Rumi was a 13th Century poet and was regarded as one of the greatest spiritual masters and poetical intellects.
“Everything you see has its roots in the unseen world, the forms may change yet the essence remains the same.
Every wonderful sight will vanish, every sweet word will fade but do not be disheartened, the source they come from is eternal, growing, branching out, giving new life and new joy.
Why do you weep? The source is within you and this whole cosmos is springing up from it.”
