In Heaven is Thy Provision

“If continually you keep your hope
quivering like the willow in longing for Heaven,
spiritual water and fire will continually arrive
and increase your subsistence.
And if your longing carries you there, it will be no wonder.
Don’t pay attention to your weakness,
but to the intensity of your longing.
For this search is God’s pledge within you,
because every seeker deserves to find something of which she seeks.
Increase this search,
that your heart may escape from this bodily prison.
If your spirit shall not live without the body,
for whom is the blessing promised in the words:
in Heaven is your provision?‘”

By Mawlānā Jalāl ad-Dīn Rūmī
