Words of Wisdom


Let go of your worries
and be completely clear-hearted,
like the face of a mirror
that contains no images.
If you want a clear mirror,
behold yourself
and see the shameless truth,
which the mirror reflects.
If metal can be polished
to a mirror-like finish,
what polishing might the mirror
of the heart require?
Between the mirror and the heart
is this single difference:
the heart conceals secrets,
while the mirror does not.

  1. Beautiful poem by Rumi ... although I wonder whether the heart can contain secrets. It might tell itself it can, though when it comes down to it, I don't think it can lie to itself :).

    Lovely blog. I love the light, whimsical feel.

    Oh, and I didn't know you live in the UK! So cool!

    Love and light.
