This week we will hear Frank Ostaseski reading the epilog in his book, The Five Invitations. The title of this chapter is “Dying Into Life”. It begins with a passage by the Persian poet Rumi:

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.

Don’t go back to sleep.You must ask for what you really want.

Don’t go back to sleep.

People are going back and forth across the doorsill

Where the two worlds touch

The door is round and open.

Don’t go back to sleep.

Each of the chapters in this book stands alone. It isn’t necessary to have heard any of the others in order to get deep meaning from an individual chapter.
