COMFORTING YOUR SOUL

RUMI


With friends, even if you were in a fire,
it's like being in a garden

if you were with an enemy, by a bad luck,
even though it was in a garden, it's like being in a fire.

do not be egotitic with a friend
it will make him an enemy

if you do good to other people to please God
or to comfort your soul

you will find people friendly
and no malice or hatred will touch your heart

( Masnavi Rumi Vol. IV:1976-1980 )

Translated by Nasir Shamsi
