Could Wrigley Field Be Rumi’s Field?Will We Meet You There?

A recent Wall Street Journal article inspired this post. It was titled: The Chicago Cubs are the Official Team of Jews—Also Christians, Buddhists and Muslims!” At first, it made no sense to us. Was this some politically correct doublespeak?

 

The article went on to explain that pundits from all these religions mentioned have agreed that the Cubs will win the World Series. Each is using their interpretations of numbers that are a part of their religious writings, theories of meaningful numbers. Finally, something that they all can agree upon!

Then, this evening, as we were sipping some Sagrantino wine from Umbria made from Sagrantino grapes, it came to me (A) that perhaps Wrigley Field could be the field about which the Suffi Moslem mystic, Rumi, referred. Here is the quote:

 

"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing

and right doing there is a field.

I’ll meet you there."

 

We could not help but reflect on the idea that all of us should try to find such a field, where it is safe to be friends, instead of enemies based on beliefs, dogmas and past wrongdoings. Will we meet you in Rumi’s field?

Truly a field of dreams in Chicago. Haven't been there myself but plenty of eyes will be on it.

I didn't hear that but I took a breath when I read your first sentence. The Cubs bringing world peace? Ok, could happen

Hi Ron and Alexandra - I think it is time for the Cubs to win.  And I love their stadium.

I have not really been following it, but aren't they about to lose the series?

I lived by Pittsburgh Pirates and Chicago White Socks fields(I think it was Wrigley (owned by Joseph Kennedy in part as I recall). That was a mistake.

All kids get excited allowing people to park their car on the lawn and even sell hot dog at discounted price.  I still have dreams about the kids hollowing parking parking... Hot dog.... One can not take nap during the game....

We all could use a field where we can seek some peace.  A great thought to ponder.

Originally from Chicago, with lots of relatives in Lincoln Park and Lake View, I am a life long Cubs fan. Since they won the game tonight, the prediction is believable!

Finally,  something we can all agree on, and support one team. Oh wait, I forgot about those Cleveland fans.

Unless Rumi can swing a bat, I doubt he will be useful! My mother actually died while sitting down to watch the Cubs play ball. I know she is there!

If there is a field like that, I want to find it.  If there is a field like that, maybe the Cubs can win.

It's been so long since I have been at Wrigley field, a special place. Anything that Rumi says is ok in my book. He was an amazing man. If someone like him exists today, please let me know, I want to meet him.
