A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi

Oh Beloved,
take me.
Liberate my soul.
Fill me with your love and
release me from the two worlds.
If I set my heart on anything but you
let fire burn me from inside.

Oh Beloved,
take away what I want.
Take away what I do.
Take away what I need.
Take away everything
that takes me from you.

God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches you by means of opposites, so that you will have two wings to fly - not one.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on void, love, and longing

There is a void in your soul,
      ready to be filled.
You feel it, don't you?
You feel the separation
      from the Beloved.
Invite Him to fill you up,
      embrace the fire.

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

I was dead, then alive.
Weeping, then laughing.

The power of love came into me,
and I became fierce like a lion,
then tender like the evening star.

I've said before that every craftsman
searches for what's not there
to practice his craft.
