You must ask for what you really want. The universal message of Rumi is a hopeful alternative to the ignorance and lack of spirituality in modern times. When you find Love, you will find your Self. Live in silence. I choose to hold you in my dreams, for me in dreams, you have no ends.
Every morning is a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes. Welcome and entertain them all. He may be clearing you out for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes,. This universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you are already that.
The way the night knows itself with the moon, be that with me. Be the rose nearest to the thorn that I am. I want to feel myself in you when you taste food, in the arc of your mallet when you work, when you visit friends, when you go up on the roof by yourself at night. I have lost all my sobriety. From trees and blossoms, I inhale only your fragrance. Drunk with the ecstasy of love, I can no longer tell the difference.
Because the idol is your face,. I have become an idolater. Because the wine is from your cup,. I've become a drunkard. In the existence of your love,. I have become non-existent. This non-existence, linked to you,. I have become the giver of light. It is love that holds everything together,. Once they were particles of light. They are the privileged lovers who create a new world with their eyes of burning passion.
Dancing is not just getting up painlessly, like a leaf blown on the wind; dancing is when you tear your heart out. I am your moon and your moonlight too. I am your flower garden and your water too. I have come all this way, eager for you Without shoes or shawl. I want to make you laugh. To kill all your worries. To love you and t o nourish you. I want to hold you close like a lute So we can cry out with loving. Would you rather throw stones at a mirror? I am your mirror, and here are the stones.
In the orchard and rose garden I long to see your face. In the taste of sweetness I long to kiss your lips. You are the essence of the essence,. The intoxication of love. I long to sing your praises but stand mute with the agony of wishing in my heart.
I am bewildered by the magnificence of your beauty. My heart has burned with passion and has searched forever. In my vertigo, in my dizziness, in my drunken haze,. I saw myself as the source of existence,. I was there at the beginning and I was the spirit of love. Suddenly the drunken sweetheart appeared out of my door. She drank a cup of ruby wine and sat by my side. Seeing and holding the lockets of her hair, my face became all eyes, and my eyes all hands!
Praise God for these two insomnia And the difference between them! My body my senses my mind hunger for your taste.
I can sense your presence in my heart. I wait with silent passion for one gesture,. Then come out of your own prison. Leave the stream and join the river that flows into the ocean. The wine we really drink is our own blood. Our bodies ferment in these barrels.
We give everything for a glass of this. We give our minds for a sip. Come to the orchid in Spring. There is light and wine, and sweethearts. If you do not come, these do not matter. If you do come, these do not matter. The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don't go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want. People are going back and forth across the doorsill. The door is round and open. The same wind that uproots trees makes the grass shine. The lordly wind loves. Never brag of being strong. The axe doesn't worry how thick the branches are. It cuts them to pieces. But not the leaves. It leaves the leaves alone. In truth everything and everyone. Our seeking is His seeking.
We search for Him here and there,. Sitting by His side, we ask: Everyone is so afraid of death,. What strikes the oyster shell doesn't damage the pearl.
Not Christian or Jew or Muslim,. 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,. I do not exist, am not an entity in this world or the next, did not descend from Adam or Eve or any origin story. My place is placeless, a trace of the traceless. Neither body nor soul, as I belong to the Beloved. I have seen the two worlds as one and that one call to and know, first, last, outer, inner, only that breath breathing human being.
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing. I'll meet you there. When your soul lies down in that grass. Ideas, language, even the phrase "each other". Go my friend. Bestow your love Even on your foes. If you touch their hearts What do you think will happen?
Let the beauty of what you love be what you do. There are thousands of wines. Don't think all ecstasies are the same! Jesus was lost in his love for God. His donkey was drunk with barley.
For ages you have come and gone. For ages you have run from the pain and forfeited the ecstasy. So come, return to the root of the root of your own soul. Although you appear in earthly form Your essence is pure Consciousness. You are the fearless guardian of Divine Light. When you lose all sense of self the bonds of a thousand chains will vanish. Lose yourself completely, Return to the root of the root of your own soul. You descended from the pure Word of God, but you turned your sight to the empty show of this world.
Alas, how can you be satisfied with so little? Why are you so enchanted by this world when a mine of gold lies within you? Open your eyes and come — Return to the root of the root of your own soul. How long will you suffer from the blows of a nonexistent hand?
You are a ruby encased in granite. How long will you deceive us with this outer show? O friend, we can see the truth in your eyes! After one moment with that glorious Friend you became loving, radiant, and ecstatic. Your eyes were sweet and full of fire. Come, return to the root of the root of your own soul.
So come! Return to the root of the root of your own soul. Soul of all souls, Life of all life — you are That. Seen and unseen, moving and unmoving — you are That. What else could you be? There is a candle in your heart,. There is a void in your soul,. You feel it, don't you? If anyone asks you. When someone mentions the gracefulness of the night sky, climb up on the roof and dance and say, Like this.
If anyone wants to know what spirit is, or what "God's fragrance" means, lean your head toward him or her. Keep your face there close. Like this. When someone quotes the old poetic image about clouds gradually uncovering the moon, slowly loosen knot by knot the strings of your robe. If anyone wonders how Jesus raised the dead, don't try to explain the miracle.
Kiss me on the lips. The soul sometimes leaves the body, then returns.
