The Heart Of Rumi~ February 8th.

Via on Feb 8, 2011

A Reflection Of Truth

“My soul is like a mirror that reveals secrets,

that will speak the Truth.”

I may not speak about them but

cannot deny knowing.

I run away from body and soul

where I belong, I swear, I do not know.

Seeker, if you want to know the secret,

first you must die to your self.

You may see me but do not think I am here

I have vanished into my Beloved

graced by the essence of love.

My arched back the bow and my words,

the unbending arrows aimed at Truth.

My tears are testimony of my devotion to Shams

and from those tears white lilies will grow

that will speak the Truth.”

~from Rumi: Hidden Music by Azima Melita Kolin and Maryam Mafi
