MYSTICAL POEMS: “Patience” by Rumi

images.jpgbvcx

Know that this troublesome body is like a coat of armor:
comfortable neither in winter or in summer.

Yet still this bad associate is good for you because of the patience you must show in overcoming its desires, for the exercise of patience expands the heart with spiritual peace.

The patience shown by the moon to the dark night keeps it illumined; the patience shown by the rose to the thorn keeps it fragrant.

—Rumi
