Yogic thought for the day

Sai, my husband, picked up this wonderful Rumi book the other day. It is illustrated with these fantastic Middle eastern paintings -- fabulous like:) I find the translation (by Philip Dunn, Manuela D. Mascetti, R. A Nicholson) a bit stilted and odd in the transition.. Yet, some lines are evocative, simply because with Rumi, you cannot go wrong:)

Here is one line:

Why did God make reality so shy?

Such a lyrical way of saying we have no clue of what is real...
I wish, I want, I yearn... Phew....Between the knowing and experiencing, one lifetime!
