We must become ignorant of all that we have been taught
And be instead bewildered.
Run from what is profitable and comfortable.
If you drink those liqueurs
You will spill the spring waters of your real life.
Forget safety. Live where you fear to live.
Destroy your reputation, be notorious.
I have tried prudent planning for long enough.
From now on I live mad.
One thought on “Wisdom for 50”
Love Rumi… ‘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.’ – this is one of my Rumi quotes I aspire to live by.
