Seeing through the Beloved’s Eyes

Borrow the Beloved’s eyes. Look through them and you’ll see the Beloved’s face everywhere. No tiredness, no jaded boredom…things you have hated will become helpers. –  Jalaluddin Rumi, translated by Coleman Barks, We Are Three

Let Yourself Be Drawn

Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray. – Jalaluddin Rumi, Essential Rumi, versions by Coleman Barks
