The Skirt of God

This is an excerpt from a Rumi poem that I really love and wanted to share. To me it speaks of faith in God as the greatest shelter, and the joy that comes from living in dharma.

Liberated from suffering and the search,
I have tied myself to the skirt of God.
If I fly, I look at the summits I ascend.
If I go around in a circle
I observe the axis on which I revolve.
If I am dragged by a burden,
I know where I go.
For I am the moon, and the sun is my guide.

Rumi Prabhu ki Jai!
