There is a window between heart and heart:
They are never separate like two bodies.
Two lamps may not be united in their form-
But their light merges into each other.
No lover ever searched for Union
If his Beloved is not also seeking him.
The love of lovers makes them thin;
The Beloved's love makes them full and shining.
When the lightning of love for the Beloved
Falls from heaven and strikes this heart-
Know that love is also firing that heart,
And when the love for Him brims over in your heart,
Know that love for you is also brimming in His.
Can the sound of clapping come only from one hand?
When a thirsty man moans, "O water, O delicious water!"
This thirst that is in all our souls
Is the Water drawing us always to It.
We belong to It, and It belongs to us.


(Rumi)
