This book of daily readings from Rumi is inspirational.
When Rumi died in 1273, members of all religions came to his funeral. No matter what one’s religious beliefs are, Rumi’s poetry help deepen the connection between the human and the divine. The entry for February 10th says:
There is a path from me to you
that I am constantly looking for,
so I try to keep clear and still
as water does with the moon.
