Daily Lectio Divina: New Moon, Hilal

Repost of Episode 116

In this episode of the guided lectio divina podcast, we’re using a selection from Rumi’s poem “New Moon, Hilal.”

A new moon teaches gradualness
and deliberation and how one gives birth
to oneself slowly. Patience with small details
makes perfect a large work, like the universe.

What nine months of attention does for an embryo
forty early mornings will do
for your gradually growing wholeness.
