It may be that the satisfaction I need depends on my going away, so that when I've gone and come back, I'll find it at home. RUMI

A thousand half-loves must be forsaken to take one whole heart home. RUMI

Something opens our wings. Something makes boredom and hurt disappear. Someone fills the cup in front of us: We taste only sacredness. RUMI

Flow down and down in always widening rings of being. RUMI
