بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِي
The seeker said to himself,
"If I'd known the real meaning of this being with God,
how should I have gone searching for Him?
But that knowledge depended on this journeying:
that knowing can't be gained by thinking,
no matter how precise."
Mathnawi VI, Maulana Jallaluddin Rumi, may Allah sanctify his soul & bless his secret
are we 'planted' yet?
the rose that is not planted will never unfold to reveal its sublime beauty.
when? will our petals unfold?
smelling dead roses.
