The Noah Project

Rebuilding a sustainable world.


Spiritual Windowshoppers

These spiritual windowshoppers, who idly ask, How much

is that? Oh, I’m just

looking. They handle a hundred items and put them down,

shadows with no capital.

What is spent is love and two eyes wet with weeping. But

these walk into a shop,

and their whole lives pass suddenly in that moment, in

that shop. Where did you

go? Nowhere. What did you have to eat? Nothing much.

Even if you don’t know what

you want, buy something to be part of the general exchange.

Start a huge, foolish project,

like Noah. It makes absolutely no difference what

people think of you.

– Rumi –
