Mevlana Rumi

1207 - 1273

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...

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on heartbeat, silence, name, and nameless

In the silence between your heartbeat bides a summons. Do you hear it? Name it if you must, or leave it forever nameless, but why pretend it is not there?

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on life, noise, silene, meeting, wild iris, forest, soul, pull, and call

What in your life is calling you,
When all the noise is silenced,
The meetings adjourned...
The lists laid aside,
And the Wild Iris blooms
By itself
In the dark forest...
What still pulls on your soul?

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on shadow, light, awe, heart, fire, and darkness

Shadow and Light Source Both

How does a part of the world leave the world?
How does wetness leave water?

Dont' try to put out fire by throwing on
more fire! Don't wash a wound with blood.

No matter how fast you run, your shadow
keeps up. Sometimes it's in front!

Only full overhead sun diminishes your shadow.
But that shadow has been serving you.

What hurts you, blesses you. Darkness is
your candle. Your boundaries are your quest.

I could explain this, but it will break the
glass cover on your heart, and there's no
fixing that.

You must have shadow and light source both.
Listen, and lay your head under the tree of awe.

When from that tree feathers and wings sprout on you,
be quieter than a dove. Don't even open your mouth for
even a coo.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on mystery

in

I am dying into your mystery, and dying, I am now no other than that mystery.  I open to your majesty as an orchard welcomes rain, and twenty times that.

I am an ark in the swift flood of time, and my companions, a fellowship.
Who throws in with us sails into light.
