Rumi for Real

And in semi-repentance over the last post, here’s the real deal.

    If you have illusions about heaven

    lose them.

    The soul heard of one attribute of Love

    and came to earth.

    A hundred attributes of heaven

    could never charm her back.

    It is here the soul discovers

    the reality of Love.

(from Rumi – Whispers of the Beloved, translated by Maryam Mafi & Azima Melita Kolin)
