn’t always a simple task. There’s times it’s so easy we make it difficult because we were told it was difficult. And there are other times the answer comes to us with so much ease, it feels divine.

The Unknown

This Rumi poem turns to a man and a woman in the sea:

In the midst of the ocean of love

The mind asks: Where are you?

I cry: I do not know! I do not know!

What path are you taking?
I do not know! I do not know!

You are being led by the madness of love
How can you function?
I do not know! I do not know!

You should be afraid
You could die!

The moon whispers:
It’s Ok not to know
You were borne with wings to soar
The real question is:
Why do you remain huddled in your cage?

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
