“Surely there is a window from heart to heart;”

Rumi & The Firm
A quiet night out in Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia (August 2016)
“Surely there is a window from heart to heart:
they are not separate and far from each other.

Though two earthenware lamps are not joined,
their light mingles.
No lover seeks union without the beloved seeking;
but the love of lovers makes the body thin as a bowstring,
while the love of loved ones makes them shapely and pleasing.
When the lightning of love for the beloved
has shot into this heart, know that there is love in that heart.
When love for God has been doubled in your heart,
there is no doubt that God has love for you.”
— [Mathnawi III, 4391-4396]
