Whispers From God, a Poem by Rumi

Love (God) calmly and quietly whispers into my ear:
"It's better to be hunted than being the hunter.
Don't make a fool out of yourself,
be proud of who you are.
Let go of acting like the sun, be an atom.
Don't pretend to be the candle, be a moth.
Go become homeless!
Come live by the Gate of My House!
So you can taste the true flavors of life,
So you can clearly find the deeply hidden kingdom within."

حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي

عشق می گوید به گوشم پست پست
صید بودن خوشتر از صیادی است
گول من کن خویش را و غرّه شو
آفتابی را رها کن ذرّه شو
بر درم ساکن شو و بی خانه باش
دعوی شمعی مکن پروانه باش
تا ببینی چاشنیّ زندگی
 سلطنت بینی نهان در بندگی
