first, last, outer, inner, only that breath breathing human being.

Fatih-Istanbul, pentax k10d, by ozgur ozkok

“Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu
Buddhist, Sufi, or zen. Not any religion
or cultural system.

I am not from the East or the West,
not out of the ocean or up from the ground,
not natural or ethereal, not
composed of elements at all.

I do not exist, am not an entity in this world or in the next,
did not descend from Adam and Eve or any origin story.

My place is place less, a trace
of the traceless. Neither body or soul.

I belong to the beloved, have seen the two
worlds as one and that one call to and know,

first, last, outer, inner, only that
breath breathing human being.”

Mevlana Rumi
