Rumi Wisdom…



With each breath the world is renewed,

And so are we…unaware of this constant renewal.

Life arrives anew, anew like water in a stream, 

But appears, in form as a continuous thing.

So swiftly it arrives that it looks continuous 

Just as fire does when you move it rapidly.

If you set a branch on fire and move it swiftly with your hand,

It appears as a long line.

Creation occurs at an astounding speed;

Thus time appears continuous, and long.

Through the divine word form is born;

Then once again the wave returns to the ocean.

Forms come out of formlessness, then return to the divine.

So every moment you die, and are reborn;

As the prophet said, 

The world is but a moment.
