You Were Born With Wings


You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?

Absorbed in this world, you’ve made it your burden.
Rise above this world.
There is another vision.
All your life you’ve paid attention to your experiences, but never to your Self.
Are you searching for your Soul?  Then come out of your prison.
Leave the stream and join the river that flows into the Ocean.
Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love.
It will not lead you to astray.
Let the beauty you seek be what you do.
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.
Question the scholars and philosophers, but God is beyond their understanding.
Then look in your Heart and it was there where God dwells that you will see;
God is nowhere else to be found.
Everything in the Universe is within You.

There is a link between matter and Spirit.
And your heart is looking for that path.
Consciousness is clear and pure like water.
And pure water is a perfect mirror for moonlight.

-Rumi
