Rumi and Clem Greenberg would have gotten along good

Like they used to say in my parents' synagogue back in Dallas, shabbat shalom, y'all.

Those with mirror-like hearts
do not depend of fragrance and color:
they behold Beauty in a moment.
They've cracked open the shell of knowledge
and raised the banner
of the eye of certainty.
Thought is gone in a flash of light.

- Rumi

This Rumi stanza could be directed at most of those who vented on your recent post:

Until the juice ferments a while in the cask,
it isn't wine. If you wish your heart to be bright,
you must do a little work.

Jesus, Oldpro... No offence, but didn't you get enough "playing king of the moral high ground" on the other thread, you've gotta bring it over to this one?

Sorry, Marc. Guess I just lost my head. Sometimes it is difficult to these Franklinian Esoterica posts going;.
