Love’s confusing joy

by Coleman Barks

If you want what visible reality 

can give, you are an employee.

If you want the unseen world, 

you are not living with your truth.

Both wishes are foolish, 

but you will be forgiven for forgetting

that what you really want is 

love’s confusing joy.

- from A Year with Rumi, edited by Coleman Barks
