Rumi on transformation


I love this quote by Rumi, the Persian poet and philosopher. “If you are irritated by every rub, how will your mirror be polished?” How can we learn, live and grow to become our greatest aspirations if every opportunity for growth is an irritant? Not that it is easy to be on the receiving end all that polishing. But the result, ahh the results, they are the reason we pursue situations where we can be polished.

If you could, what could you do?

Just a guy trying to simplify his life in a complicated world. Finding out along the way that much of what he thought was real, is little more than an illusion created by others and sustained by his own mind.
