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

You have been hiding so long
aimlessly drifting
in the sea of my love

Even so
You have always been
connected to me
Connected, revealed
in the known
in the unmanifest
I am life itself

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi

One morning I went to a place beyond the Dawn. A source of sweetness, that always flows, and is never less. I have been shown a Beauty that would confuse both worlds. I won't cause that uproar.  I am nothing but a head, set on the ground, as a gift for the Sun (Shams).
