Rumi Wisdom

Rumi summarized his life
in these three statements:

I was immature;
I became experienced;
I was consumed.


If you want what visible reality
can give, you’re an employee

If you want the unseen world,
you’re not living your truth

Both wishes are foolish,
but you’ll be forgiven for forgetting
that what you really want
is love’s confusing joy


Gamble everything for love,
if you are a true human being

If not, leave this gathering
Half-heartedness doesn’t reach
into majesty

You set out to find God,
but then you keep
stopping for long periods
at mean-spirited roadhouses


In a boat down a fast running creek,
it feels like trees on the bank
are rushing by

What seems to be changing around us
is rather the speed of our craft
leaving this world
