whenever you entrust your heart to a thought


Whenever you entrust your heart to a thought,
something will be taken from you inwardly
Whatever you think and acquire, the thief will
enter from that side where you feel safe
So busy yourself with that which is better, so
that something less may be taken from you.

Mathnawi II:1505-1507
William Chittick translation
