“Spaciousness” (Rumi)

Soul flies in empty space, a single candle in the huge palace.

Bird-shadows cross whatever they happen to cross. Lovers pay attention only to the ecstasy of their love.

I jumped off a cliff to find out the true nature of soul. Do not sit inside the sadness of powerful, self-absorbed people. Become the ground under your own feet.

The soul’s joy enters a guest house

where Shams Tabriz is host. No one is there.
