Source of the new!

There surely exists a deeper world.
What’s the telling sign you ask?
The renewal of the moments, the passing of the old.

A new day, a new night; new gardens, new life,
every breath brings about fresh insights;
newness is richness, joyfulness.

Where does the new come from?
Where does the old end up?
See past the walls of perception…
experience the boundlessness,
the universe has no beginning, no end!

Like a stream, the universe appears bounded,
yet all flows by…the new arriving fresh…moment by moment,
I wonder…where from?          

~Rumi (Divan-e Shams)
