Rumi Poem | Type 1
If you are irritated by every rub
How will you be polished?
Why is this an important poem for type Ones to use for reflection? Ones search for serenity and acceptance, yet their ego structure has them think that it is their job to notice mistakes, big and small, and to correct them. This is an endless task and takes them far from the tranquility for which they yearn.
