MYSTICAL POEMS: “Your heavy bag” by Rumi




If you are lugging a heavy bag,
do not fail to look inside it
to see whether what is inside is bitter or sweet.

If it is really worth bringing along, bring it;
otherwise, empty your sack
and redeem yourself from fruitless effort.

Only put into your sack
that which is worth bringing.

  1. Oh! cute little darling and the words are so apt with this picture, Amira. Only put in your sack what is worth keeping rest is not required. Rumi and his divine words.

    1. Thank you so much dear Kamal! Yes, indeed, let us empty ourselves from those heavy burdens and baggage we carry around, let us b light in our journey and turn frowns into smiles, as the wisdom of Rumi put it so simply! 🙂 ❤


      1. Yes and I agree totally with your words Amira to live a wonderful life of freedom. Rumi and his wisdom that we need to live with. Welcome 😊😊😊😊😊
