Seeing through the Beloved’s Eyes

Borrow the Beloved’s eyes. Look through them and you’ll see the Beloved’s face everywhere. No tiredness, no jaded boredom…things you have hated will become helpers.
–  Jalaluddin Rumi, translated by Coleman Barks, We Are Three

  1. Dear Sr. Pat –

    This is a beautiful image of the mountains, river and grass and yes, and yes “seen through the eyes of the beloved.”

    I think you would appreciate erm, charles brandt… He came to Vancouver Issland in 196. Here is a contemplative piece of his writing and photography that I put together

    Thanks for your life of contemplation and action.


    • Thank you for your comment, Bruce. Yes, I enjoyed the piece by Brandt. And now I need to find a little time to discover Through the Illusionary Lens. I can see that we (to quote one of my Dominican brothers who compared the spiritualities of Meister Eckhart and Thich Nhat Hanh) “walk the path together.” Peace, Pat ☺️
