May all beings be peaceful.
May all beings be happy.
May all beings be safe.
May all beings be free of suffering.
May all beings be liberated.
May all beings realize their essence and live this fully, completely and utterly!

I belong to the Beloved

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 the next,
did not descend from Adam or Eve or any

origin story. My place is placeless, 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 Jelaluddin Rumi
