Poetry for the Soul
Good poetry can soothe the soul and lift the spirit like nothing else. Take for example, this lovely poem by Rumi:
The Net of Gratitude
Giving thanks for abundance
is sweeter than the abundance itself:
Should one who is absorbed with the Generous One
be distracted by the gift?
Thankfulness is the soul of beneficence; abundance is but the husk, for thankfulness brings you to the place where
the Beloved lives.
Abundance yields heedlessness;
thankfulness brings alertness:
hunt for bounty with the net of gratitude.
