Search the Darkness by Rumi

Sit with your friends, don’t go back to sleep.
Don’t sink like a fish to the bottom of the sea.
Surge like an ocean, don’t scatter yourself like a storm.
Life’s waters flow from darkness. Search the darkness, don’t run from it.
Night travelers are full of light, and you are too: don’t leave this companionship.
Be a wakeful candle in a golden dish, don’t slip into the dirt like quicksilver.
The moon appears for night travelers, be watchful when the moon is full.
