Real Heaven

Hell and heaven are not to be found in future,

for they are now, present.

When we love each other selflessly,

it is real heaven,

and when we are at war with each other and

spread hatred that is the real hell.

  1. Thank you for introducing me to Shams Tabrizi and Rumi. I have been reading so much about them.
    I just love this quote. It is so relevant to me.

    “The universe is a complete unique entity. Everything and everyone is bound together with some invisible strings. Do not break anyone’s heart; do not look down on weaker than you. One’s sorrow at the other side of the world can make the entire world suffer; one’s happiness can make the entire world smile.” – Shams Tabrizi
