Jalal al-Din Rumi Quote – “Always check your inner state…”

Always check your inner state
with the lord of your heart.
Copper doesn’t know it’s copper,
until it’s changed to gold.

Your loving doesn’t know its majesty,
until it knows its helplessness.

If the beloved is everywhere,
the lover is a veil,
but when living itself becomes
the Friend, lovers disappear.

Jalal al-Din Rumi (1207 – 1273)
