You have arrived at the dungeons of the heart; stop here.
You have seen the moon and lived; stop here.
You have dragged your rags everywhere; stop here.
You have heard so much talk, so much; stop here.
Gaze at this beauty now, it is His Vision
That makes you visible or invisible; stop here.
The milk running in your breast
Is the milk you drank in from His; stop here.
- Jalal-ud-Din Rumi
