Be With Those Who Help Your Being

Rating: 3.0
Be with those who help your being.
Don't sit with indifferent people, whose breath
comes cold out of their mouths.
Not these visible forms, your work is deeper.

A chunk of dirt thrown in the air breaks to pieces.
If you don't try to fly,
and so break yourself apart,
you will be broken open by death,
when it's too late for all you could become.

Leaves get yellow. The tree puts out fresh roots and makes them green. Why are you so content with a love that turns you yellow? /// love for you O great

Robert Frost said, world will be destroyed not by fire, but by ice., ice of insouciance. So let us remain standing and welcome, cajole our people to be in perpetual readiness to work.

Be with those who help your being. I could have used hearing those words at different stages of my life. I suspect we all could have. But had we heard them, would we have heeded them? When I was young, I didn't have the wisdom to employ this saying into my life. I find that now that I am older, I still lack wisdom but this time the wisdom to recognize the difference between those who only appear to help your being and those who would really help your being.

Good advice written centuries ago that still holds true today. No rhyme, but that's what happens with translations.

Don't hang with negative people, people that hold you back. Instead surround yourself with relationships that help you to become a better person. Rumi was a smart man.
