Prayer for Monday

The Iroquois Green Corn Ceremony ends today.

Don’t be too timid and squeamish about your actions.
All life is an experiment.
The more experiments you make the better.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

On the day I die, when I’m being carried
toward the grave, don’t weep. Don’t say,
He’s gone! He’s gone. Death has nothing
to do with going away. The sun sets and
the moon sets, but they’re not gone.
Death is a coming together. The tomb
looks like a prison, but it’s really
release into union. The human seed goes
down in the ground like a bucket into
the well where Joseph is. It grows and
comes up full of some unimagined beauty.
Your mouth closes here and immediately
opens with a shout of joy there.

(Jelaluddin Rumi)
