Universal Everything’s Flower People Parade of Joy and Wonder (with Rumi)

Here are a few moments of delight and wonder from video artists/experience designers/future thinkers, Universal Everything.  As we watched it, we thought, THAT is what we’ve felt around us as spring, then summer, burst forth, although we didn’t quite realize it…

Of course, it made us hunt for a poem, and we had only to open A Year with Rumi to find one and seems curiously fitting:

We began as a mineral.
We emerged into plant life and into
the animal state. Then into being human.
And always we have forgotten our former states,
except in early spring
when we dimly recall being green again.
That is how a young person turns
toward a teacher, how a baby leans
toward the breast, without knowing
the secret of its desire,
yet turning instinctively.
So humankind is being led along
an evolving course through this migration
of intelligences, and though we seem
to be sleeping, there is an inner wakefulness that directs the dream.
It will eventually startle us back
to the truth of who we are.

 

…we dimly recall being green again…
