Rumi's Poetic Path to Enlightenment


Rumi is a highly respected Persian poet and Sufi mystic whose work continues to inspire and captivate people around the world.


"The wound is the place where the light enters you."


"Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself."


"As you start to walk on the way, the way appears."


"What you seek is seeking you."


"Don't be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth."


"Let the beauty of what you love be what you do."


"The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along."


"In your light, I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art."


"The quieter you become, the more you can hear."


"Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment."


"The garden of the world has no limits, except in your mind."


"I want to sing like the birds sing, not worrying about who hears or what they think."


"This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet."


"Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder."


"When the world pushes you to your knees, you're in the perfect position to pray."


"Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself."


"Be empty of worrying. Think of who created thought! Why do you stay in prison When the door is so wide open?"


"Reason is powerless in the expression of love."


"I am not this hair, I am not this skin, I am the soul that lives within."


"You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean, in a drop."
