“I have abolished duality from myself.
I have seen the two worlds as One!
One I seek, One I know,
One I see, and One I call.”
~ By RUMI
“You look for me and what do you see? You! Am I playing games with you? Holding up a mirror for you to behold God? Yes! These are games of love and truth. Look for me and find yourself, for I am you and you are me, and together we are one, playing hide and seek in love’s great playground.”
“Like molten gold, poured from the furnace of divine love into a one of a kind mold, you are created uniquely and of divine essence. You are both the lover and the beloved. There is no aspect of your life separate from your spiritual journey, and there is no aspect of you that is not of divine origin. So then why the frowning, the fear or the questioning? Let me share a sublime secret with you; let me whisper it into your heart now. There is nothing to fear. All is unfolding according to the divine genius and there is a sweet shift in store for you. No matter how dire circumstances may appear to be or despairing you may feel, there is still an avenue through which fulfillment and resolution will be granted. This will happen! That is because the Divine seeks wholeness of the one. That means anything and every part of existence (and that includes you and all aspects of your being and life) is claimed by the Divine. Your return to the Divine keeps rigorous, flawless accounts. Therefore, nothing shall be left unaccounted for – not even that which seems to be outside divine attention and grace at this moment.
You must remember that you are a living heart, the dweller at the center between heaven and earth, star and soil, light and dark. If you cannot summon the joy to rise up and meet the Divine Beloved, fear not. That cunning lover lies deep within the depths waiting to gather you into sacred embrace as you descend into the darkness. Either through flying or falling, you shall be caught and tangled up in divine embrace. So fear not. Cast aside worry and concern. Know that you are thoroughly itemized on the divine ledger and not one moment of your struggle or suffering shall miss the hawk-like gaze of the ever-attentive and heavenly beloved.
This oracle comes to you with particular guidance. There is a friction or conflict within you or your life right now, a sense perhaps of being pulled in more than one direction and confusion because of this. You are questioning; which path to take, this way or that? What if you choose this path and it turns out the other would have been better? But how can you know now what choice, if any, is most needed in your life? So many questions! Your mind is scurrying! There is no other word for it! Backwards and forwards it goes, to and fro, trying to settle upon the truth. I love you too much to allow this to continue unchecked. Surrender it. Give it up. The truth you seek is this: You shall be.
You shall manifest your destiny just as the acorn grows into the oak tree. You cannot be other than what you are and as you accept this, life responds. It breathes and relaxes around you so what you need can come to you more easily. It finds you, drawn to the need in you that is natural and inviting, and not a cause for anxiety or distress. The need leads to satiety. What is desired and what fulfills that desire is one. They are lovers that come to each other naturally, even though darkness and confusion, drawn to each other, following the natural course of the universe to become one.
So do not fret and fear, my beloved. Do not hold back from that which feels incomplete out of anxiety or distress. It is just the lover that will soon be joined by the beloved. Do not hold back from that which feels incomplete out of anxiety or distress. It is just the lover that will soon be joined by the beloved. You are not recognizing the moment before this occurs. So fret not, and instead, let that inner lover loose! Allow her to shake out her hair, put on her most sensuous perfume, and laugh as she dances barefoot in fields of lush grass and fragrant flower. Let her tempt her beloved to come close because she can be seen, she can be heard; her movement sends her scent through the air. She entices the yearning beloved to her. And soon enough they meet, and it becomes possible for, yet again, two to become one, and then there will be wild peace and ecstatic contentment within you.
If there is any part of you struggling to surrender the conflict between old and new, between what has been and what needs to be, between passion and duty, creativity and rationality, between this role or identity, then know this: even the conflict serves. Don’t choose either one and believe it is the answer. Sometimes the sacrifice is not one or the other, but the idea that it can be only one or the other! At another level, a level of divine resolution, there is beyond the apparent polarity and conflict a third way, the rising up to where there is only one perfection taking place constantly. Open your heart; you will find the bridge to understanding and trusting in that perfection there, where it has always been and will always be. Don’t worry. All is happening exactly as it should.
This oracle brings you particular guidance. There is a resolution and a perfect ‘coming together’ of elements in your life that might have seemed disparate or in conflict. Something you have been trying to integrate is so very nearly ready to ‘click’ into place. Perform the sacred honouring ritual and stay with your process. The coherence, the integration, the balance and coming together you seek is on your horizon, approaching you swiftly now.”
Sacred Honouring Ritual: “Place your hands at your heart and say aloud: ‘Rumi, who loves me unconditionally, I gaze into my heart and you are there! I gaze into your heart and see my own face! We are one. This oneness is contagious! May it swiftly affect every aspect of my inner world so that my outer existence aligns gently with perfect harmony with the great Divine Beloved. You and I are one with eh perfection of divinity unfolding, now and always. Through grace and my own free will, so be it.’
When you are ready, place your hands in prayer position and bow your head in reverence and recognition to the one divine plan unfolding. Say: ‘I surrender into the one truth of divine perfection which includes my own divine destiny now. Through mercy and grace, so be it.’
When you are ready, simply close your eyes and bow your head again. Then you have completed your ritual.”

It’s so easy to give up hope when things are not moving quickly in the direction of our desired outcome. Maybe we have been doing everything in our power to try and make something come to fruition.. to no avail. We might be losing hope, giving up or getting frustrated. We might be starting to lament; telling others how things aren’t going our way. Maybe we start changing our minds, weighing our options, getting dangerously close to repeating old patterns. We might be getting so caught up in what isn’t happening, that we forget to loosen up a little and just let it all Be.
So, now we have a message that things are in fact progressing nicely. That everything is turning out exactly as planned. That what you desire so fervently is manifesting itself as you read this. It is just a matter of receptivity, surrender and release of control of the if’s, when’s and how’s.
Take a little break from the hard work of focus and intention and have some fun instead! Raising your vibration doing something completely different from the task in front of you will actually help you get where you need to be. Being playful, taking a little time out to have dinner out with friends, take a dance class, find a way that feels right to you to socialize and be free. Or enjoy some time alone, listening to your favourite music, watching a funny movie or enjoying a relaxing bath; maybe try a guided meditation to take your mind off things.
Using affirmations and mindfulness, keep your thoughts as uplifted as possible while you wait for what is yours to come to you.
