Discourse 71


DSC_0051, originally uploaded by Wolfiegoth.

The difference between birds on the wing, and
lovers of God, is that birds always fly in a certain
direction, while lovers of God fly on the wings of
their desire away from all directions.
Every horse has its stable, every beast its pen,
every bird its nest. And God knows best.
~Rumi
