Rumi


The result of my life is contained in but three words:

I was unripe, I ripened and I was consumed

 

–Rumi

The lover sacrifices himself –for him death and removal are no different from staying

Rumi

The sun shines in a very happy room this morning, in which a monk is
where he belongs, in silence, with angels, his had and eye moved by the
living God in deep tranquility.  The watch ticks:  but perhaps there is
after all no such thing as time.

–Thomas Merton

My speech is imperfect and maimed, for perfect speech is only to be found yonder…Everything I say is speech’s skin- when has anyone discovered that mystery’s kernel from its skin? In these words of mine, seek that meaning!!!

Never be without Love, lest you be dead – die in Love and remain alive!!….Persevere in your intention, and encourage, advise and aid your friends to do the same, for this is the work, the rest is all regret.

Whatever purifies you is the correct road-I will try not to define it

–Rumi
