All your suffering comes from Rumi

All your suffering comes
from desiring
things that cannot be had.

Stop desiring
and you won’t suffer.

Unless you pass through here
You will never reach the beyond

The window determines
how much light enters the house,
even if the moon’s radiance fills
the east and the west.

Although your desire tastes sweet,
doesn’t the Beloved desire you
to be desireless?

The life of lovers is in death:
you’ll not win the Beloved’s heart
unless you lose your own.