When someone doesn't believe that, walk back into my house. When lovers moan, they're telling our story. I am a sky where spirits live. Listen to the unstruck sounds, and what sifts through that music. Be a helpful friend, and you will become a green tree with always new fruit, always deeper journeys into love.
Stay with friends who support you in these. Talk with them about sacred texts, and how you are doing, and how they are doing, and keep your practices together. A warm, rainy day-this is how it feels when friends get together. Friend refreshes friend then, as flowers do each others, in a spring rain.
Friendship of the wise is good; a wise enemy is better than a foolish friend. The intelligent desire self-control; children want candy.
All people on the planet are children, except for a very few. No one is grown up except those free of desire. This place is a dream. Only a sleeper considers it real. Then death comes like dawn, and you wake up laughing at what you thought was your grief. Because God sends hope in the most desperate moments. Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter.
It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. Sorrow… It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow.
Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place. Join the community of saints and know the delight of your own soul. Enter the ruins of your heart and learn the meaning of humility. Grief can be the garden of compassion. The wound is the place where the light enters you.
Whoever finds love beneath hurt and grief disappears into emptiness with a thousand new disguises. But listen to me. For one moment quit being sad. Hear blessings dropping their blossoms around you. Keep your gaze on the bandaged place. More death quotes , pain quotes. Make peace with the universe. Take joy in it. Do good to the people for the sake of God or for the peace of your own soul that you may always see what is pure and save your heart from the darkness of hate.
If you could get rid of yourself just once, the secret of secrets would open to you. The face of the unknown, hidden beyond the universe would appear on the mirror of your perception. It will turn to gold. Resurrection will be now. Every moment, a new beauty. A little while alone in your room will prove more valuable than anything else that could ever be given you. Only when I stopped believing in myself did I come into this beauty.
Your old life was a frantic running from silence. Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking. Live in silence. A wealth you cannot imagine flows through you. Do not consider what strangers say. Be secluded in your secret heart-house, that bowl of silence. Stop, open up, surrender the beloved blind silence. When all your desires are distilled; You will cast just two votes — to love more, and be happy. Even if all the doors are closed, a secret path will be there for you that no one knows.
It is easy to thank after obtaining what you want, thank before having what you want. My dear heart, never think you are better than others. Listen to their sorrows with compassion. Everything is emptiness. Everything else, accidental. Emptiness brings peace to your loving. Everything else, disease. In this world of trickery, emptiness is what your soul wants.
There is one way of breathing that is shameful and constricted. Do not feel lonely, the entire universe is inside you. On a day when the wind is perfect, the sail just needs to open and the world is full of beauty.
Today is such a day. The sky will bow down to your beauty, if you do.
Be like the sun for grace and mercy. Be like running water for generosity. Be like death for rage and anger. Be like the Earth for modesty. Appear as you are. Be as you appear. Daylight, full of small dancing particles and the one great turning, our souls are dancing with you, without feet, they dance. Can you see them when I whisper in your ear?
You have no need to travel anywhere — journey within yourself.
Enter a mine of rubies and bathe in the splendor of your own light. If you wish to shine like day, burn up the night of self-existence. Dissolve in the Being who is everything. Your heart is the size of an ocean. Go find yourself in its hidden depths. Dancing is when you rise above both worlds, tearing your heart to pieces and giving up your soul. In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.
Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. A divine dance appears in the soul and the body at the time of peace and union. Anyone can learn the dance, just listen to the music.
Be kind to yourself, dear — to our innocent follies.
Forget any sounds or touch you knew that did not help you dance. You will come to see that all evolves us. In order to understand the dance one must be still. And in order to truly understand stillness one must dance. Dance, and make joyous the love around you. Dance, and your veils which hide the Light shall swirl in a heap at your feet. We came whirling out of nothingness, scattering stars like dust… The stars made a circle, and in the middle, we dance.
I am a drunkard from another kind of tavern. I dance to a silent tune. I am the symphony of stars. There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the ground; there are a thousand ways to go home again. Put your thoughts to sleep, do not let them cast a shadow over the moon of your heart.
Let go of thinking. On what is fear: Non-acceptance of uncertainty.
If we accept that uncertainty, it becomes an adventure! When you go through a hard period, when everything seems to oppose you, when you feel you cannot even bear one more minute, never give up! Because it is the time and place that the course will divert! Why are you so enchanted by this world, when a mine of gold lies within you?
You were born with potential.
You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. You were born with wings. If something makes you happy in this world, you should think of what will happen to you if that thing were taken away.
If reason dominates in man, he rises higher than angels. If lust overpowers man, he descends lower than the beast. Would you become a pilgrim on the road of love? The first condition is that you make yourself humble as dust and ashes.
Love is the water of life. Everything other than love for the most beautiful God is agony of the spirit, though it be sugar-eating. What is agony of the spirit? To advance toward death without seizing hold of the water of life. If in thirst you drink water from a cup, you see God in it. Those who are not in love with God will see only their own faces in it.
To become spiritual , you must die to self, and come alive in the Lord. Only then will the mysteries of God fall from your lips. To die to self through self-discipline causes suffering but brings you everlasting life. There is a loneliness more precious than life. I transformed into a very happy individual and understood the potentials in me. Hi Asad Meah Thank you very much sharing the Rumi quotes. All of the them touched my heart.
