Lord, said David, since you do not need
us, why did you create these two worlds?
Reality replied: O prisoner of time, I
was a secret treasure of kindness and
generosity, and I wished this treasure
to be known, so I created a mirror: its
shining face, the heart; its darkened back,
the world; The back would please you if
you've never seen the face. (…)
Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi, from the poem ‘Be Lost in a Call’ in Love is a Stranger (translated by Kabir Helminski). Threshold Books, 1993.
