A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on love and pain

in

We are pain and what cures pain, both. We are the sweet cold water and the jar that pours. I want to hold you close like a lute, so that we can cry out with loving. Would you rather throw stones at a mirror? I am your mirror and here are the stones.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on buddhist, elements, eve, hindu, jew, muslim, religion, twoworlds, and zen

Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu, Buddhist, sufi, or zen. Not any religion
or cultural system. I am not from the East or the West, not out of the ocean or up
from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not composed of elements at all. I do not exist,
am not an entity in this world or the next, did not descend from Adam or Eve or any
origin story. My place is placeless, a trace of the traceless. Neither body or soul.
I belong to the beloved, have seen the two worlds as one and that one call to and know,
first, last, outer, inner, only that breath breathing human being.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on fear and silence

Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in silence.

Flow down and down in always
widening rings of being.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on love and unity

in

A lover asked his beloved,
Do you love yourself more
than you love me?

The beloved replied,
I have died to myself
and I live for you.

I've disappeared from myself
and my attributes.
I am present only for you.

I have forgotten all my learnings,
but from knowing you
I have become a scholar.

I have lost all my strength,
but from your power
I am able.

If I love myself
I love you.
If I love you
I love myself.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on risk, gamble, and journey

Gamble everything for love, if you are a true human being.
If not, leave this gathering.

Half-heartedness doesn't reach into majesty.
You set out to find God,
but then you keep stopping for long periods
at meanspitited roadhouses.

Don't wait any longer...
