Just a short one from The Essential Rumi to get you thinking.

“The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.”

In what ways do you go back to sleep day to day?

As always, please share your thoughts, stories and questions below. Your interaction creates a living wisdom for us all to benefit from.
