On Resurrection Day – Rumi

On Resurrection Day your body testifies against you.

Your hand says, “I stole money.” Your feet, “I went where I shouldn’t.” Your genitals, “Me too.”

Your lips, “I said meanness.”

They will make your praying sound hypocritical. Let the body’s doings speak openly now, without your saying a word, as a student’s walking behind a teacher says, “This one knows more clearly than I the way.”
