Eve

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on buddhist, elements, eve, hindu, jew, muslim, religion, twoworlds, and zen

Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu, Buddhist, sufi, or zen. Not any religion
or cultural system. I am not from the East or the West, not out of the ocean or up

I belong to the beloved, have seen the two worlds as one and that one call to and know,
first, last, outer, inner, only that breath breathing human being.

Mevlana Rumi (1207 - 1273)
