Izgubiti, da pridobiš

Posted: 06/06/2011 in Misli

Kjerkoli je razvalina, je upanje na zaklad – zakaj ne iščeš zaklada “Bog” v opustošenem srcu?

Rumi (vzeto iz Willigis Jäger, Vsak val je morje)

Večina ljudi ne opaža vrednosti skritih stvari, nemara ovitih v navaden ali celo grd papir, bolj je naklonjena nekaterim življenjskim izkušnjam in zanika ali odklanja druge. Če se izogibamo vsaki bolečini in za vsako ceno segamo za lagodjem, se lahko zgodi, da ostanemo brez bližine ali sočutja; če zavračamo spremembo in tveganje, se pogosto ogoljufamo za iskanje; če zanikamo svoje trpljenje, mogoče nikoli ne bomo spoznali svoje moči ali veličine.

Iz: Rachel Naomi Remen, Misli ob kuhinjski mizi

Gre za skrajšano različico izvirne pesmi; pripenjam celo besedilo (vredno branja):

The Parting Glass

O, all the money e’er I had,
I spent it in good company.
And all the harm that ever I’ve done,
alas it was to none but me.
And all I’ve done for want of wit
to mem’ry now I can’t recall;
So fill to me the parting glass,
Good night and joy be with you all.

O, all the comrades e’er I had,
They’re sorry for my going away.
And all the sweethearts e’er I had,
They’d wished me one more day to stay.
But since it falls unto my lot,
That I should go and you should not,
I gently rise and softly call,
Goodnight and joy be with you all.

If I had money enough to spend,
And leisure time to sit awhile.
There is a fair maid in this town,
That sorely has my heart beguiled.
Her rosy cheeks and ruby lips,
I own, she has my heart in thrall;
Then fill to me the parting glass,
Good night and joy be with you all.
