Discourse 71 [Discourses of Rumi]


Excerpted from Discourses of Rumi or Fihi ma Fihi

Discourse 71

The difference between birds on the wing, and lovers of God, is that birds always fly in a certain direction, while lovers of God fly on the wings of their desire away from all directions. Every horse has its stable, every beast its pen, every bird its nest. And God knows best.
