A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on spiritual work

Work. Keep digging your well.
Don't think about getting off from work.
Water is there somewhere.
Submit to daily practice.
Your loyalty to that
Is a ring at the door.
Keep knocking, and the joy inside
Will eventually open a window
and look out to see who's there.

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

The minute I heard my first love story
I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was.

Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in eachother all along.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi

We search for Him here and there
while looking right at Him.
Sitting by His side we ask,
"O Beloved, where is the Beloved?"

Enough with such questions! –
Let silence take you to the core of life.

All your talk is worthless
When compared to one whisper
of the Beloved.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi

why are you so busy
with this or that or good or bad
pay attention to how things blend

why talk about all
the known and the unknown
see how unknown merges into the known

why think separately
of this life and the next
when one is born from the last

Whatever you lost through fate,
be certain that it saved you from pain.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi

If you don’t try to fly,
and so break yourself apart,
you will be broken open by death,
when it’s too late for all you could become.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi

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.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on poetry rumi

The blue sky opens out farther and farther,
The daily sense of failure goes away,
the damage I have done to myself fades,
a million suns come forward with light,
when I sit firmly in that world.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi

Be with those who help your being.
Don't sit with indifferent people, whose breath
comes cold out of their mouths.
