Cling to your real self, …. quit this …. dual self.

” The truth is …. yourself, …..
but not ….
your mere bodily self, ….

Your real self …. is higher than ‘you’ and ‘me ‘.
This visible ‘you’ which you fancy to be yourself
Is limited in place, …. the real self is not limited.

Why, …. O pearl, ….
linger you trembling in your shell?
Esteem not yourself mere sugar-cane,
…. but real sugar.

This outward you …. is foreign ….
to your ….
…. real you; ….

Cling to your real self, ….. quit this ….

…… dual self. ”

– Mewlana RUMI
