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?β€” 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.
