“Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.” ― Rumi, The Essential Rumi
At night, I open the window and ask the moon to come and press its face against mine. Breathe into me. Close the language-door and open the love-window. The moon won’t use the door, only the window. ~Rumi
The soul at dawn is like darkened water that slowly begins to say thank you, thank you. Then at sunset, again, Venus gradually changes into the moon and then the whole nightsky. This comes of smiling back at your smile.
Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself. Rumi
There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the earth. ~Rumi
I realize that the dawn when we’ll meet again will never break, so I give it up, little by little, this love. But something in me laughs as I say this, someone shaking his head and chuckling softly, Hardly, hardly –Rumi
Does anyone know who this beauty is?
Whatever you keep hidden in your heart, God manifests in you outwardly. Whatever the root of the tree feeds on in secret, affects the bough and the leaf. Rumi
