Because the wine is from your cup, I’ve become a drunkard.
These are the words of Rumi.
You are very fortunate for understanding what he is talking about. Very few people do.
Our Beloved is answering a fellow traveller on this journey towards our true self, the heart, Love itself. The taste of the bigger love, this non-personal love, that so clearly shines in Him, has reached our lips. Somewhere in us, there is a recognition, and the taste of it is intoxicating.
Be careful what you love, because that is what you will become.
Three weeks in silence have come to an end, and so has this retreat. Now it is time to carefully reconnect with each other, and to go on. New treasures of insights are with us, and a deep, deep gratitude radiates from our hearts.
We are so blessed to have found this source of love. It cannot be understood, only lived, and shared at His feet.
Thank you, Beloved Babaji.
