Start walking

Who gets up early to discover
The moment light begins?

Who finds us here

Circling bewildered - like atoms?

Who comes to a spring thirsty

And finds the moon reflected in it? Chase a deer

And end up everywhere!

An oyster opens his mouth to swallow

One drop - now there's a pearl

A Vagrant wanders through empty ruins

Suddenly - he's wealthy

But don't be satisfied

With poems and stories

Of how things have gone with others

Unfold your own mythos
Without complicated explanation

So everyone will understand
The passage,

We have opened you
Now - start walking...

Towards the Light

Your legs will get heavy and tired.
Then comes a moment of feeling...

The wings you've grown

Lifting you

Towards the Light
- Rumi
