Avila, Teresa, Nada te turbe

Avila, Teresa, Nada te turbe

Een tamelijk lange lezing over Teresa van Avila (wikipedia), een Spaanse mystica uit de 16e eeuw, Spanje’s gouden eeuw.

Klein citaatje uit de lezing (~minuut 38:10):
“There are some people who’ve never seen a tree unless they’re ready to saw it down.
And they never see themselves except as a commodity to be used.
There are some people who think they only are what they do.
And therefore they think the more they do the more they are.”

“Nada te turbe” (wees onbevreesd) was een van haar gevleugelde uitspraken.
Het volledige gedichtje is hier te lezen.

Dit soort zaken vielen vroeger onder het vak “Godsdienst”.

“Why cleavest thou to this mere name of tree,
So that thou art utterly balked and disappointed ?
Pass over names and look to qualities,
So that qualities may lead thee to essence”

(Teachings of Rumi, translated and abridged by E.H. Winfield, 1887. Book II, story 17; The Tree of Life)


Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī, also known as Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī, Mevlânâ/Mawlānā, Mevlevî/Mawlawī, and more popularly simply as Rumi, was a 13th-century Persian Sunni Muslim poet, jurist, Islamic scholar, theologian, and Sufi mystic. Wikipedia

First remove “I”, that’s ego.
