When two people are meant for each other, no time is too long, no distance is too far, no one can ever tear them apart.You soak up my soul and mingle me. Each drop of my blood cries out to the earth. We are partners, blended as one.¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪¸¸ℒℴ ѵℯ ☼♫♪¸.•*¨*•¸¸...*..Rumi..*..

no time is too long, no distance is too far,
no one can ever tear them apart.
You soak up my soul and mingle me.
Each drop of my blood cries out to the earth.
We are partners, blended as one.

Love is, that never sleeps, nor even rests, nor stays for long with those that do. Love is language that cannot be said, or heard.ღ.*.Rumi.*.ღ

This is the prayer of each: You are the source of my life. You separate essence from mud. You honor my soul. You bring rivers from the mountain springs. You brighten my eyes. The wine you offer takes me out of myself into the self we share. Doing that is religion.ღ.*.Rumi.*.ღ

You are the source of my life.
You separate essence from mud.
You honor my soul.
You bring rivers from the
mountain springs.
You brighten my eyes.
The wine you offer

into the self we share.
Doing that is religion.

The world’s flattery and hypocrisy is a sweet morsel:eat less of it, for it is full of fire.Its fire is hidden while its taste is manifest,but its smoke becomes visible in the end.ღ.*.Rumi.*.ღ

eat less of it, for it is full of fire.
Its fire is hidden while its taste is manifest,
but its smoke becomes visible in the end.

Your love has wrested me away from me,
You’re the one I need, you’re the one I crave.
Day and night I burn, gripped by agony,
You’re the one I need, you’re the one I crave.

I find no great joy in being alive,
If I cease to exist, I would not grieve,
The only solace I have is your love,
You’re the one I need, you’re the one I crave.

Lovers yearn for you, but your love slays them,
At the bottom of the sea it lays them,
It has God’s images-it displays them;
You’re the one I need, you’re the one I crave.

Let me drink the wine of love sip by sip,
Like Mecnun, live in the hills in hardship,
Day and night, care for you holds me in its grip,
You’re the one I need, you’re the one I crave.

Even if, at the end, they make me die
And scatter my ashes up to the sky,
My pit would break into this outcry:
What I desire in both worlds in the same:
You’re the one I need, You’re the one I crave.

Everyone is overridden by thoughts; that’s why they have so much heartache and sorrow. At times I give myself up to thought purposefully; but when I choose, I spring up from those under its sway. I am like a high-flying bird, and thought is a gnat: how should a gnat overpower me?ღ.*.Rumi.*.ღ

Longing is the core of mystery. Longing itself brings the cure. The only rule is, Suffer the pain. Your desire must be disciplined, and what you want to happen in time, sacrificed.ღ.*.Rumi.*.ღ

Happy was IIn the pearl’s heart to lie;Till, lashed by life’s hurricane,Life a tossed wave I ran.The secret of the seaI uttered thunderously;Like a spent cloud on the shoreI slept, and stirred no more.He set the world a flame,And laid me on the same;A hundred tongue of fireLapped round my pyreAnd when the blazing tideEngulfed me, and I sighed,Upon my mouth in hasteHis Hand His placed..*..Rumi..*..

Happy was I
In the pearl’s heart to lie;
Till, lashed by life’s hurricane,
Life a tossed wave I ran.

The secret of the sea
I uttered thunderously;
Like a spent cloud on the shore
I slept, and stirred no more.

He set the world a flame,
And laid me on the same;
A hundred tongue of fire
Lapped round my pyre

And when the blazing tide
Engulfed me, and I sighed,
Upon my mouth in haste
His Hand His placed

I do not exist, am not an entity in this world or the next, did not descend from Adam and Eve or any origin story. My place is the placeless, a trace of the traceless.Neither body or soul.

If you try to fit the ocean in a jug
How small will be your drinking mug?
Whoever lovingly lost shirt on his back
Was cleansed from greed and wanton attack
Rejoice in our love, which would trade
Ailments, of every shade and every grade
With the elixir of self-knowing, chaste
With Hippocratic and Galenic taste.
Seek the love that cannot be confined
Reflection in the mirror is object defined.
Do you know why the mirror never lies?
Because keeping a clean face is its prize.
