Don’t be content with worldly promises
for I am the tabernacle of your contentment.  ~ Rumi

Friend, love, contentment

Remember what I said. . . .

I said, “Don’t leave, for I am your Friend.”
In the mirage of this world
I am the fountain of life.
Even if you leave in anger
and stay away for a thousand years
You will return to me,
for I am your goal.

I said, Don’t be content with worldly promises
for I am the tabernacle of your contentment.

I said, Do not go upon the dry land
for I am the Sea without a shore.

Soul, Words, Ocean

I said, O bird, do not fly into the hunter’s net;
Come toward me, for I am the power
that moves your wings, that lifts you through the sky.

I said, They’ll capture you and put you on ice;
I am the fire and the warmth
of your true yearning.

I said, They will cover you with water and clay;
You will forget that I am your taintless beginning.

I said, No one can tell how my work will manifest
for I create the world from all sides.

Let your heart’s light guide you to my house.
Let your heart’s light show you that we are one.

~ Rumi
