Rumi: Those Who Don’t Feel This Love

If it is love you are looking for, take a knife and cut off the head of fear.  It is a time when love itself is willing to teach the truth directly.  To find love, destroy your old patterns. — Rumi

Those who don’t feel this Love
pulling them like a river,
those who don’t drink dawn
like a cup of spring water
or take in sunset like supper,
those who don’t want to change,
let them sleep.

This Love is beyond the study of theology,
that old trickery and hypocrisy.
I you want to improve your mind that way,
sleep on.

I’ve given up on my brain.
I’ve torn the cloth to shreds
and thrown it away.
If you’re not completely naked,
wrap your beautiful robe of words
around you,

and sleep.

Rumi – Love said to me
