The Water of Life

Peace, one and all…

rumi

‘Look at yourself, trembling afraid of
nonexistence:
know that nonexistence
is also afraid
that God might bring it into existence.
If you grasp at worldly dignities,
it’s from fear too.
Everything, except love of the Most Beautiful,
is really agony. It’s agony
to move towards death and not drink the water
of life’
(Masnavi, 1.3684-3687, trans. Shaykh Kabir Helminski)
