THE RUBY: REMEMBERING THE TREASURE IN YOUR CHEST

In the early morning hour,
just before dawn, lover and beloved wake and take a drink of water.
She asks, “Do you love me or yourself more? Really, tell the absolute truth.”
He says, “There's nothing left of me. I’m like a ruby held up to the sunrise. Is it still a stone, or a world made of redness? It has no resistance to sunlight”…
The ruby and the sunrise are one. Be courageous and discipline yourself.


- Rumi

Love is sacrifice, love is service, love shows itself in regard for the pleasure and displeasure of the beloved.

- Hazrat Inayat Khan

We have a treasure within us. We were born with it. Yet, much of the time it seems like we have forgotten our true inheritance. We walk around as if we are poor while closer to us than our breath is a treasury - sometimes referred to by the Sufi’s as the “ruby.”

Reclaiming this jewel will cost us a lot. Some would say, everything. “Everything” has everything to do with leaving behind much of the small, comfortable self all of us have constructed and that, often enough, now functions as our jailer.

Fueled by the universal longing to remember what we already are and taste the freedom of our birthright, we’ll enter the vastness and mystery of the heart. Through meditation and silence, stillness and movement poetry and story, and structured and spontaneous moments of dialogue and inquiry we’ll learn to sooth and relax the heart, polish the heart, and become increasingly familiar with this invisible yet palpable domain of our humanness that is tender, fiercely independent, empty, endlessly open and therefore capable of acting wisely in the world out of love and service to others.

Together we’ll explore what it’s like to cultivate the heart quality and open a doorway into the fullness of our humanity expressed most beautifully in our aliveness and ability to love.
