Rumi on the heart & the house of light

‘I will never leave this house of light,
I will never leave this blessed town
for here I have found my love
and here I will stay for the rest of my life.

If this world turns into a sea of trouble
I will brave the waves and steer the ship of my mind
To the safe shore of love.

If you are a seeker looking for profit,
Go on and may God be with you,
But I am not willing to exchange my truth;
I have found the heart and will never leave
This house of light.’

Rumi
