Rumi: With us, the name of everything

Rumi: With us, the name of everything
Photo: Porters from Qajar, Iran.



​With us, the name of everything
Is its outward appearance;
With the Creator,
The name of each thing is its inward reality.
In the eye of Moses, the name of his rod was “staff;” 
In the eye of the Creator, its name was “dragon.”
In brief, that which we are in the end 
Is our real name with God.

(Rumi, trans. Camille and Kabir Helminski)
