Words of Wisdom: I Am Your Moon
I am your moon and your moonlight too
I am your flower garden and your water too
I have come all this way, eager for you
Without shoes or shawl
I want you to laugh
To kill all your worries
To love you
To nourish you.
LET US FALL IN LOVE AGAIN BY RUMI…
Let us fall in love again
and scatter gold dust all over the world.
Let us become a new spring
and feel the breeze drift in the heavens’ scent.
Let us dress the earth in green,
and like the sap of a young tree
let the grace from within sustain us.
Let us carve gems out of our stony hearts
and let them light our path to Love.
The glance of Love is crystal clear
and we are blessed by its light.
My soul wants to fly away…by Rumi
My soul wants to fly away
when your presence calls it so sweetly.
My soul wants to take flight,
when you whisper, “Arise.”
A fish wants to dive from dry land into the ocean,
when it hears the drum beating “Return.”
A Sufi, shimmering with light,
wants to dance like a sunbeam
when darkness summons him.
You Are Every Sweet Song of Mine by Rumi
You are my Love, you are my Beloved;
You are my heart, my soul, and the faith of mine.
By your breath I am alive;
What is one life? – you are a hundred lives of mine.
Without you, bread cannot feed a man;
You are the water and the bread of mine.
By your touch, poison becomes medicine;
You are the cure and the sweet nectar of mine.
You are the garden, the grass, and the heavens;
You are the cypress, and the laughing jasmine of mine.
I have entered that supreme silence.
Please, you go on
My mouth may open, words may come out,
But you are every sweet song of mine!
Come, Let’s Fall in Love Again by Rumi
all the dirt
in this world
to shiny gold
a new spring
a love reborn
find our aroma
from the essence
of all who
emit heavenly fragrance
like a fresh tree
bloom and spread
all the blessings
right from inside.
Because of your love
I have lost my sobriety.
I am intoxicated by the madness of love!
Stranger to Himself
The secret of madness
is the source of reason.
A mature man
is insane for Love.
who has his Heart together
Is a thousand times
stranger to himself.
I choose among the entire world.
Is it fair of you
letting me be unhappy?
My heart is a pen in your hand.
It is all up to you
to write me happy or sad.
I see only what you reveal
and live as you say.
All my feelings have the color
you desire to paint.
From the beginning to the end,
no one but you.
Please make my future
better than the past.
When you hide I change
to a Godless person,
and when you appear,
I find my faith.
Don’t expect to find
any more in me
than what you give.
Don’t search for
hidden pockets because
I’ve shown you that
all I have is all you gave.
We are as the flute and the music in us is from thee;
we are as the mountain and the echo in us is from thee.
We are as pieces of chess engaged in victory and defeat:
our victory and defeat is from thee, O thou whose qualities are comely!
Who are we, O Thou soul of our souls,
that we should remain in being beside thee?
We and our existences are really non-existence;
thou art the absolute Being which manifests the perishable.
We all are lions, but lions on a banner:
because of the wind they are rushing onward from moment to moment.
Their onward rush is visible, and the wind is unseen:
may that which is unseen not fail from us!
Our wind whereby we are moved and our being are of thy gift;
our whole existence is from thy bringing into being.
