Seek the owner of the Heart...BY RUMI

The Beloved said, 
"God doesn't pay attention to your outer form:
so in your improvising, seek the owner of the Heart."

God says, 
"I regard you through the owner of the Heart,
not because of prostrations in prayer
or the giving of wealth in charity."

The owner of the Heart becomes a six-faced mirror:
through him God looks out upon all the six directions.

~ Rumi
