love’s confusing joy

Love = tree of happiness

If you want what visible reality
can give,
you’re an employee.
If you want the unseen world,
you’re not living your truth.
Both wishes are foolish,
but
you’ll be forgiven for forgetting
that what you really want is
love’s confusing joy.
Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi 
(1207 – 1273 )
