If you are depressed
you are living in the past.
if you are anxious
you are living in the future,
if you are at peace,
you are living in the present.

OM: the symbol of the Three in One,
the three worlds in the Soul;
the three times, past, present, future, in Eternity;
the three Divine Powers, Creation, Preservation, Transformation,
in the one Being;
the three essences, immortality, omniscience, joy, in the one Spirit.
This is the Word, the Symbol,
of the Master and Lord, the perfected Spiritual Man.
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.
