Rumi: Hollow drum of words

“Those who conquer their ego before death become mentors of the angels and protectors of the poor. They have glimpsed Spirit and know how to live. Shams, what road you took departing by which secret way did you return? Was it the same the souls take each night leaving behind a town of empty cages? A bird with tied wings cannot fly only a soul free from attachments can reach the higher planes from where the truth can be seen. But let us not disturb the silence with the hollow drum of words.”

—Rumi.
