Thoughts on life by Rumi

On my Twitter feed I had the pleasure to read this lovely quote. It is simple and profound.

Every leaf that grows will tell you:
What you sow will bear fruit.
So if you have any sense my friend,
Don’t plant anything but Love.

Rumi

What a simple recipe for a peaceful life? Don’t Plant anything but love.

  1. There’s a similar thought in the Bible: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up” (Galatians 6:7-9).

    1. Wow. Very deep. You know your bible well.
      So could you help me understand this line in plain English “Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; ” I think i may know a similar saying, advise. But, I am totally sure I get this first. If you could help me understand. Thank you.

      1. It means if you do things for your own physical desires, bad things may happen to you. For an easy example–imagine eating lots of junk because you crave ice cream and burgers. You’ll get fat and sick. Or just being plain selfish and not thinking of other people, the same thing will happen to us.
