quote - Rumi (Jalāl ad-Dīn Muammad Rūmī)
Jalāl ad-Dīn Muammad Rūmī was a 13th-century Persian Muslim Poet, Jurist, Theologian & Sufi Mystic.
"Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu
Buddhist, Sufi, or Zen. Not any religion
or cultural system. I am not from the East
or the West, not out of the ocean or up
from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not
composed of elements at all. I do not exist,
am not an entity in this world or the next,
did not descend from Adam or Eve or any
origin story. 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 and that one call to and know,
first, last, outer, inner, only that breath
breathing human being."
~ Jalāl ad-Dīn Muammad Rūmī ~
"People of the world don't look at themselves,
and so they blame one another."
"Come, come again, whoever you are, come! Heathen, fire worshipper or idolatrous, come! Come even if you broke your penitence a hundred times. Ours is the portal of hope, come as you are."
"Love is the vital core of the soul,
and of all you see, only love is infinite."
