Agitations of the Baker’s Beauty

Sarah weaves Rumi’s “The Merchant and the Parrot” story into the well known Biblical tale found in Genesis Chapter 40, of Joseph interpreting the dreams of his prison companions, the butler and the baker. Using the beauty of the words of the 13th-century Islamic scholar and Sufi mystic Rumi and the revelations offered to us through Emanuel Swedenborg in Arcana Coelestia, we come to see the universal principles of self and the Divine and what must be given up as the relationship between the two unfolds.
