I Can’t Stop Pointing to the Beauty: Reflections with Rumi and the Yogini.

Via on Jan 30, 2012


 …

Close both eyes
to see with the other eye.

.

Only from the heart Can you touch the sky.

.

You were born with wings. Why prefer to crawl through life?

People of the world don’t look at themselves, and so they blame one another.

.

Look past your thoughts, so you may drink the pure nectar of This Moment.

The only lasting beauty is the beauty of the heart.

Text by Rumi

The lovely Yogini is Elise Joan
