give yourself up without regret | meditative Rumi


listen, o drop,
give yourself up without regret,
and in exchange gain the OCEAN.

listen, o drop,
bestow upon yourself the honor,
and in the arms of the SEA be secure.
who indeed should be so fortunate?

an ocean wooing a drop
in GOD'S NAME, IN GOD'S NAME,
SELL AND BUY AT ONCE!

give a drop,
and take this SEA full of pearls.

- Rumi

may God bestow upon us, the sleeping ones, the blessed realization of Mevlana Rumi, connect us with his spiritual haal (hate) and bless his soul. may we all taste what it means to give up the drop and gain the OCEAN - Hu Allah. La ilaha illaAllah.

Balaa man 'aslama wajha-huu lillahi
wa huwa muhsinun
falahuuu 'ajruhuu 'inda Rabbih
Wa laa khawfun 'alayhim
wa laa hum yahzanuun.

Nay, but whosoever gives up his own desires
while serving God and does good acts,
his reward is with his Lord;
They shall have no fears
And neither shall they grieve.
-- Qur'an 2:112
