Rumi

Rumi’s poems transcend human emotion, thought and experience to guide the reader through his life changing style of spiritual mysticism. Here are some of my favorites.


 

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don't go back to sleep.
 
You must ask for what you really want.
Don't go back to sleep.
 
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.
 
The door is round and open.
Don't go back to sleep.


 

When your chest is free of your limiting ego,
 
Then you will see the ageless Beloved.
 
You can not see yourself without a mirror;
 
Look at the Beloved, He is the brightest mirror.
