This is my yet another attempt to understand the mystic words by a great soul,Rumi(A.S), but today I feel it is more a futile effort! I have read this quote many times to understand what he really means by it! and I am still sure I don’t get it 100% ,but I will not give up!!
Pour in your ideas what you feel after reading this quote and it might help me to understand it better !
and this is what I feel for it until now:
By this quote I feel Rumi is asking us to be more warm in our hearts for others and for ourselves.Our hearts have become cold and hard like ice! We no longer feel the things as greatly as we did in our childhood.Those small little joys of life are no more joyful when we used to admire the beauty in the soap bubbles and wonder at our paper boats in the ripples of rain water! We miss our selfless self and great time called childhood.
Why don’t we let go of our pride for the things we would just leave here before our final departure ! We are all travelers in this world with limited provisions,the security will not allow anything to take with us except few! so before we board our final flight, Why can’t we let go of that extra baggage of false ego which stops us from so many good things in life and afterlife too.
Let us forgive someone today and ask forgiveness from someone, melt that ego and ‘wash off this false self from yourself’ ,
Be true as your soul deeply long for it to be, be good as you wish someone to be to you!
Let it all wash away that put burden on our souls and make our hearts heavy! Let the love flow and feelings flow out ! Let it keep us moving and this moving should be more in our minds and hearts .
