Quotes From The Road #89

April 22, 2010 by  

“Passion can restore healing power, and prune weary boughs to new life. The energy of passion is everything!

There are fake satisfactions that simulate passion.

They taste cold and delicious, but they just distract you and prevent you from the search. They say,

“I will relieve your passion.

Take me. Take me!”

Run from false remedies that dilute your energy. Keep it rich and musky.”

Rumi, 13th century Indian poet, from the poem In Baghdad, Dreaming of Cairo: In Cairo, Dreaming of Baghdad in the book The Essential Rumi Translated by Coleman Barks
