rumi in the mid-night

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 for certain fail the test.”

rumi in the day-light

“LOVE desires that this secret should be revealed,
For if a mirror reflects not, of what use is it?
Knowest thou why thy mirror reflects not?

Because the rust has not been scoured from its face.

If it were purified from all rust and defilement,
It would reflect the shining of the SUN Of GOD.
O friends, ye have now heard this tale,
Which sets forth the very essence of my case.”
