The Only Certain Refuge

"The whole world is racing in the wrong direction
For everyone is terrified of non-existence
That is, in reality, the only certain refuge.
How should we try to win real awareness?
By renouncing all knowing.
How should we look for salvation?
By giving up our personal salvation.
How should we search for real existence?
By giving up our existence.
How should we search for the fruit of the spirit?
By not always greedily stretching out our hands."

--RUMI, from Daily OM A Year of Rumi

Not much else to say except "I love this one" and "Amen Brother Rumi!" 

Have a great Labor Day weekend.
