Rumi Poem

Self portrait, in shadow

Let go of your worries 
and be completely clear-hearted, 
like the face of a mirror 
that contains no images. 
If you want a clear mirror, 
behold yourself 
and see the shameless truth, 
which the mirror reflects. 
If metal can be polished 
to a mirror-like finish, 
what polishing might the mirror 
of the heart require?
Between the mirror and the heart 
is this single difference: 
the heart conceals secrets, 
while the mirror does not. 

 - Rumi
