Rumi of the Day

Everyday I read a passage from works such as by Rumi to inspire me in creating my day. I'd like to share what I read today:

The Soul of Reality

How marvelous a lover is, for he gathers power, grows, and fills with vibrant energy from the image of his Beloved. This should not surprise you; think of how much perpetual strength the image of Layla fed Majnun.

Since the image of what is after all a transient beloved possesses so great a power to embolden the lover, why are you surprised that the Image of the Eternal Beloved should stream strength into the Lover, both here in this world and in the Invisible? That Image is not "Imagination" at all; it is the Soul of Reality.
