Jalal ad-Din Rumi quotes

[Rumi was born in 1207 in Afganistan and until the age of thirty-seven was a brilliant scholar and popular teacher. But his life changed forever when he met Shams of Tabriz, of whom Rumi said, "What I had thought of before as God, I met today in a human being." From this mysterious and esoteric friendship came a new height of spiritual enlightenment.   When Shams disappeared, Rumi began his transformation from scholar to artist, and his poetry began to fly. After a very prolific life as a poet and Sufi mystic, Rumi died in Konya, Turkey where he had lived most of his life 1]

Rumi - Thoughts Of Divine Love n Wisdom

ďYour task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.Ē

ďYou were born with wings. Why prefer to crawl through life?Ē

The only lasting beauty is the beauty of the heart. -Rumi.

Let your teacher be LOVE itself

Love drives you mad
from revelation to revelation
through ordeal after ordeal
until humble and broken
you are carried tenderly
into the heart of the rose.
~Rumi♥

 

LOVE is reckless; not reason.
Reason seeks a profit.
LOVE comes on strong, consuming herself, unabashed.

One day your heart will take you to your Lover. One day your soul will carry you to the Beloved.
Don't get lost in your pain, know that one day your pain will become your cure.
~Rumi
I will set You on my breath
so You will become my life.
~Rumi
Shhh ...
No more words.
Hear only the voice within.
~Rumi

 

Without you I swear - even if I fly, I'm sad as a dark cloud.
Without you - even in a rose garden I feel in prison.
I swear again!

There is no liquid
Like a tear from a Loverís eye!
~Rumi
I'll hang your LOVE on the forehead of heaven.
I'll lay your cruel hands on my hurting heart.
Where you walk, where your foot touches earth,
I'll secretly go, just to lay eyes on that dirt.
~Rumi
What is your life about, anyway?
Nothing but a struggle to be someone.
Nothing but a running...
from your own silence.
~Rumi
Prayer clears the mist and
brings back PEACE to the SOUL.
~Rumi
Purify your eyes and see the pure world.
Your life will fill with radiant forms.
~Rumi
LOVE is beyond body,
mind, heart, and soul.
A lover is simply in LOVE!
~Rumi

 
I can be without anyone
But not without You.
You twist my heart, dwell in my mind
And fill my eyes, You are my joy
I canít be without You.
 
Sometimes You are kind, sometimes unfaithful,
You break my heart but
My Love, my essence, do not go away
I canít be without You.
You are the head and I am the feet
You are the hand, I am our banner
If You leave, I will perish
I canít be without You.
You have erased my image, taken my sleep
Youíve torn me away from everybody but
I canít be without You.
I find no joy in life or relief in death.
Why donít You say it too.
I canít be without You.
~Rumi

There is someone who looks after us
from behind the curtain.
In truth we are not here.
This is our shadow!
~Rumi♥

 

Love is not written on paper,
for paper can be erased.
Nor is it etched on stone,
for stone can be broken.
But it is inscribed on a heart
and there it shall remain forever.
~Rumi

Let go of anger, it may taste sweet
but it kills.
Donít become itís victim.
You need humility
to climb to freedom.
~Rumi

I am a bird of Paradise,
I am not of earthy realm.
For a few days imprisoned
In my cage of flesh and bone.
My soul is my guide,
...See More

 

 

I merged so completely with Love, and
was so fused, that I became Love.
And Love became me.
~Rumi

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I can be without anyone
But not without You.
You twist my heart,
Dwell in my mind
And fill my eyes Ö
 
You are my joy.
I canít be without You.
~Rumi

 

You have to
keep breaking your HEART-
until it opens!

 

They say there is a window
from one heart to another!
How can there be a window
where no wall remains?

'Late, by myself, in the boat of myself,
No light and no land anywhere,
Cloud cover thick,
I try to stay just above the surface,
Yet I'm already under and living within the ocean.'
~Rumi

 

 

 

 

Love drives you mad
from revelation to revelation
through ordeal after ordeal
until humble and broken
you are carried tenderly
into the heart of the rose.
~Rumi♥

 

 

 

 

You should be silent,
because when you are in silence
you plunge more deeply into
the world of ecstasy.

 

 

 

The religion of Love
is a sea without
a shore,where the
Lovers drown
without a sigh,
without a cry.
