Seek to be Rumi

If your knowledge of fire has been turned
to certainty by words alone,
then seek to be cooked by the fire itself.

Don't abide in borrowed certainty.
There is no real certainty until you burn;
if you wish for this, sit down in the fire.

~ Rumi
from Rumi:Daylight,
by Camille and Kabir Helminski
