I’ve been spending my mornings lately reading “The Essential Rumi”. I find his writing to be so beautiful, touching, creative and poetic and I’ve really enjoyed starting my days with reading his words.
One of the poems in this collection that has had a profound impact on me is “After the Meditation”. I’ve been stuck on it for the last week, re-reading it every morning and finding new meaning within it. In this episode, I discuss and dissect the poem and the concept of finding your “heart-donkey”.
