Rumi-nations

Day 260…

Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi was a 13th century Persian poet, an Islamic dervish and a Sufi mystic. He is regarded as one of the greatest spiritual masters and poetical intellects. Born in 1207 AD, he belonged to a family of learned theologians. He made use of everyday life’s circumstances to describe the spiritual world.

Here are some of his words…

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.

What you seek is seeking you.

Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.

The wound is the place where the Light enters you.

Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.

Do not be satisfied with the stories that come before you. Unfold your own myth.

  1. Beautiful – I especially like these ones:

    “Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.”

    “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
