Key To The Castle

The time has come
to turn your heart
into a Temple of Fire.

Your essence is gold
hidden in the dust,

To reveal its splendour
You need to burn
in the fire of love.

When compassion
fills my heart
Free from all desire,

I sit quietly
like the earth.

My silent cry
echoes like thunder
throughout the Universe.

There is a way
from your heart to mine
And my heart knows this,

Because it is clean
and pure like water.

When the water is still
like a mirror
It will behold the Moon

~ Maulana Jalaluddin Mohammad Balkhi Rumi
