    There are more fake gurus

    and false teachers in this world than the number of stars in the visible universe. Don’t confuse power-driven, self-centered people with true mentors. A genuine spiritual master will not direct your attention to himself or herself and will not expect absolute obedience or...

    My ex "introduced" me to Rumi's poetries.

    Since then I became Rumi's fan.

    I wonder from these thousand of "me's",

    which one am I? Listen to my cry, do not drown my voice I am completely filled with the thought of you. Don't lay broken glass on my path I will crush it into dust. I am nothing, just a mirror in the palm of your hand, reflecting your kindness, your sadness, your anger. If you...

    To The Beloved On The Last Night

    to Rumi In the dark a woman knits across the table, Her needles click softly & tenderly. The smell of roses are rich & sweet, The pulsing blood of moving air. The old pepper tree shudders & whispers, The full moon spills silver into my hands. Shadow, what do you know? The...

    Be With Those Who Help

    Be with those who help your being. Don’t sit with indifferent people, whose breath comes cold out of their mouths. Not these visible forms, your work is deeper. A chunk of dirt thrown in the air breaks to pieces. If you don’t try to fly, and so break yourself apart, you will...

    My heart, sit only with those who know

    Neither this body am I,

    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
