Within people there is a longing and a desire such that,
even if a hundred thousand worlds were theirs to own,
still they would find no rest or comfort. They try every
trade and craft, studying astronomy, medicine and
every other subject, but they reach no completion, for
they have not found their true desire.
Poets call the Beloved “heart’s ease,” because there
the heart finds ease. How can we find peace and rest
in anything but the Beloved?
All these pleasures and persuits are like a ladder.
The rungs of a ladder are not a place to make one`s
home ; there are for passing by. Fortunate are those
who learn this. The long road becomes short for them,
and they do not waste their lives upon the steps.

The way the Beloved can fit in my heart,
two thousand lives could fit in this body of mine.
One kernel could contain a thousand bushels,
and a hundred worlds pass through the eye of the needle.
However much I might try to expound or explain Love,
when I come to Love itself, I am ashamed of my explanations…
Love alone can explain the mysteries of love and lovers.

DO YOU CARE ABOUT MEDIA REPRESENTATION?

Help us raise $35k in 35 days to help make sure our media represents all of us! 

Our mission is to reach equal media representation for the LGBT community, women, people of color, people with disabilities, and those that live at the intersection of those identities. 

There are many ways to fight for equal representation, and one of them is to help diverse folks enter and thrive in the entertainment industry. 

We’re launching our Mirror Scholarship & Fellowship to provide monetary awards for diverse and underrepresented youth and independent media makers who are pursuing careers in the media and performing arts. 

Please help by spreading the word about our campaign or donating. 

We’re offering incredible perks from stars who are already helping to make our media more diverse and representative of all of us, including:

  • Dan Bucatinsky (Scandal, The Comeback)
  • Chris Colfer (Glee)
  • Darren Criss (Glee)
  • Lea DeLaria (OITNB)
  • Amy Fox (The Switch)
  • Lisa Kudrow (Friends, Web Therapy, The Comeback)
  • Sean Maher (Firefly, Arrow, Son of Batman)
  • Dylan Marron (Welcome to Night Vale, Whatever this is)
  • Jasika Nicole (Fringe, Scandal, Welcome to Night Vale)
  • Crissle West (The Read)
  • Julie Vu (The Switch)
  • and more!

Check out the campaign, donate, and spread the word! 

Because representation matters.

Know that between the Faithful is an ancient union.
The Faithful are numerous, but the Faith is one:
their bodies are numerous, but their soul is one.
Besides the understanding which is in the ox,
the human being has another intelligence and soul;
Again, in the saint, the owner of Divine breath,
there is a soul and intelligence other than human.
The souls of wolves and dogs are separate, every one,
but the souls of the Lions of God are in union.

This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and attend them all! Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in.

~ Rumi ~
