A Quote by Kabir Helminski on sufism, sufi, presence, and present

The person who makes all cares into one care
the care for simply staying present
will be cared for by that presence
which is creative love.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on sufi, sufism, mystic, persia, whirling, and dervish

 

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 Shams-ud-din Muhammad (Hafiz) on sufi, sufism, mystic, persia, whirling, and dervish

I have come into this world to see this:
the sword drop from men's hands even at the height
of their arc of anger
because we have finally realized there is just one flesh to wound
and it is His - the Christ's, our
Beloved's.
 
I have come into this world to see this: all creatures hold hands as
we pass through this miraculous existence we share on the way
to even a greater being of soul,
a being of just ecstatic light, forever entwined and at play
with Him.

I have come into this world to hear this:
every song the earth has sung since it was conceived in
the Divine's womb and began spinning from
His wish,

every song by wing and fin and hoof,
every song by hill and field and tree and woman and child,
every song of stream and rock,
 
every song of tool and lyre and flute,
every song of gold and emerald
and fire,

every song the heart should cry with magnificent dignity
to know itself as
God:
for all other knowledge will leave us again in want and aching -
only imbibing the glorious Sun
will complete us.
 
I have come into this world to experience this:
men so true to love
they would rather die before speaking
an unkind
word,
men so true their lives are His covenant -
the promise of
hope.

I have come into this world to see this:
the sword drop from men's hands
even at the height of
their arc of
rage
because we have finally realized
there is just one flesh
 we can wound.

Remember for just one minute of the day, it would be best to try looking upon yourself more as God does, for She knows your true royal nature.

A Quote by Hafiz on sufi, sufism, mystic, persia, whirling, and dervish

 

Even after all this time,
the sun never says to the earth,"You owe me."
Look what happens with a love like that.
It lights the whole sky.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on rumi, mevlana, open, we, we are all the same, one, oneness, same, knowing, listen, love, inspiration, joy opening, trust, self-discovery, realization, awakening, enlightenment, sufi, one love, and illuminated

We Are All the Same
Listen to the reeds as they sway apart;
Hear them speak of lost friends.
At birth, you were cut from your bed,
Crying and grasping in separation.
Everyone listens, knowing your song.

You yearn for others who know your name,
And the words to your lament.
We are all the same, all the same,
Longing to find our way back;
Back to the one, back to the only one.

Mevlana Rumi (1207 - 1273)

A Quote by Hazrat Inayat Khan on evolution, development, sufi, and sufi message

How can one explain spiritual progress? What is it? What is it like? Spiritual progress is the changing of the point of view.
