The lover of this world…


1184863_664468870247516_752313635_nThe lover of this world is like the lover of a wall on which the sunbeams strike, who makes no effort and exertion to perceive that the radiance and splendour do not proceed from the wall, but from the orb of the sun in the Fourth Heaven; consequently he sets his whole heart on the wall, and when the sunbeams rejoin the sun (at sunset), he is left for ever in despair, and a bar is placed between them and that which they desire. ~

Mawlana Jalaluddin Muhammad Balkhi/Rumi
