Rumi: A Mine of Rubies

| 0 Comments

Looks like my plans re a certain poem are going to continue to be subject to revision. As some of the listeners know, I have yet to read the follow on to the poem "Who Am I?," which was read on Apr 26th ... and that follow on poem will still need to wait some more ... because typically I let either my inner voice lead me to the poem of the day or I let my hands wander and pick one ... invariably I discover a new gem .... so here is "A Mine of Rubies."

Today's Rumi poem "A Mine Of Rubies" is fromRumi, In the Arms of The Beloved, Translations by Jonathan Star.

We are usually taught that disease and acculturation either took out, or caused the blending in, of Native Americans, and that the “true” Indians have been “lost.”  Not so, says professor Michael Wilcox of Stanford University’s Anthropology Department in his new book, The Pueblo Revolt. That revolt of 1680, famous to New Mexicans as the most successful revolt by indigenous populations of any in US history, had far more to do with brutality, slavery, and forced extermination of Native religions than with those more neutral causes. Here is the history of the colonization of the West revisited by a scholar who is himself a descendant of Yuma Indians.

In the end, Self Discovery or Self Realization, is really a game ... it is the simplest of games yet it is the most challenging of games ...the challenge lies in accepting the simplicity that truly no doing or understanding is required to resolve this issue.

The Corporations are coming!

This was a talk delivered by Craig Barnes at the discussion group "Journey" in Santa Fe, New Mexico on May 16, 2010. Please click here to get an audio podcast of this talk (slightly modified from this text).

...

Let us see this morning if we can stitch together some pattern out of the patchwork of our troubles.  We are sometimes so beset with sound bites and trends, polls and policies, instant failures and unexpected successes that we dare not piece together any suggested place for ourselves in history. But, we might ask, is it not the work of people like you and me in every age to seek out and name the connections between things, to take some view of the valleys from--what we hope might be--the mountain top?  Is that not what Journey wants to do every Sunday?

The corporate rights doctrine that has come to dominate American politics and led to this year’s Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court has led at last to the need to amend the US Constitution, according to John Bonifaz of FreeSpeechforPeople.org. The whys, wherefores, precedents and possibilities of that amendment are discussed by a lawyer from the front lines.

With this episode #6, we continue our journey of  ... explorations in Consciousness, ... Silence, ... Self Realization, ... Self Discovery, ... The Mystery ...

Today's question is " How do we resolve the seeker's dilemma given that spiritual practice is not essential?"

As usual, my answer is quite simple: Silence ... and if one is not predisposed to Silence then Self Inquiry.

So let's take each answer and explore it a little bit further.

Drop out rates in high schools in Santa Fe, New Mexico, are consistently above 50%. Urban schools around the country are similarly troubled and at the same time budget deficits are leading school administrations to try to increase efficiencies by consolidating schools, making class rooms larger.  Fred Nathan of Think New Mexico and Lee Lewin and Will Barnes of the Santa Fe Girls School discuss the great advantages of small schools and the need to resist the trend to larger and larger factories of education.
