Work Porn for me is a set of words that are unremarkable on their own and yet when strung together generate something deep within us, provoking our most inner selves to contemplate what matters, penetrating our sense of reason and understanding, leaving us staggered and desperately wanting the moment back again to complete what is always a happy ending.

Rumi is a word porn star, Born in 1207 he is one of the worlds great mystical poets.  His life is often described as being divided into 2 separate events– the first half a rather conventional existence where he was a book learned University professor, the second half was the work he created after he met what he calls “the beloved”.. perhaps he’s referring to the God of his understanding, perhaps he’s referring to some other deep and sacred shift in his consciousness… reading his word porn offer’s us a glimpse while still leaving us in suspense, never fully revealing the motivation behind his deeply passionate and committed spiritual life nor fully revealing what propelled him to offer to the world his amazing work:

Rumi has long stirred my soul.  If you’ve not yet been properly acquainted, allow me to introduce you:

Day 1:

“What I had thought of before as God, I met today in another human being” ~ Rumi

“Whose idea was this, to have the lover visible, and the Beloved invisible!” ~ Rumi
