Wild Joy Ruminations
by Paul Goldman
Message from the Author
From a clear deep heart mind I have listened, with both ears! Whether the voice of Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi himself, the Beloved or some other entity of good and holy intent has spoken, that is for others to decide. I have tried to transcribe the ecstatic words which flowed through both my heart and fingertips to the best of my human ability.
I beseech you to let these treatises on wild joy enter the very marrow of your being and dance the juicy essence of you at a quantum level. There is no need to stress, strain or try to interpret precise meaning. Should you be moved, shifted or somehow elevated from your current position, then that is sufficient.
My hope for you is that a word here or a lilt of phrasing there may speak only to you in a way that you have not heard before, maybe an ancient calling to a love, a reckoning of your own divine inheritance, your divinity itself.
I invite you to slip your shoes off and leave the outside world behind as you enter this silent sacred space. All of you is welcome here. You have truly arrived, at home at last.
Welcome beloved one.
In Eternal Gratitude,
