Rumi’s Love…

Posted in English, Poetry Selections at 12:29 pm by Rou...

“If the sky is not in love, then it will not be so clear…

If the sun is not in love, then it will not be giving any light…

If the river is not in love, then it will be in silence, it will not be moving…

If the mountains, the earth are not in love, then there will be nothing growing…”

 

— Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi

    Well… in another poem of Rumi called: “Look! This is Love!”, he says:

    “You lack a foot to travel?
    Then journey into yourself!

    And like a mine of rubies receive the sunbeams.
    Travel out of yourself.

    Such a journey will lead you to your self.
    It leads to transformation of dust into pure gold!” ”

    May be you should try exploring a bit into yourself… May be then you would love yourself, love the surroundings… and reach the ultimate love of GOD and everything around… 🙂

    I guess we all need to do this…. (Speaking of myself at least!)
