He who is not captured by Love is like a wingless bird.
What understanding can he have of the world without knowing the Knower?
In love with himself, he is easily lured astray with no courage to embark on the path. The Beloved is the guardian of the gate that only he can open.
Those unable to pass are robbed of their essence. Dawn may come, but they remain asleep, while in our sky, the sun never sets nor rises. – Rumi

When I feel a dagger piercing my heart He is protecting me with His shield. I am lost in awe of Him! -Rumi
