Rumi Quotes

Let Go of Your Worries Let go of your worries and be completely clear-hearted, like the face of a mirror that contains no images. If you want a clear mirror, behold yourself and see the shameless truth, which the mirror reflects. If metal can be polished to a mirror-like finish, what polishing might the mirror of the heart require? Between the mirror and the heart is this single difference: the heart conceals secrets, while the mirror does not.
— Rumi —

I went inside my heart
to see how it was.
Something there makes me hear
the whole world weeping.

— Rumi

Close the language door and
open the lovers window.
The moon won't use the door, only the window.

— Rumi

Life's waters flow from darkness, Search the darkness, don't run from it.

— Rumi

THE LAMPS ARE DIFFERENT
BUT THE LIGHT IS THE SAME
So many garish lamps in the dying brain's lamp-show,
Forget about them.
Concentrate on the essence, concentrate on the Light.
In lucid bliss, calmly smoking off its own holy fire,
The Light streams towards you from all things,
All people, all possible permutations of good, evil, thought, passion.
The lamps are different,
but the Light is the same.
One matter, one energy, one Light, one Light-mind,
Endlessly emanating all things.
One turning and burning diamond,
One, one, one.
Ground yourself, strip yourself down,
To blind loving silence.
Stay there, until you see
You are gazing at the Light
With its own ageless eyes

— Rumi

I eliminated duality with joyous laughter
Saw the unity of here and the hereafter
Unity is what I sing, unity is what I speak
Unity is what I know, unity is what I seek

— Rumi

Not the ones speaking the same language, but the ones sharing the same feeling understand each other.

— Rumi

Be melting snow. Wash yourself of yourself.

— Rumi

Love risks everything and asks for nothing.

— Rumi

All language is a longing for home.

— Rumi

Live in the opening where
there is no door to hide behind.

— Rumi

You must lance an ulcer to heal it. You must tear down parts of an old building to restore it, and so it is with a sensual life that has no spirit in it.

— Rumi

Sorrows are the rags of old clothes and jackets that serve to cover, and then are taken off. That undressing, and the beautiful naked body underneath, is the sweetness that comes after grief.

— Rumi
