The soul, our essence, the spirit world, indescribable by many, yet simply albeit passionately conveyed by Rumi.
I am sharing the translations by Shahram Shiva from the book, Rumi, Thief of Sleep.
love is from the infinite
and will remain until eternity.
The seeker of love escapes the chains of birth and death.
Tomorrow, when resurrection comes,
The heart that is not in love will fail the test.
when your chest is free of limiting
then you will see the ageless Beloved
you can not see yourself without a mirror
look at the Beloved, He is the brightest
….more from Essential Rumi by Coleman Barks in honour of the sacred other, the soul, and inner parent who is ready to care for the wounded inner child. This inner warrior is taking the reins…
a certain person came to the friend’s door
the friend answered, “go away, there’s
for raw meat at this table”
the individual went wandering for a year
nothing but the fire of separation
can change hypocrisy and ego
walked up and down, in front
of the the friend’s house
“who is it?’
“please come in, my self
there’s no place in this house
the doubled end
of the thread, is not
through the eye of the needle
its a single-pointed,
fined-down, thread end
not a big ego-beast, with baggage”
