Real Heaven

Hell and heaven are not to be found in future,

for they are now, present.

When we love each other selflessly,

it is real heaven,

and when we are at war with each other and

spread hatred that is the real hell.

Shams-i-Tabrīzī  was spiritual instructor  or guru of Rumi.

chemistry of love

The chemistry of mind is different from the chemistry of love.
The mind is careful, suspicious, he advances little by little.
He advises “Be careful, protect yourself”
Whereas love says “Let yourself, go!”
The mind is strong, never falls down,
while love hurts itself, falls into ruins.
But isn’t it in ruins that we mostly find the  ?
A broken heart hides so many treasures.
