spiritual work

A Quote by Gourasana on people, spiritual work, intelligence, and effort

People turn over their lives to spiritual work to try to escape, and want all their problems to go away, be solved; but spiritual life is hard and takes all your effort. Keep your intelligence about you.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on spiritual work

Work. Keep digging your well.
Don't think about getting off from work.
Water is there somewhere.
Submit to daily practice.
Your loyalty to that
Is a ring at the door.
Keep knocking, and the joy inside
Will eventually open a window
and look out to see who's there.

Mevlana Rumi (1207 - 1273)
