The wisdom of Rumi

 

Before the the frost

 

Longing is the core of mystery.
Longing itself brings the cure.
The only rule is,
Suffer the pain.

Your desire must be disciplined,
and what you want to happen
in time, sacrificed.


From: Rumi – The Essential Rumi

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
