Let the beauty you seek be what you do

I’d like to share with you this poem by Rumi, of whom I’m a huge fan, may God bless his soul,

Absorbed in this world,
you’ve made it your burden.
Rise above this world;
There is another vision.
All your life you’ve paid attention to your experiences,
but never to your Self.
Are you searching for your Soul?
Then come out of your prison.
Leave the stream,
and join the river that flows into the Ocean;
It will not lead you astray.
Let the beauty you seek be what you do.

How beautiful! Rumi was indeed a genius poet. Thank you so much for sharing.
