Beautiful song....

Mirabai Ceiba

I got an email about this couple being on tour with a link to one of their songs. I begrudgingly clicked on the link in the middle of a busy day and have not been able to stop listening to them since.

This link is to a song A Hundred Blessings that is a Rumi poem (the second stanza below) put to music.

click on it here:

Rumi - Hidden Music - Telling the Secret -


Let us fall in love again and scatter gold dust all over the world.
Let us become a new spring and feel the breeze drift in the heaven´s scent.
Let us dress the earth in green, and like the sap of a young tree
let the grace from within sustain us.
Let us carve gems out of our stony hearts
and let them light our path to Love.
The glance of Love is crystal clear
and we are blessed by its light.


When Love comes suddenly and taps on your window,
run and let it in but first,
shut the door of your reason.
Even the smallest hint chases love away
like smoke that drowns the freshness of the morning breeze.
To reason Love can only say, the way is barred, you can´t pass through
but to the lover it offers a hundred blessings.
Before the mind decides to take a step
Love has reached the seventh heaven.
Before the mind can figure how
Love has climbed the Holy Mountain.
I must stop this talk now and let
Love speak from its nest of silence.
