Borrowed Light

O brother, Wisdom is pouring into you
from the beloved saint of God.
You've only borrowed it.
Although the house of your heart
is lit from inside,
that light is lent by a luminous neighbor.
Give thanks; don't be arrogant or vain;
pay attention without self-importance.
It's sad that this borrowed state
has put religious communities
far from religious communion.

Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi, may Allah sanctify his soul & bless his secret
'Rumi: Daylight', C. & Kabir Helminski, Threshold Books

Ya Huu
