secret of why flowers are painted in tints

when i play with you, my love
i understand why there is such a play
of colours on clouds, on water,
and why flowers are painted in tints.

when i sing to make you dance
i know why there is music in leaves,
and why waves send their chorus of voices
to the heart of the listening earth.

when you whisper sweet things to me,
i know why there is honey in the cup of the flower,
and why fruits are secretly filled
with sweet juice.

when i kiss your face to make you smile,
i understand what pleasure streams from the sky
in the morning light,
and what delight the summer breeze brings to my body
and i kiss to make you smile.

- Rumi's poetry, version by Deepak Chopra
from A Gift of Love, Volume 2

Sufi mystic poet Jami tells the story of a seeker who went to ask a sage for guidance on the Sufi way. The sage counseled, "if you have never trodden the path of love, go away and fall in love; then come back and see us." The sufis knows the ancient, ancient secret truth that 'the creation is made of Love'.

Thats the secret of why flowers are painted in tints, and of why there is honey in cup of flowers. The awesome play of colors in nature are playful gifts of His Love. Darwinian understanding may offer us a different view of reality of why flowers are painted in tints where we are told that its because to attract the bees and the insects to help pollination, to help evolution. Well, sufis don't need to prove Darwin wrong because truth is multifaceted, yet people of certainty, the sufis knows the essential truth behind the 'apparent'. Because in order to connect everything, God implanted a need in everything that is created and this connection is connection of love and the symbiotic inter-penetrating needs are the interplay of love. And innumerable symbiosis in nature are the innumerable ayah (signs) of the Open Book (the Open Quran) for us to read (iqra).
