Rumi - Misc - Drink up



Type of spiritual experience

A description of the experience

Rumi – Drink up

Go seek a love like this, if you truly live
Or else remain the slave to time
And whatever state you seek
Your lips so dry, must always drink
Drink up and up and up
Till dry-lipped still, you reach the source
For all  your skills have given wealth
Your guests, your handicrafts and works
Don't they begin in thought
Begin beside the river!

The source of the experience

Rumi, Jalaladdin
