Sufi Wisdom and Quotes (2)

What's the point of bringing gold to the gold mine, or water to the Ocean.

It's no good giving my heart and my soul because you already have these.
So- I've brought you a mirror.
Look at yourself and remember me.

- Jalaluddin Rumi

I was so moved reading this poem ... its really a wonderful piece from Rumi. A poem devoted to God, the ultimate Beloved. The expression is so intense and beautiful !!

A divine promise of reciprocal love and reminiscence.
