    Whoever Brought Me Here All day I think about

    it, then at night I say it.Where did I come from, and what am I supposed to be doing?I have no idea.My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that,and I intend to end up there.This drunkenness began in some other tavern.When I get back around to that place,I’ll be...

    The Guest House This being human is a guest

    house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes As an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they're a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still treat each guest...

    I'm A Believer

    I don't think anyone has done of defining love, man to woman, man to man, man to God, than Rumi. Whenever I read his words, I feel like I'm floating above the mire of existence, up on a cloud where true beauty lives.  Poet, philosopher, sage, mystic, I don't think the word has...

    Only Breath

    Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu Buddhist, Sufi, or Zen. Not any religion or cultural system. I am not from the east or the west, not out of the ocean or up from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not composed of elements at all. I do not exist, am not an entity...

    Rumi If you feel any desire

    for me, then say so. If you live without love, alone, I want to know. If your heart holds a place for me, then say so. Say if it 's so, or say no, but tell me the truth. #1582, from Rumi's Kolliyaat-e Shams-e Tabrizi

    A Moment Of Happiness

    A Moment Of Happiness A moment of happiness, you and I sitting on the verandah, apparently two, but one in soul, you and I. We feel the flowing water of life here, you and I, with the garden's beauty and the birds singing. The stars will be watching us, and we will show them what...

    The Loverswill drink wine night

    and day.They will drink until they cantear away the veils of intellect andmelt away the layers of shame and modesty.When in Love,body, mind, heart and soul don’t even exist.Become this,fall in Love, and you will not be separated again.

    Soul Receives From SoulSoul receives from soul
