Can’t help but smile about this quirky handmade sign stumbled upon recently in the Kensington Market district of Toronto.
The words are from a poem by Rumi that is generally understood to be about putting aside judgments that divide people and instead to focus on appreciating the wonders of being and the things that connect us all.
I LOVE it! I am pretty sure I need a sign like that on my front door.
Me too! 🙂
I love it too!! Thanks for sharing, Brett 🙂
I see it that in Divine Union all is perfect and that I, as human must see differences and create compartments and such, when I leave this world, I will remember that Union and live in perfection again, another energy field 🙂
Yes, well said. There are many variations of this key embracing idea.
There was once a Canadian show, The King Of Kensington…
whoever wrote the sign probably said, “Thank you” afterward……
I love Canada!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi, Stephanie, thanks for mentioning that — from the link the show sounds like fun! I’m going to track down some episodes.
I like this idea of random acts of poetry or “poetry bombing”. Plus the message is fabulous.
Yes, that’s a great idea — random acts of poetry! 🙂
Random acts of poetry sounds perfect to me. Perhaps we could start a trend.
I’m on board with that! 🙂
I like this sign very much. There should be one like this at every park entrance.
This is so great! Wish more people could think like this. We’d have a better world.
Totally love this message. Thanks for sharing.
Where is There?
That’s what we need to find. 🙂
I need GPS 🙂
Guerrilla poetry–I love it!
I like that idea as well! That area of Toronto has a number of such random displays.
I love that poem and the idea that someone would post it like that.
I like that it was done that way as well.
This is splendid. Now I must research Rumi. (Do you know The Sloppy Buddhist’s blog, also WordPress? If not, you might like it a lot.)
Hi, Penny, I don’t recall visiting that blog, so thanks for mentioning it. I’ll plan to visit it. Rumi’s work is full of splendid insight and he is most often associated with Sufism, which in a very broad sense shares a perspective similar to Buddhism.
thanks for the Rumi positioning — Sloppy Buddhist is, as you’ll guess, far from sloppy, both in the quotes she chooses to introduce each post and in the splendid photography (her own) that follows
Penny, thanks again. I tracked down the site and am enjoying her posts. 🙂
I love this and it instantly brought a smile to my face as well.
I liked this quote and think it is a keeper, Brett. Thank you for this big smile-maker post! 😀
Wow, Brett. I like this quote by Rumi. So cool you found it on a poster.
I once included it on a field beside a farm. It had been the first time I had heard and shared it from a fellow blogger, JoAnna. . . . 🌾🌻🌾
Robin, that’s wonderful! 🙂
Oops, I included this in a post I took a photo of a field by a farm. It is always good to have a compromise and meeting in the middle. 🕊️
A lovely choice for a post, Brett !!!
