Fleeing

"Are you fleeing from Love because of a single humiliation?
What do you know of Love except the name?"

Rumi

Very true. I was having a similar conversation with a friend just yesterday :)

So beautiful ... couple of lines took shape inspired by quote ...

In the house of love
there is no place for two
burning in fire of separation
I saw the ashes of my ego
and a liberating revelation
I am not me ..I am you ...

Lovely poetry. The influence of Rumi is very obvious. :)

P.S. Since you have not enabled access to your profile for the visitors, i can't see your blog; i have forgotten its link. Can you give me its URL?

awais .. I have emailed you the URL of my blog .. Yes you are right what i wrote is just a smaller version of what Rumi has written so beautifully ..

Two Friends
-------------
A certain person came to the Friend's door

and knocked.

"Who's there?"

"It's me."

The Friend answered, "Go away. There's no place

for raw meat at this table."



The individual went wandering for a year.

Nothing but the fire of separation

can change hypocrisy and ego. The person returned

completely cooked,

walked up and down in front of the Friend's house,

gently knocked.

"Who is it?"

"You."

"Please come in, my self,

there's no place in this house for two.

The doubled end of the thread is not what goes through

the eye of the needle.

It's a single-pointed, fined-down, thread end,

not a big ego-beast with baggage."
