Whenever we manage to love without expectations,
calculations, negotiations, we are indeed in 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.
Shams-i-Tabrīzī was spiritual instructor or guru of Rumi.
It is better to conquer yourself
than to win thousand battles,
Then the victory is yours .
It cannot be taken from you,
not by angels or by demons,
heaven or hell.
~~ Buddha ❤
