• Those tender words we said to one another
    Are stored in the secret heart of heaven:
    One day like rain, they will fall and spread,
    And our mystery will grow green over the world. 

    - Rumi

  • O love, O pure, deep love, be here, be now, be all.
    Worlds dissolve into your stainless, endless radiance.
    Frail living leaves burn with you brighter than cold stars.
    Make me your servant, your breath, your core. 

    - Rumi

  • It is the day of great, great joy.
    Let us all now, become friends.
    Let us join our hands.  Let us go to the Friend.
    We are all one, we are not two of one color and hue.
    Let us dance, let us go to the market, dancing.
    The beautiful friends now are starting to dance,
    So let's close the shop and dance, idle and free,
    Today is the day that the souls put on the robe of his grace,
    To mystery's side, to the side of mystery,
    We go dancing as God's guests.
    Al the gods and goddesses have pitched their tents in the garden
    And to see them, now we go to the rose garden

    - Rumi

  • The brilliant sun that shines in every heart
    For the heaven's earth and all creatures
    What a blessing!
    The heart can't wait to speak of this ecstasy
    The soul is kissing the earth, saying
    Oh God, what a blessing!
    Fill me with the wine of your silence,
    Let it soak my every pore
    For the inner splendor it reveals
    Is a blessing
    Is a blessing. 

    - Rumi

  • We search for Him here and there, while looking right at Him
    Sitting by his side, we ask: Oh 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 with one whisper of the Beloved.

    - Rumi

  • Awake awhile.
    It does not have to be forever.
    Right now.  One step upon the Sky's soft skirt would be enough.
    Awake awhile. 
    Just one True moment of Love will last for days.
    Rest all your elaborate plans and tactics for knowing Him,
    For they are all just frozen spring buds
    Far, so far from Summer's Divine Gold.
    Awake, my dear.
    Be kind to your sleeping heart.
    Take it out into the vast fields of Light
    And let it breathe.
    Say, “Love, give me back my wings.
    Lift me, lift me nearer.”
    Say to the sun and moon, say to our dear Friend,
    I will take you up now, Beloved,
    On that wonderful Dance You promised!”

    - Hafiz
