A thought from Jalalluddin Rumi

Posted in Uncategorized at 5:57 am by randallbutisingh

Everything you see has its roots in the unseen world.  The forms may change, yet the essence remains the same. 

Every wonderful sight will vanish, every sweet smell will fade; but do not  be disheartened.

The source they came from is eternal, growing, branching out, giving new life and new joy.

Why do you weep?  the source is within you and the whole world is springing up from it.

Comment:

Rumi is a Sufi, a mystic, one who in moments of ecstacy sees himself as “I am He”.  He is a prolific writer and his poems are widely read in America.  There is a beautiful collection  of some of his poems translated by Deepak Chopra which will delight you if you can find it in any of the book stores.
