Those Who Don't Feel This Love - Rumi

    Those who don't feel this love
    pulling them like a river
    those who don't drink dawn
    like a cup of spring water
    or take sunset like supper
    those who don't want to change
    let them sleep...

    This Love is beyond the study of theology
    that old trickery and hypocrisy
    If you want to improve your mind that way
    sleep on.

    I've given up on my brain
    I've torn the cloth to shreds
    and thrown it away.

    If you're not completely naked
    wrap your beautiful robe of words around you
    and sleep.

    ~Jellaludin Rumi
