Note ! One poem per page to discover !

Somebody once asked Rumi

"Who are you?"

And he replied

"I do not know who I am. I am in astounding lucid confusion! If you label me and define me, you will starve yourself of yourself. If you box me down with labels and definitions, that box will be your coffin. I am your own voice echoing off the walls of God!"

So true, everything has to be mutually receptive.

If you knew the secret of Life
you too would choose
no other companion
but Love.

~ Rumi

here are some quotes from Rumi ...

"You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean, in a drop."

"Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion."

"Whatever lifts the corners of your mouth, trust that."

"Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself."

"Be like a tree and let the dead leaves drop."

"I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teaching of my Soul."

"In the blackest of your moments, wait with no fear."

"These pains you feel are messengers. Listen to them."

"Close your eyes, fall in love, stay there."

That's the nicest thing I've ever read. I believe..

Comment by desmond dillon on December 20, 2020 at 7:15pm

' i am a disciple, i am a follower, i am a devotee,

a sufi, a lotus eater, the original druid.

because the nectar of Love comes this way,

because i know i was with you everyday

and i didn't know it.

i slept with you every night but did not know it.

i thought that i was me but i was you

and didn't know it.'

Rumi

"I tried to find Him on the Christian cross, but He was not there;

I went to the temple of the Hindus and to the old pagodas,

but I could not find a trace of Him anywhere…

I searched on the mountains and in the valleys

but neither in the heights nor in the depths was I able to find Him.

I went to the Ka’bah in Mecca, but He was not there either…

I questioned the scholars and philosophers but He was beyond their understanding…

Then I looked into my heart and it was there

where He dwelled that I saw Him,

He was nowhere else to be found."

~ Rumi

My dear heart never think you are better than others. Listen to their sorrows with compassion. If you want peace, don’t harbour bad thoughts do not gossip and don’t teach what you do not know.

~ Rumi
