The Temple Of Love – Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

The temple of love is not love itself; 

True love is the treasure, 

Not the walls about it. 

Do not admire the decoration, 

But involve yourself in the essence, 

The perfume that invades and touches you- 

The beginning and the end. 

Discovered, this replace all else, 

The apparent and the unknowable. 

Time and space are slaves to this presence.
