Masnavi of Rumi. Beyond the stars…

Beyond the star and Stars in which there is no combust no sinister aspects,

Stars moving in other Heavens, not the seven heavens known to all,

Star immanent in the radiance of the Light of God, Neither joined to each other nor separate. Whoso hath his fortune from these Stars,

his soul drives off and consumes the unbelievers. God sprinkled His Light over all sprits, but only the blest held up their skirts to receive it. And, having gained that language of light, they turned their faces away from all but God.

That which is of the sea is going to the sea: it is going to the place where it came—

From the mountain the swift-rushing torrent, and from our body, the soul whose motion is inspired by love.
