Advice from the 13th Century

By Rumi

“When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of distress and

If I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and
without any pain.

From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and
attracting me.

There is a great secret in this for anyone who can grasp it."

Rumi was a Persion poet who lived in 1207. His poetry is some of the most profound that's ever been written.
