Rumi

Out beyond ideas of right doing and wrong doing, there is a field. I will meet you there.

 
The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don't go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don't go back to sleep.
But you'll be forgiven for forgetting
That what you really want is
Love's confusing joy.

 

Fall in love in such a way
That it frees you from any connecting.
Love is the soul's light, 
The taste of morning, 
No me, no we, no claim of being. 
These words are the smoke the fire gives off 
As it absolves its defects, 
As eyes in silence, tears, face. 
Love cannot be said.


Humankind is being led along an evolving course,
Through this migration of intelligences,
And though we seem to be sleeping,
There is an inner wakefulness
That directs the dream,
And that will eventually startle us back
To the truth of who we are. 

 
Don't insist on going where you think you want to go. Ask the way to the spring.


Essence is emptiness. Everything else, accidental. Emptiness brings peace to your loving.

 

A true human being is not human! This candle does not burn. It illuminates.


You must set fire to have light.


Every war and every conflict between human beings has happened because of some disagreement about names.
 
You are the truth from foot to brow. Now, what else would you like to know?
