Subtle degrees
of domination and servitude
are what you know as love…
But love …is different
it arrives complete
just there
like the moon in the window.
Rumi
Love generates love.
Rumi
When the world pushes you to your knees,
you are in the perfect position to pray.
Rumi
Silence gives answers.
Rumi
Whatever you know or don’t - Only Love is real.
Rumi
You suppose you are the trouble.
But you are the cure.
You suppose that you are the lock on the door.
But you are the key that opens it.
Rumi
If God said, ‘Rumi pay homage to everything that has helped you enter my arms,’ there would not be one experience of my life, not one thought, not one feeling, nor any act, I would not bow to.
Rumi
When you find Love , You will find yourself.
Rumi
The whole world is a form for truth.
When someone does not feel grateful to that,
the forms appear to be as he feels.
They mirror his anger, his greed, and his fear.
Make peace with the universe.
Rumi
Don’t look for Love, look for the one looking for Love.
Rumi
I will find new meaning
in every joy and sorrow
In that silence
I will hear the voice of spirit
And freed from this world
I will see another world
Where the end is another beginning.
Rumi
Never lose hope, my heart,
miracles dwell in the invisible.
Rumi
Love said to me, there is nothing that is not me. Be silent.

Rumi

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 honorably.

He may be cleaning 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,
because each has been sent
as a guide from the beyond.

Rumi
