The Gift and the Giver

rumi

What does not come into man’s imagination is called a “gift” because whatever passes through his imagination is in proportion to his aspiration and his worth. However, God’s gift is in proportion to God’s worth Therefore, the gift is that which is suitable to God, not what is suitable to the imagination or ambition of God’s servant. “What no eye has seen nor ear heard nor has occurred to the mind of man”– that is, no matter how much eyes have seen, ears heard, or minds conceived the gifts you expect of Me, My gift is above and beyond all that.”

– Rumi
