Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi
Become the sky.
Take an axe to the prison wall
Walk out like someone suddenly born into color.
Do it now.
On the turn
I am so small I can barely be seen.
How can this great love be inside me?
Look at your eyes. They are small,
But they see enormous things.
All rivers at once
What is the body? Endurance.
What is love? Gratitude.
What is hidden in our chests? Laughter.
What else? Compassion.
Unfold your own myth
But don’t be satisfied with stories,
How things have gone with others.
Unfold your own myth,
Without complicated explanation,
So everyone will understand the passage,
We have opened you.
