Hello Rumi Tuesday! If the World Becomes a Wave-Tossed Sea… June 20, 2017

Hello Rumi Tuesday


pearl in the shell

If the world becomes
a wave-tossed sea,


I’ll go straight
to that darling pearl.


You set out on your travels
to perhaps make a profit.


I won’t leave this profit of truth
for any perhaps.


I’ve found the kernel,
I won’t crunch on that shell.


I’m in a safe place,
I won’t head into danger.


by Jalal id-din Rumi,
from Say Nothing,
translated by Iraj Anvar and Anne Twitty.


Is your world a wave-tossed sea?

Perhaps it is signalling you to dive deeper

into the depths of the Ocean,

through the portal of your heart

to the home of your own soul.

Find the safe shore

at the core of your own being.

Consume the kernels of truth

that God deposited within your shell

so that you may know yourself

and know the Truth of

the Essence of the One.
