What Draws You?

“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.”                Rumi

I’m discovering that this little phrase, “being drawn by” has a profound sense of freedom about it. It seems to me that as you practice it the exertion in life is eased and is slowly replaced by a natural kind of attraction and a “movement towards.” And so, the ethic I try to follow has much to do with, in Rumi’s words, feeling the strange pull of what I really love.

  1. You (and Rumi!) inspired me to consider what pulls me toward what I love. It is a beneficial exercise that leads to gratitude. Thank you, Don.


  2. Being drawn to something or somewhere is what informs my writing, some days it’s hard to choose!
