Rumi Poem | Type 7
I looked inwards
And the beauty of my own emptiness
Filled me until dawn
Why is this an important poem for type Sevens to use for reflection? Sevens search for continual external stimulation to fill the emptiness they feel inside. Their emotional passion of Gluttony is one way they do this, but Gluttony only satisfies for the moment and then the sense of being full is gone. It is the inward journey that truly satisfies.
