The jewel has been lost in matter

A friend of mine, Eva Ruland, who teaches Soul Collage, a wonderful way to spend some time tapping in to your deeper self and into your creativity, posted this beautiful poem on her monthly newsletter. I want to share it with you.

The jewel has been lost in matter
and everybody is looking for it.
Some look for it in the east
and some in the west,
some in water
and some among stones.
But the servant Kabir
has found its value
and has it wrapped with care
in the seam of the mantle of his heart.

R. Tagore, Kabir 72
