Rumi on Poison

One of my favourite reminders. Loved the representation of it.

 

 

What is Poison?
He replied with a beautiful answer – Anything which is more than our necessity is Poison. It may be Power, Wealth, Hunger, Ego, Greed, Laziness, Love, Ambition, Hate or anything

What is fear…..?
Non-acceptance of uncertainty.
If we accept that uncertainty, it becomes adventure…!

What is envy?
Non-acceptance of good in others. If we accept that good, it becomes inspiration…!

What is Anger?
Non-acceptance of things which are beyond our control.
If we accept, it becomes tolerance…!

What is hatred?
Non-acceptance of a person as he is. If we accept person unconditionally, it becomes love…!
