You have been interested in your shadow,
Look instead directly at the sun
It's a fortunate bird who's not intrigued with evening,
who flies in the sun we call Shams
- Rumi
<>Oh Companion That Abode Is Unmatched,
Where My Complete Beloved Is.
In that Place There Is No Happiness or Unhappiness,
No Truth or Untruth
Neither Sin Nor Virtue.
There Is No Day or Night, No Moon or Sun,
There Is Radiance Without Light.


I am so close, I may look distant.
So completely mixed with you, I may look separate.
So out in the open, I appear hidden.
So silent, because I am constantly talking with you.
- Rumi


There is a Secret One inside us;
the planets in all the galaxies
pass through his hands like beads.


"Respond to every call that excites your spirit." - Rumi


Dance, when you're broken open. Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you're perfectly free. - Rumi


I have been pierced by the arrow of love,
what shall I do?
I can neither live, nor can I die
Listen ye to my ceaseless outpourings,
I have peace neither by night, nor by day
I cannot do without my Beloved even for a moment
I have been pierced by the arrow of love,
what shall I do?
- Bulleh Shah


"Who are we, O Thou soul of our souls, 
that we should remain in being beside thee?
We and our existences are really non-existence; 
thou art the absolute Being which manifests the perishable.
- Rumi"


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. ― Rumi

Do not feel lonely, the entire universe is inside you.” – Rumi


"My place is placeless, a trace
of the traceless. Neither body or soul.
I belong to the beloved, have seen the two
worlds as one…"

"O friend! hope for Him whilst you live,
know whilst you live, understand whilst you live:
for in life deliverance abides.
If your bonds be not broken whilst living,
what hope of deliverance in death ?"
- Kabir


"If you merge your life in the Ocean of Life, you will find your life in the Supreme Land of Bliss."
- Kabir


"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
― Rumi


"No end, no end to the journey no end, no end 
never become the sky 
take an axe to the prison wall, escape walk out 
like someone suddenly born into color do it now."


"That's how you came here, like a star without a name. 
Move across the night sky with those anonymous lights."


"What hurts you, blesses you.
Darkness is your candle.
Your boundaries are your quest.
You must have shadow and light source both."


"With the Beloved's water of life, no illness remains
In the Beloved's rose garden of union, no thorn remains.
They say there is a window from one heart to another
How can there be a window where no wall remains?"
- Rumi


"Make your last journey from this strange world
soar for the heights where there is no more
separation of you and your home 
God has created your wings not to be dormant
as long as you are alive you must try more and more
to use your wings to show you’re alive."


"My life is a sacrifice unto Him
You alone exist; I do not, O Beloved!"
- Bulleh Shah
