aphrodyte:

Drunk on Love ~ 

Be drunk on love, because love is all that exists;Without love, no one has the right to enter His house.They ask, “What is love?” Reply: “Giving up your self-will.” He who hasn’t given up his will isn’’t chosen. The lover’’s an emperor, the two worlds are at his feet: Does an emperor notice what is thrown in his path? It is Love and the Lover that live eternally. –Don’t lend your heart to anything else; all else is borrowed. How long will you go on and on embracing a corpse? Embrace the soul that is embraced by nothing else. - Jalal-ud-Din Rumi (Translated by Andrew Harvey from A Year of Rumi)

Drunk on Love ~ 

Be drunk on love, because love is all that exists;
Without love, no one has the right to enter His house.
They ask, “What is love?” Reply: “Giving up your self-will.” 
He who hasn’t given up his will isn’’t chosen. 
The lover’’s an emperor, the two worlds are at his feet: 
Does an emperor notice what is thrown in his path? 
It is Love and the Lover that live eternally. –
Don’t lend your heart to anything else; all else is borrowed. 
How long will you go on and on embracing a corpse? 
Embrace the soul that is embraced by nothing else.
