Video: “Hear Blessings Dropping Their Blossoms,” Rumi + Utah Spring Flowers

IMG_1483

Quite possibly I have been overgramming Utah’s spring flowers, but I have never been so grateful for these transient beauties!

There are far too many photos to share anywhere, but I created a video to remember this spring. It begins with a gorgeous quotation from Rumi that captures a key practice in the art of striving:

But listen to me: for one moment,

quit being sad. Hear blessings

dropping their blossoms

around you. God.

The Essential Rumi, trans. Coleman Barks (Harper Collins, 2004), p. 8

Enjoy!
