A Garden Beyond Paradise



Everything you see has its roots

in the Unseen world.

The forms may change,

yet the essence remains the same.

Every wondrous sight will vanish,

Every sweet word will fade.

But do not be disheartened,

The Source they come from is eternal –

Growing, branching out,

giving new life and new joy.

Why do you weep? –

That Source is within you,

And this whole world

is springing up from it.


- Rumi
