Set Out Now

3 Jan

Set out now, while you’re strong, on the heart’s vast plain:
You’ll never discover joy on the plain of the body.
The heart’s the only house of safety, my friends:
It has fountains, and rose gardens within rose gardens.
Turn to the heart and go forward, travelers of the night;
there’s where you’ll find trees and streams of living water.

– Jalal-ud-Din Rumi
