PEACEFUL SEARCHING

IN a human being is such a love, a pain, an itch, a desire that, even if he were to possess a hundred thousand worlds, he would not rest or find peace. People work variously at all sorts of callings, and so forth, but they are not at peace because what they are seeking cannot be found. The beloved is called dil'aram because the heart finds peace through the beloved. How then can it find peace through anything else? All these other joys and objects of search are like a ladder. The rungs on the ladder are not places to stay but to pass through. The sooner one wakes up and becomes aware, the shorter the long road becomes and the less one's life is wasted on these "ladder rungs" (Rumi, Sign of the Unseen, 66)
