SOMEWHERE OUT THERE (James Ingram and Linda Ronstadt)

Somewhere out there,
Beneath the pale blue night,
Someone’s thinking of me,
And loving me tonight.
Somewhere out there,
Someone’s saying a prayer,
Then we’ll find one another,
In that big somewhere out there.

(Chorus 1)
And even though I know how very far apart we are,
It helps to think we might be wishing
On the same bright star,
And when the night will start to sing
A lonesome lullaby,
It helps to think we’re sleeping underneath the
Same big sky.

(Chorus 2)
Somewhere out there,
If love can see us through,
Then, we’ll be together,
Somewhere out there, out where dreams, come true.

(Repeat Chorus 1)

(Repeat Chorus 2)

Rumi: Say I Am You (Sufi poem)

Video commentary:

Rumi’s poems elegantly and consistently touch our inner being and inspire us to go beyond our limitations towards the Divine.

My beloved asked me “Why does Rumi’s poem have such a power and energy in them?”

I think Rumi’s poems have so much power and energy because he must have devoted much time meditating on scriptures like the Song of songs about our oneness with the Beloved. I would go with his interpretations of the scriptures because they bring peace and we learn from the book of James that wisdom from above is peaceable. So being soaked in God’s loving presence, Rumi was able to convey the voice of our Beloved through his poems that beckons us to come away with Him and be free from the condemning voices of the world system and be refreshed in our spirit as we rediscover our inclusion and union with Him. The natural elements around us like the sun, the moon, the morning mist and the wind serve to remind us that we are inseparable from our Creator for they are always with us without fail. They can be our gentle guides to reconnect ourselves and see ourselves being one with the universe.
