The truth was a mirror… in the hands of God. It fell, and broke into pieces. Everybody took a piece of it, and they looked at it and… thought they had the truth
When the mirror of the heart becomes pure and clear, impressions of the other… world will become manifest. The image and the image-maker will become visible, like the… carpet and the carpet-spreaderღ.*.Rumi.*.ღ.

impressions of the other…
world will become manifest.

will become visible, like the…

I choose to love you in silence… For in silence I find no rejection,
I choose to love you in loneliness… For in loneliness no one owns you but me,
I choose to adore you from a distance… For distance will shield me from pain,
I choose to kiss you in the wind… For the wind is gentler than my lips,
I choose to hold you in my dreams… For in my dreams, you have no end.

For the wind is gentler than my lips,

I choose to hold you in my dreams…
For in my dreams, you have no end.

One Whisper of the BelovedLovers share a sacred decree –  to seek the Beloved. They roll head over heels, rushing toward the Beautiful One like a torrent of water.
In truth, everyone is a shadow of the Beloved –  Our seeking is His seeking, Our words are His words.
At times we flow toward the Beloved like a dancing stream. At times we are still water held in His pitcher. At times we boil in a pot turning to vapor –  that is the job of the Beloved.
He breathes into my ear until my soul takes on His fragrance. He is the soul of my soul –  How can I escape? But why would any soul in this world want to escape from the Beloved?
He will melt your pride making you thin as a strand of hair, Yet do not trade, even for both worlds, One strand of His hair.
We search for Him here and there while looking right at Him. Sitting by His side we ask, “O Beloved, where is the Beloved?”
Enough with such questions! –  Let silence take you to the core of life.
All your talk is worthless When compared to one whisper of the Beloved.ღ.*.Rumi.*.ღ.

One Whisper of the Beloved
Lovers share a sacred decree –
to seek the Beloved.
They roll head over heels,
rushing toward the Beautiful One
like a torrent of water.

In truth, everyone is a shadow of the Beloved –
Our seeking is His seeking,
Our words are His words.

At times we flow toward the Beloved
like a dancing stream.
At times we are still water
held in His pitcher.
At times we boil in a pot
turning to vapor –
that is the job of the Beloved.

He breathes into my ear
until my soul
takes on His fragrance.
He is the soul of my soul –
How can I escape?
But why would any soul in this world
want to escape from the Beloved?

He will melt your pride
making you thin as a strand of hair,
Yet do not trade, even for both worlds,
One strand of His hair.

We search for Him here and there
while looking right at Him.
Sitting by His side we ask,
“O Beloved, where is the Beloved?”

Enough with such questions! –
Let silence take you to the core of life.

All your talk is worthless
When compared to one whisper
of the Beloved.

Only you
I choose among the entire world.
Is it fair of you
letting me be unhappy?

My heart is a pen in your hand.
It is all up to you
to write me happy or sad.

I see only what you reveal
and live as you say.
All my feelings have the color
you desire to paint.

From the beginning to the end,
no one but you.

Please make my future
better than the past.

When you hide I change
to a Godless person,
and when you appear,
I find my faith.

Don’t expect to find
any more in me
than what you give.

Don’t search for
hidden pockets because
I’ve shown you that
all I have is all you gave.

“I Have Vanished In the early morning, A lover asked her beloved, “Do you love me more than yourself?” “More than myself? For sure I have no self any more— I am you already. The ‘I’ has gone; the ‘you’ has come about. Even my identity is gone. The answer is taken for granted. ‘You and I’ has no meaning. The ‘I’ has vanished like a drop into an ocean of honey.”Rumi

If you find me not within you, you will never find me. For, I have been with you, from the beginning of meRumi

You have been
hiding so long
aimlessly drifting
in the sea of

Even so
You have always been
connected to me
Connected, revealed
in the known
in the unmanifest
I am life itself

Oh how nameless, how free I am!When will I see myself as I really am?Tell me your secrets here and now, you said.In this realm, I said, where is the here and now?How can my soul be stillwhen I am whirling in stillness?Not in this world, not in the next I am.Where I am, both worlds disappear.Naught, I am free of profit and loss.How singular, I neither gain nor lose.I said: My Soul, you’re the light of my eyes.Where I am, he said, no need for eyes.That’s what you are, I said. Stop it!he said. No words can capture me.I said: Since you are more than tongue can tell,behold how eloquent I am without a tongue.Like the moon, without legs, I race through nothingness.See how fast I can run without legs!A voice called: Why so fast?Look into the hidden, find my true face.✻.ღ.*.Rumi.*.ღ.✻

Oh how nameless, how free I am!
When will I see myself as I really am?
Tell me your secrets here and now, you said.
In this realm, I said, where is the here and now?
How can my soul be still
when I am whirling in stillness?
Not in this world, not in the next I am.
Where I am, both worlds disappear.
Naught, I am free of profit and loss.
How singular, I neither gain nor lose.
I said: My Soul, you’re the light of my eyes.
Where I am, he said, no need for eyes.
That’s what you are, I said. Stop it!
he said. No words can capture me.
I said: Since you are more than tongue can tell,
behold how eloquent I am without a tongue.
Like the moon, without legs,
I race through nothingness.
See how fast I can run without legs!
A voice called: Why so fast?
Look into the hidden, find my true face.

No end,
no end to the journey
no end, no end never
how can the heart in love
ever stop opening
if you love me,
you won’t just die once
in every moment
you will die into me
to be reborn

Into this new love, die
your way begins
on the other side
become the sky
take an axe to the prison wall,
escape walk out like someone
suddenly born into color
do it now
