O pilgrim, where have you been?
Where are you now?
While you have been searching the world
the Beloved has been here all along
waiting for you.
Let the caravan carry you home
to your deepest heart’s desire.
The treasure you sought was buried in your own garden.
Come home, o wanderer, and behold the face in the mirror.
Look behind the eyes and see the One
who has been searching for you.
You are seen;
you are known
and you are beloved.
If your seeking has brought you here at last,
you know that there is nowhere else to go
and nothing more to say.
- Jellaludin Rumi
