Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.
Study of a Figure in a Landscape, 1952, oil on canvas.
Francis Bacon, 1909-1992, Irish. Phillips Collection, Washington, DC
The quote is from the work of Jalāl ad-Dīn Mohammad Rūmī , 1207-1273, born Balkh, died Konya.
The quote is a description of the spiritual insight of non-dual reality which does not excuse us from fighting the evil which obtains in the dual reality of our worldly, material lives.
