A Student of Sense and Nonsense

Rumi; Skill and Revelation

“Investigate any skill or profession and you’ll discover that the root of them all is Revelation; people learned them from prophets and saints, and holy beings, who are the Universal Intellect. Remember the story of the raven. When Cain killed Abel, he did not know what to do. A raven killed another raven and dug the soil with its beak and covered it with earth. From this, Cain learned how to make a grave and how to bury. It is the same with every skill. The Universal Intellect is the founder of everything, and it is the saints and prophets and mystics who have married the partial intellect and the Universal Intellect so that they are one.”
