New Ground–no longer–Common Ground

A Quote from Rumi:
Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing
  There is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
  The world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase Each Other
  Doesn’t make any sense.
(Text 158, Open Secret, Versions of Rumi
