The Eyes Are The Mirror Of The Soul
Those with mirror-like hearts
do not depend on fragrance and color:
they behold Beauty in the moment.
They've cracked open the shell of knowledge
and raised the banner
of the eye of certainty.
Thought is gone in a flash of light. (RUMI)
Though the worlds are eighteen thousand and more,
not every eye can see them.
Every atom is indeed a place of the vision of God,
but so long as it is unopened,
who says, "There is a door"? (RUMI)
When the mirror of your heart becomes clear and pure,
you'll behold images which are outside this world.
You will see the image and the image-Maker,
both the carpet of the spiritual expanse
and the One who spreads it. (RUMI)
