poetic wisdom - Rumi


Extracts from "He Also Made the Key"

How many men have found tragic ends running after beauty?
 Why don’t they look for you?— the heart and spirit of all beauty.

 You formed man from a handful of dust.
 You gave him the power to know the highest truth.
 You freed him from the snares of this world
 with one breath of your spirit.
Rumi on desire informed by spirit


 Now be silent.
 Let the One who creates the words speak.
 He made the door, He made the lock,

      He also made the key.

A reminder (for me, as much as anyone) that silence is a profound teacher
