On Seeking

If you are seeking, seek us with joy
For we live in the kingdom of joy.
Do not give your heart to anything else
But to the love of those who are clear joy,
Do not stray into the neighbourhood of despair.
For there are hopes: they are real, they exist --
Do not go in the direction of darkness --
I tell you: suns exist.

- Jalal-ud-Din Rumi

Commentary

Follow your urge to seek
Follow it into the light
Follow it with Joy
Follow it wherever it leads
The path will fork and fork again
Along its way
Sometimes it shall be a mighty road
At others barely discernable
You shall need to learn the skills
Of the Spiritual Ranger
To follow its many twists and turns
To choose the right fork
But always remember this:
There is not only one way
Each soul has his own 
And what is most important
Is to discern your nature
And be true; sincere
For within each soul
As sure as the Sun is light
Lies the secret of the way;
An answer to your urge
Sometimes a glowing sign
Sometimes a silent whisper
Sometimes in certainty and joy
Sometimes in doubt and despair
I cannot tell you where to go
Or of where you shall be travelling
Nor yet how to get there
But take fortitude in my words
And set out into the light
With joy.
