.......Still on Rumi

                      You are all mixed up.
                    For the sake of position,
         you come with reverence before the blind
                       and wait in the hall;
         but in the presence of those who can see,
                 you behave with disrespect.
   No wonder you've become fuel for the fire of desire.


    The road leads neither East nor West, but within.

Rumi : Daylight
A Daybreak of Spiritual Guidance,
from Jalla-al din Rumi's Mathnawi.
Translated by Camille and Kabir Helminski
