Rumi : from al Majalis al Sab'at

Even if there is, in this universe, some sign, for the man of realization,
as there is, for each divine symbol, an interpreter in the mind.

And even if there is, some path for the bird to travel the desert, to reach that universe,
although there is, in the feathers and the wings of each bird, an obvious predicament.

However, it is still not permitted for just anyone to enter the Souq of Love,
otherwise, there would be thousands of caravans under its every cobblestone

from Majlis One
From al Majalis al Sab'at " The seven sittings"- 
 translated from the Arabic translation of Dr. Issa Ali al 'Akoob
