I Love The Poetry Of Rumi

    There is a secret medicine given only to those

    who hurt so hard they can't hope. The hopers would feel slighted if they knew. Look as long as you can at the friend you love, no matter whether that friend is moving away from you or coming back toward you. ~ Rumi // from "My Worst Habit" CB

    It is Love that makes people happy.

    It is Love that fills happiness with joy. It is Love that birthed me, not my mother. A hundred blessings and praises to that Mother! Your fragrance is always with me. Your face never leaves my sight. Day and night I've been longing for You. My life is spent, but my desire for...

    Tempted for so long to have a vision of you,

    I myself have turned into a vision. You have seized the fortress of my heart, your love arrows can split even a mountain, how can my poor heart ever escape them? I don't even dare to mention your name and call you "My Moon" jealous that others may discover you. ~ Rumi

    “Your task is not to seek

    for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” ― Rumi

    Love brings the dead back to life.

    Love transforms the King into a slave. Love is the consummation of Gnosis. How could a fool sit on such a throne?

    There are more fake gurus

    Mirror Image

    "Loneliness and solitude are two different things. When you are lonely, it is easy to delude yourself into believing that you are on the right path. Solitude is better for us, as it means being alone without feeling lonely, but eventually it is the best to find a person who will...

    The Lover

    How can you ever hope to know the Beloved Without becoming in every cell the Lover? And when you are the Lover at last, you don't care. Whatever you know or don't - only Love is real. ~Rumi

    Neither this body am I,

    "All religions, all this singing,

    one song. The differences are just illusion and vanity. The Sun's light looks a little different on this wall than it does on that wall, and a lot different on this other one, but it's still One Light." ~Rumi.

    Love is reckless; not reason.

    Reason seeks a profit. Love comes on strong, consuming herself, unabashed. Yet, in the midst of suffering, Love proceeds like a millstone, hard surfaced and straightforward. Having died of self-interest, she risks everything and asks for nothing. Love gambles away every gift...
