Mystical Rumi (III)

Molana

Today is Day 3, the last day of the challenge. I do not wish it to end. However, today I will share 3 quotes by Rumi. You will have to dive deep to know the depth of his each word. 


1. “I have lived on the lip
of insanity, wanting to know reasons,
knocking on a door. It opens.
I’ve been knocking from the inside.”


2. “The cure for pain is in the pain.”

(Here is the answer for all my melancholic poetries. I do not need motivation, I just need to pen down the pain, and some that is left to be felt as I gaze at the night sky.)


3. “My heart is so small
it’s almost invisible.
How can You place
such big sorrows in it?
“Look,” He answered,
“your eyes are even smaller,
yet they behold the world.”


This was in reponse to the Quote Challenge by Midnight Shadow and Gail. Thank you both, I so loved doing it.

I hope you all enjoyed reading the quotes.

Mystical Rumi (II)

Molana

Again I am raging, I am in such a state by your soul that every
bond you bind, I break, by your soul.
I am like heaven, like the moon, like a candle by your glow; I am all
reason, all love, all soul, by your soul.
My joy is of your doing, my hangover of your thorn; whatever
side you turn your face, I turn mine, by your soul.
I spoke in error; it is not surprising to speak in error in this
state, for this moment I cannot tell cup from wine, by your soul.
I am that madman in bonds who binds the “divs”; I, the madman,
am a Solomon with the “divs”, by your soul.
Whatever form other than love raises up its head from my
heart, forthwith I drive it out of the court of my heart, by your soul.
Come, you who have departed, for the thing that departs
comes back; neither you are that, by my soul, nor I am that, by your soul.
Disbeliever, do not conceal disbelief in your soul, for I will recite
the secret of your destiny, by your soul.
Out of love of Sham-e Tabrizi, through wakefulness or
nightrising, like a spinning mote I am distraught, by your soul.

– Rumi 

This is one of my very favorite poems by this mystical poet. It speaks volume and yes, makes me go wow every time I read it. Dig deeper as you read. You will realize the weight of his words by your soul.

Here is the second quote for Day 2, in response to the quote challenge by Midnight Shadow and Gail.
Hope you enjoyed it.

Mystical Rumi (I)

“Sit, be still, and listen,
because you’re drunk
and we’re at
the edge of the roof.”
― Rumi

So, I was nominated by Midnight Shadow and Gail for my second quote challenge. I am posting it again because I love quotes. Thank you very much, Gail and MS.
However, this time I am going to post RUMI’s quotes only.

To stimulate my brain, aching with nuisance this world throws at you, I went to the bookstore and read a book on Rumi’s poetries, and after reading a couple of poems, each vein in my body, all my senses knew nothing but the words he had spoken. I wanted to buy two of his books, but if only my pocket had allowed me. Buy me one on my birthday in case you are planning to gift me something? (Okay, jokes apart!)
I am calling him mystical, because he indeed is. Therefore, the quote challenge will be posted as “Mystical Rumi”.

I hope you enjoy the quotes that I will share with you all.
