Without Attempting To Be

…conquers without battle. It overcomes without moving. Love masters without effort. It knows without study. Love inspires without trying. It ‘is’ without attempting to be.

“Whispers of Love” by Rumi (Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī)
Love whispers to my ear,
“Better to be a prey
than a hunter.
Make yourself My fool.
Stop trying to be the sun
and become a speck!
Dwell at My door
and be homeless.
Don’t pretend to be a candle,
be a moth,
so you may taste
the savor of Life
and know the power
hidden in serving”.
