Catch The Scent

July 9, 2013

Rumi Masnavi spiritual booksCatch the Scent

Whether one moves slowly or with speed,
the one who is a seeker will be a finder.
Always seek with your whole self,
for the search is an excellent guide on the way.
Though you are lame and limping,
though your figure is bent and clumsy,
always creep towards the One.
Make that One your quest.
By speech and by silence and by fragrance,
catch the scent of the King everywhere.
— Rumi’s Masnavi – Book III, Pgs. 978-81
