Rumi

I will keep adding to this list.

1/ The hero gives a wooden sword to his son

Until he learns to use a real battle sword

Human love is a wooden sword

Until he learns to battle hurt with mercy.

2/ Animals grow fat from eating grass

People from power and fame.

3/ The mind is a caravanserai

Each morning, new guests arrive

All thoughts, happy or sad

Are guests. Welcome them.

4/ Like a caterpillar

we weave a cocoon of thoughts

doubts and fantasies

slowly suffocating ourselves.
