I swear, since seeing Your face,
the whole world is fraud and fantasy
The garden is bewildered as to what is leaf or blossom.
The distracted birds
can’t distinguish the birdseed from the snare.
A house of love with no limits,
a presence more beautiful than venus or the moon,
a beauty whose image fills the mirror of the heart.
Rumi, The Divani Shamsi Tabriz XV
We were all created in His image,
and yet we were each created different and unique.
No two people are alike.
No hearts beat to the same rhythm.
If God had wanted everyone to be the same,
He would have made it so.
Therefore, disrespecting differences and imposing your thoughts on others,
is an amount to disrespecting God’s holy scheme.
Shams Tabriz spiritual instructor of Rumi ❤️❤️
