What is seen is not the Truth
What is cannot be said
Trust comes not without seeing
Nor understanding without words
The wise comprehends with knowledge
To the ignorant it is but a wonder
Some worship the formless God
Some worship His various forms
In what way He is beyond these attributes
Only the Knower knows
That music cannot be written
How can then be the notes
Says Kabir, awareness alone will overcome illusion.

Your task is not to seek for love,
but merely to seek and find
all the barriers within yourself
that you have built against it.

-Rumi

The world is a drama, staged in a dream.

Tilok Chand Mehroom from The Portrait of Mercy:

"To honour you is to honour all existence Guru Nanak
Your luminosity illuminates every particle Guru Nanak
Your estate endows the intoxication of enlightenment Guru Nanak
Your writings are the summit of worshipping truth Guru Nanak
Divine mercy streams down from your portrait Guru Nanak
Is it your portrait or is it a replica of kindness
Is it your portrait or is it an imprint of reality
Is it your portrait or is it an evidence of nobility
Is it your portrait or is it comfort for a troubled heart
Divine mercy streams down from your portrait Guru Nanak"

Rumi:

"I do not know myself. I am neither Christian nor Jew, neither Zoroastrian nor Muslim,
I am not from east or west, not from land or sea, not from the shafts of nature nor from
the spheres of the firmament, not of the earth, not of water, not of air, not of fire.
I am not from the world, not from beyond, not from heaven and not from hell.
My place is placeless, my trace is traceless, no body, no soul, I am from the soul of souls.
I have chased out duality, lived the two worlds as one.

There is some kiss we want
with our whole lives,
the touch of Spirit on the body.

Seawater begs the pearl
to break its shell.
And the lily, how passionately
it needs some wild Darling!

At night, I open the window
and ask the moon to come
and press its face against mine.
Breathe into me.
Close the language-door,
and open the love-window.

The moon won't use the door,
only the window.


Rumi
d. 1273

He dwells not only in temples and mosques --
The whole creation is his abode.
The whole world is bewitched by his tale,
but wise are those who are lost in his love.

Sarmad
