Shake the Nonsense Out

This excerpt from a Rumi poem stopped me in my tracks today:

Love sometimes gets tired of speaking sweetly

And wants to rip to shreds

All your erroneous notions of truth

That make you fight within yourself, dear one,

And with others,

Causing the world to weep

On too many fine days…

The Beloved sometimes wants

To do us a great favor:

Hold us upside down

And shake all the nonsense out.

What erroneous notions of truth have you been clutching that need to be shaken out of you?
