Bright Side

“Inside you are sweet beyond telling!
There is a sun in everyone.
I become a mirror that cannot close
its eyes to your longing.
My eyes wet with yours in the early light.
My mind every moment giving birth,
always conceiving,
always in the 9th month.
And then, an empty sky,
and everything is soul and flowering.
Everything is soul and flowering!”
Rumi

Fields of Freedom

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,

the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other”
doesn’t make any sense.”
Rumi

Probability of Love

“All these things shall love do unto you
that you may know the secrets of your heart.”

Rumi

There comes a point in one’s life when you begin to doubt the probability of love, when you see your broken heart and/or self and the games of chance as a burden… a time when you are just done with them. And that’s the precise moment you find the key to set them free…

Perpetual Prayer

“You can study God through everything and
everyone in the universe,
because God is not confined in a
Mosque, Synagogue, or Church.
But if you are still in need of knowing
where exactly His abode is,
there is only one place to look for Him:
In the heart of a true lover.”

Shamsi Tabrizi
(the spiritual instructor of Rumi)
