Rumi, on patience versus anxiety.

When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety; if I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain.

From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me. There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.
