these selections from the poetry of Rumi express the courage and intensity needed to overcome our ego-imprisonment. Much of Rumi's poetry has circled around the mystery of surrender. Some of it expresses a longing and even a bewilderment but there is also much that expresses the discipline clarity and intensity that true surrender requires. the lion is Rumi's image for that fierce intensity that recognizes no authority except the highest truth.
