If I hold you in my heart, you’ll wither;
Become a thorn if I hold you in my eyes.
No, I’ll make a place for you within my soul instead
So you’ll be my love in lives beyond this life. ~ Rumi

(Reblogged from flowersonly)
You have no idea how hard I’ve looked
for a gift to bring You.
Nothing seemed right.
What’s the point of bringing gold to
the gold mine, or water to the ocean.
Everything I came up with was like
taking spices to the Orient.
It’s no good giving my heart and my
soul because you already have these.
So I’ve brought you a mirror.
Look at yourself and remember me.
Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion. - Rumi

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


Even if you leave in anger
for thousands of years
You will come back to me
for I am your goal and your end…
I didn’t come here of my own accord, and I can’t leave that way. Whoever brought me here, will have to take me home.
Words are a pretext. It is the inner bond that draws one person to another, not words.
I have come to drag you out of yourself and take you in my heart. I have come to bring out the beauty you never knew you had and lift you like a prayer to the sky.
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.
Love generates love.
When the world pushes you to your knees,
you are in the perfect position to pray.
Silence gives answers.
Whatever you know or don’t - Only Love is real.
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.
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.
