“Observe the qualities of expansion
in the fingers of your hand:
surely after the closing of the fist
comes the opening.
If the fingers were always closed
or always open,
the owner would be crippled.
Your movement is governed by these two qualities:
they are as necessary to you
as two wings are to a bird.”
-from Rumi: Jewels of Rememberance translated by Camile and Kabir Helminski
