Are you looking for Me? I’m in the next seat. My shoulder is against yours. You will not find me in stupas, not in Indian shrine rooms, nor in synagogues, nor in cathedrals, not in masses, not in kirtans, not in legs winding around your own neck, nor in eating nothing but vegetables. When you look for Me, you will see Me instantly - you will find Me in the tiniest house of time.
Kabir says, “Student, tell me, what is God?
He is the Breath in the breath”.
Kabir, 15th century
Reshad Feild reads and gives comments on this poem. (German translation by Barbara Feild)
You are warmly invited to attend the Turning Weekend with Barbara Feild on 7 and 8 March 2020 in Solothurn, Switzerland.
The many inspirations offered on this website come from a long line of inner teachings beyond any religious form. A living school is not about answers, but is formed by our inner work and by living our inner questions. You are invited to embark on the greatest possible adventure: coming to know yourself and exploring the purpose of your life which is in no way separate from the One Life!
“Breath is Life” (Reshad Feild) and thus learning how to breathe consciously is indispensable to connect us deeper and deeper to the One Life. Being aware of the Breath, we may become receptive and can form the receptacle of the chalice (chalice as a symbol) to receive divine love and finally come to know we are loved. The inner and outer turn, going back to Rumi, is one of our practices that beautifully serves this receptive attitude – it is turning in love.
The teachings in this school are the distillation of more than 50 years of Reshad Feild's work as a spiritual teacher and the many people who have been involved in this living school. The teachings are from the essence of Sufi teachings and go back to any time of the human quest, long before the word "Sufi" was first mentioned in history. Thus, we study the inner meaning of the three poles of the Sufi tradition, represented by Mevlana Jellaludin Rumi, Ibn Arabi and Abdul Qadir Gilani.
