Mystical Poetry of Rumi!
The Sufi is hanging on to Muhammad, like Abu Bakr. As quoted in Rumi and Islam: I am the dust on the path of [Muhammad], the Chosen one.
If anyone quotes anything except this from my sayings, I am quit of him and outraged by these words As quoted in "Rumi and Self-Discovery" by Ibrahim Gamard, in Islamica Magazine Issue 15, Summer You were born with wings.
Why prefer to crawl through life? As quoted in Wisdom for the Soul: The Prophet said "In this way you have no more faithful companion than your works. Can you practice the meanest profession in the world without a master's guidance?
Whoever undertakes a profession without a master becomes the laughingstock of city and town. Mathnavi translated by William Chittick pp. Ee have a way from the house to the garden, we are the neighbor of the cypress and jasmine. Every day we come to the garden and see a hundred blossoms. In order to scatter them among the lovers, we will our robes to overflowing.
- Rumi (Jalāl ad-Dīn Muḥammad Balkhī)
They are the fragrance of those roses - we are the rosebush of certainty's rose garden. In the people of Hindustan the idiom of Hindustan is praiseworthy; in the people of Sind, the idiom of Sind is praiseworthy. I do not see the outward and the speech; I see the inward and the state [of feeling]. For the heart is the substance and speech an accident. So, the accident is subservient, the substance is the [real] object. The religion of love stands apart from all religions. For lovers the [only] religion and creed is God.
The lion who breaks the enemy's ranks is a minor hero compared to the lion who overcomes himself. Whoever gives reverence receives reverence. If you wish to shine like day, burn up the night of self -existence. Dissolve in the Being who is everything.
A Daybook of Spiritual Guidance translations by Camille Adams Helminsk and Kabir Helminski God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches by means of opposites, so that you will have two wings to flynot one. This discipline and rough treatment are a furnace to extract the silver from the dross.
This testing purifies the gold by boiling the scum away. Fortunate is he who does not carry envy as a companion. The idol of your self is the mother of all idols. To regard the self as easy to subdue is a mistake. If you wish mercyshow mercy to the weak. If you dig a pit for others to fall into, you will fall into it yourself.
Many of the faults you see in others, dear reader, are your own nature reflected in them. Were there no men of visionall who are blind would be dead. If you are wholly perplexed and in straits, have patiencefor patience is the key to joy. If you are irritated by every rub, how will your mirror be polished?
Anyone in whom the troublemaking self has diedIf you wish to shine like day, burn up the night of self-existence. There is no worse sickness for the soulO you who are proud, than this pretense of perfection. The heart and eyes must bleed a lot before self-complacency falls away. When the remedy you have offered only increases the disease, then leave him who will not be cured, and tell your story to someone who seeks the truth.
Arberry and Reynold Nicholson What is the body? That shadow of a shadow of your love, that somehow contains the entire universe. There is a community of the spirit Join it, and feel the delight of walking in the noisy street, and being the noise. There is no reality but God, says the completely surrendered sheik, who is an ocean for all beings. Gamble everything for love, if you are a true human being. Every object and being in the universe is a jar overflowing with wisdom and beauty, a drop of the Tigris that cannot be contained by any skin.
Christ is the population of the world, and every object as well. The miracle of Jesus is himself, not what he said or did about the future.
Good and bad are mixed. If you don't have both,you don't belong with us. Learn from Ali how to fight without your ego participating. God's lion did nothing that didn't originate from his deep center. This that we are now … The human body and the universe grew from this, not this from the universe and the human body. Anything you lose comes round in another form. Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking. Live in silence Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field.
I will meet you there. Observe the wonders as they occur around you. Feel the artistry moving through, and be silent. All day I think about it, then at night I say it. Where did I come from, and what am I supposed to be doing? I have no idea. My soul is from elsewhere, I'm sure of that, and I intend to end up there.
What is the soul? I cannot stop asking. If I could taste one sip of an answer, I could break out of this prison for drunks. 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. I never know what I'm going to say. I don't plan it. When I'm outside the saying of it, I get very quiet and rarely speak at all. Flow down and down in always widening rings of being. Bewilderment Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field.
When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about language, ideas, even the phrase each other doesn't make any sense. Between wrongness and rightness there is a field. As quoted in Counselling Psychology: Integration of Theory, Research and Supervised Practice by Petruska Clarkson Out beyond the world of ideas of wrong doing and right doing, there is a field.
As quoted in Lightning in a Bottle: Baum Out beyond ideas of right and wrong doing, there is a field. As quoted in Architects of Peace: Strategic Learning in a Knowledge Economy: Cross and Sam B. Israelit Raising martyred plants from their shrouds. Their mouths open in gratitude, wanting to be kissed. The glow of the rose and the tulip means a lamp is inside.
I tremble in the wind-beauty like silk from Turkestan. The censer fans into flame. This wind is the Holy Spirit. The trees are Mary. Someone sober will worry about events going badly. Let the lover be. Union From HallajI learned to hunt lions, but I became something hungrier than a lion.
Union This dance is the joy of existence.
I am filled with you. Skin, blood, bone, brain, and soul. There's no room for lack of trust, or trust. Nothing in this existence but that existence.
Union The place that Solomon made to worship in, called the Far Mosque, is not built of earth and water and stone, but of intention and wisdom and mystical conversation and compassionate action.
Solomon goes there every morning and gives guidance with words, with musical harmonies, and in actions, which are the deepest teaching. A prince is just a conceit until he does something with generosity. The Three Fish, p. Speech is a river. When the ocean is searching for you, don't walk into the language-river. Listen to the ocean, and bring your talky business to an end Traditional words are just babbling in that presence, and babbling is a substitute for sight. The way you make love is the way God will be with you.
Close both eyes to see with the other eye. Every object, every being, is a jar full of delight. Let the lover be disgraceful, crazy, absentminded.
Where The Two Oceans Meet - Poem by spiritual seeker
Someone sober will worry about things going badly. Let the lover be. The wailing of broken hearts is the doorway to God. Anything you lose comes round in another form. Friends are enemies sometimes, and enemies friends. I was a tiny bug. I was left behind. Now honored at the head.
You healed my wounded hunger and anger, and made me a poet who sings about joy. By the time you wake up your life may be over.दुनिया का सबसे बड़ा रहस्य // Miracle Two Seas meet but don't mix each other
Let the beauty we love be what we do. Let the lover be disgraceful, crazy, absent-minded. Someone sober will worry about events going badly. Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love.
Most people guard against going into the fire, and so end up in it. My friend, the sufi is the friend of the present moment. To say tomorrow is not our way. Nightingales are put in cages because their songs give pleasure. Whoever heard of keeping a crow?
No longer a stranger, you listen all day to these crazy love-words. Like a bee you fill hundreds of homes with honey, though yours is a long flight from here.
